In a game with little significance, Borussia Dortmund conclude their Champions League group stage campaign against FC Copenhagen on Wednesday evening.
Both teams’ fate in the Champions League is already sealed going into the game, with Borussia Dortmund certain to finish second and Copenhagen not in a position to get away from last place.

With a tight schedule in the Bundesliga on the horizon, BVB coach Edin Terzic is set to rotate his squad and rest some of his key players.

“We can certainly look forward to seeing a few players, who haven’t been used that much this season,” Borussia Dortmund coach Edin Terzic said at a press conference in Copenhagen on Tuesday attended by Bulinews.

“We will do everything we can to win tomorrow. It doesn’t matter who plays which position tomorrow: If we are all at 100%, there is a very high probability that we will win the game.”

In addition to their long-term absentees, Dortmund will be without two of the three goal scorers in the reverse fixture (a 3-0 win for Dortmund), as captain Marco Reus and Raphael Guerreiro didn’t make the trip to the Danish capital. Marius Wolf and Tom Rothe were not on the plane either.

“Marco trained with us yesterday, and we’re hoping that he will be available again on Saturday. The same goes for Guerreiro,” noted Terzic.

“Marius Wolf is still suffering from an infection and isn’t feeling well. We want to examine that more closely now. Rothe injured his knee in training.”

Meanwhile, FC Copenhagen confirmed earlier on Tuesday that Danish international forward Andreas Cornelius will be rested.

The home side will also still have to cope without Carlos Zeca, Akinkunmi Amoo and Nicolai Boilesen, who are injured. David Khocholava is not available either due to suspension.
