Yesterday’s press conference started with some good news! Michael Zorc confirmed that BVB and Raphael Guerreiro have a general agreement to extend his contract until 2023. The Portuguese international will likely sign the extension in the coming days and be a part of the black and yellows for the next few years.

- Zorc denies disagreement between Favre and the management
Rumors about a rift between Favre and the team as well as the management have made the rounds. Asked about it during the press conference, Michael Zorc emphatically denied a disagreement:
“We were very surprised about the coverage. There is no dissent. Do you think we’re giving a goal without having talked to the coach before, that’s crazy. How many times should we repeat that, I know you do not like that.”
Daily Buzz: The Bundesliga is back! Tomorrow BVB will host Bayer Leverkusen and the black and yellows have something to prove after their loss in Berlin. Unfortunately Dortmund have injury problems as lucien favre confirmed during yesterday’s press conference:
“Axel Witsel and Thorgan Hazard have both trained and are on the right track. As for Nico Schulz, it’ll be difficult. Manuel Akanji returned to running training yesterday.”
All four of those players are on their way back but most of them likely won’t make it into the starting eleven.
How should BVB line-up and what’s your prediction for tomorrow?
