Dortmund coach Edin Terzic said in the press conference on Friday before the expected match, “There is a big question mark, we just have to wait.”
Bellingham, 19, suffers from knee pain after the last match, which Dortmund beat Borussia Mönchengladbach 5-2 in the last stage.
“Since that match, Jude has not been able to train with us,” Terzic added, noting that he had hoped to participate in at least one training session.
And he added, “Without training with the team, it will be difficult. It will not help if you send him to the field and he says after four minutes that he is not feeling well.”--
Dortmund occupies second place, a point behind Bayern Munich, who won the title in the past ten seasons, two stages before the end (68 vs. 67), and hopes to benefit from an incomplete step from the Bavarian giants, if it is in front of its guest Leipzig on Saturday or Cologne a week later to end its dominance over ” Bundesliga”.
Dortmund is seeking to achieve a good result outside its home, where it has not won since February 25, as it lost to Munich 4-2 and fell into a 3-match tie trap against Schalke 04-2, Stuttgart 3-3 and Bochum 1-1 in the league, and it also lost In front of Chelsea, England, 0-2 in the final price of the European Champions League, to be eliminated from the continental competition, and in front of Leipzig, 0-3 in the quarter-finals of the local cup.
Before traveling to Bavaria to face Augsburg on Sunday, Dortmund will enter into important calculations as Bayern Munich plays against Leipzig on Saturday.
