BVB quest for a Europa League spot continues against KSC

After BVB's six consecutive victory against Frankfurt last week a packed Westfalenstadion will welcome KSC on Saturday. On three points behind Hamburg and Stuttgart Jürgen Klopp's side is poised to make a move into a Europa League spot should either side fail.

Die Schwarzgelben face a difficult day against Ede Becker's side as they are known for tough physical play and not afraid of grinding out a scoreless draw. Speaking respectfully of his former team, "his KSC", Tamás Hajnal said, "I promise to all Karlsruher that we will do everything to beat them as well. And who knows, maybe KSC avoid the drop after all."

Jürgen Klopp should have few changes to his lineup but expressed caution with the opposition:

"KSC have, for a team on this position, very few weaknesses. That´s unusual. It´s not going to be an easy game. We treat it with a lot of respect. We have to take advantage of our own strengths."
