Borussia Dortmund receive Gregor Kobel boost ahead of Bayern Munich clash

Borussia Dortmund’s Gregor Kobel has declared himself fit ahead of their Bundesliga Topspiel against Bayern Munich on Saturday evening.

The 25-year-old has missed Borussia Dortmund’s last four competitive games with a thigh injury he picked up during a warm-up prior to their win against RB Leipzig – Alexander Meyer replaced the Swiss goalkeeper in the four games.

Speaking to Sky Germany, Kobel said: “I’m definitely fit again.” BVB head coach Edin Terzic now has a decision to make.

Borussia Dortmund lead Bayern Munich by one point after the latter suffered a 2-1 defeat at Bayer Leverkusen. BVB have also won nine of their ten Bundesliga games in 2023, dropping points against Schalke in the Revierderby.

A win against Bayern Munich on Saturday would put Borussia Dortmund in an excellent position to win their first Bundesliga title since 2012, but Terzic and Die Schwarzgelben face a difficult task against Bayern, who replaced Julian Nagelsmann with Thomas Tuchel in a decision that shocked football.
