Another major challenge for Borussia Dortmund's U19s: following their 5-1 triumph against Ajax in the UEFA Youth League in midweek, Mike Tullberg's team are preparing to welcome FC Schalke 04 to the Brackel youth performance centre for what will be both a derby and a top-of-the-table clash.
"It'll be a completely different match. We need to be ready for the opposition's power and strong tackling," explained Tullberg, who in addition to the injured duo of Jamie Bynoe-Gittens and Lion Semic will be without the suspended defender Colin Kleine-Bekel. But goalkeeper Marian Kirsch has recovered from illness and returns to the squad. (wiwi)
