The Foals began their final week of training of the Bundesliga season on Tuesday afternoon. There’s a lot of excitement for the Borussia Dortmund game this Saturday (15:30 CEST).

There are just four days until the end of the season, with just one game, against Borussia Dortmund, still to come. “It will be an intense and exciting end to the season, and I’m massively looking forward to it,” said Yann Sommer. “Everyone knows what’s at stake. We’ve given ourselves a good starting position and we’ll give everything to finish the season off successfully on Saturday.” Jonas Hofmann agreed: “Getting fourth place is in our own hands. It’s about throwing everythingat it and finishing our season well over the 90 minutes.”
