Augsburg – uncertain to play coach Dortmund Bellingham

Must read

Borussia Dortmund are likely to be without midfielder Jude Bellingham for their second Bundesliga match at Augsburg on Sunday, coach Edin Terzic said on Friday.

Bellingham is nursing a knee injury and has not trained since last week’s 5-2 win over Borussia Monchengladbach.

“He hasn’t been able to practice since that match and we’ll have to wait because he’s still feeling some pain,” Terzic told a press conference.

“There is a big question mark on Sunday. It’s really impossible without team training.”

Dortmund are second with 67 points and two games left.

Terzik said his team had only one goal on Sunday, whether England international Bellingham was healthy or not.

“We haven’t won our last four games,” he said. “He has his reasons, but we know we need six points to reach our goal at the end of the season and the three points from Augsburg on Sunday are part of that.”

Dortmund will also be hoping Bayern, who host third-placed RB Leipzig on Saturday, grab four points with a provisional win, having slipped on the last matchday.

As far as Terzik is concerned, there is no talk of party plans when it comes to winning the title. Dortmund’s last league crown was in 2012 and since then they have been runners-up six times.

“I never think about the day after the season. I just want to focus on what’s in front of me. That’s the top priority.

“It’s been a long time since we’ve been here on match day on the 32nd, so I’m happy and happy. I’m happy to drive around Dortmund and see boys and girls wearing club shirts.
