Why Borussia Dortmund may want Bayern to win the Bundesliga

Reus, 30, has been out since February with the injury and had been expected to return to the Dortmund side post-lockdown, but his rehabilitation has hit a snag, with German publication Bild claiming that he "can't shoot with his right foot without discomfort".

However, Bild are now reporting that he could be out for the rest of the season.

Meanwhile, Dortmund would benefit from not winning the Bundesliga title this season, according to the latest Game of Opinions podcast.

It's a wildly inflammatory suggestion but German football expert Florian Bogner and Eurosport UK's Pete Sharland believe there is little appetite for them to triumph.

"I know some Borussia Dortmund fans and they're like, "To be honest, we don't want to be champions this year", said Bogner. Can you imagine doing a championship parade with nobody allowed to freak out?

If his progress continues the way it is though someone may be willing to spend a lot more than that earlier just so they can get a jump on everyone else for his signature. If they can win today and find a way to beat Bayern Munich, the title race could be turning.

Juventus are eyeing up a move for Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland next summer but are interested in Napoli's Arkadiusz Milik in the coming window as they look to bolster their attack, according to reports.

"But if they don't win the league, they're probably going to keep everyone together for at least another year, maybe two years".

According to WhoScored, the England global winger has scored 14 goals and provided 15 assists in the Bundesliga, and has scored two goals and provided two assists in the Champions League for Dortmund so far this season. "There's that much potential".

Right back Odriozola, now with Dortmund's rivals Bayern Munich, could be of particular interest to the German side considering Achraf Hakimi is set to return to the Bernabeu this summer when his two year loan spell with Lucian Favre's side ends.
