KLOPP FOCUSED ONLY ON DORTMUND
Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp will be paying little attention to events at the Weser Stadion as his side make the short trip from their hotel to the Westfalenstadion.
During that bus journey, Dortmund could be crowned Bundesliga champions if Bayern Munich fail to beat Werder Bremen, but Klopp says he does not want any favours, and his side will not be giving any out either.
They host Borussia Monchengladbach knowing they can seal the title with a win, regardless of what happens in Bremen, and he says it is his side's duty to play for a win no matter what.
"It would have been better if we were all playing at 15:30," he said.
"Apparently, nobody at the DFL (German Football League) believed that this weekend could be decisive, at least not in our favour.
"The biggest challenge for us now is keep our full concentration against the fourth-best side this season."
Thoughts of Dortmund damaging the hopes of their local rivals Schalke in qualifying for the Champions League by letting Gladbach win will not even cross Klopp's mind.
"This extraordinary week has brought us into a position which could hardly be any more positive than it is and now we want to bring it all to an end professionally," he said at the pre-match press conference.
"I would like us to squeeze the maximum out of this season and get all the points that we possibly can."
Marco Reus will make the move from Gladbach to Dortmund in the summer and, should he shake off a niggling injury, he should take to the field at the Westfalenstadion as an opponent for the last time on Saturday.
Gladbach coach Lucien Favre has said there is no like-for-like replacement for the Germany international, but he seems to have found the next best thing in his native Switzerland.
Granit Xhaka told the Basler Zeitung that he has already agreed terms with Gladbach to join them from Basel next season.
"As far as I am concerned, everything is agreed and now it is up to the clubs," he said. "I would be disappointed if it did not work out."
Xhaka, like all of the Gladbach fans, may discover this weekend if he will be playing in the Champions League or the Europa League next season since a win for the Foals would secure them at least a top-four finish while defeat, combined with a win for Stuttgart, would take their fight for fourth spot down to the wire.
