Diego Benaglio may have to miss Wolfsburg's match against Dortmund as his wife is close to giving birth.
"We will decide soon," the Swiss goalkeeper told reporters. "but I think I can play."
Head coach Steve McClaren, who has three sons, offered some encouragement for Benaglio:
"It all worked out [for me]. They were all born between games."
Mrs. Benaglio will hope her child can wait until after tomorrow's match, which is scheduled for 15:30 local time.
