thumbnail Hello,

Having suffered the ignominy of a 4-1 defeat at home last season, BVB's coach is looking for a response from his team and believes Robert Lewandowski will make the game

Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp is hopeful his team can avenge last season's defeat against Hamburg this weekend.

Former HSV star Heung-Min Son and Artjoms Rudnevs both scored twice to complete a famous 4-1 rout over BVB last season.

And, as Klopp reflects on the memorable encounter, he hopes his players can leave the match behind as a "bad day at the office" and set things straight this time.

"This game was something special, nobody’s going to forget it in a hurry," he told a press conference.

"We tried everything and ultimately got nothing from the game – we have to accept that. Days like these are part and parcel of the game.

"We could do without them but, as a footballer, you have to accept that you’ll experience bad days at the office like these."

The coach is confident Robert Lewandowski, who picked up a knock while on international duty, will recover in time to make an appearance, Klopp added: "He will participate in the regular training session tomorrow."

However, Jakub Blaszczykowski is unlikely to play against Hamburg, as he is still suffering from a torn muscle.

"It is getting better, but it's still not looking good for him," Klopp said.
