Klopp Eyes Revenge Against Hamburg

MOST COMMENTED

Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp has his eyes set on revenge when his team hosts Hamburg at Signal Iduna Park on Saturday. Last season, Hamburg shocked the hosts with a 4-1 thrashing, despite Dortmund dominating the match with possession and chances.

"Obviously we are looking to get things straight after the last match against them [Hamburg]," Klopp said. "We have to admit we played really badly last year. It was bizarre, we dominated the game, had more than 30 shots on target, they had four and we lost." The two teams head into this weekend’s round of games in very different form: Dortmund is top of the Bundesliga with four wins from four games, while Hamburg is 12th with just four points from as many games

Klopp noted that Saturday’s match marks the start of a busy period for last season’s UEFA Champions League runner-up, which has five games over the next 15 days, including a trip to Napoli to kick-off the 2013/14 Champions League in midweek. Klopp maintains his men have been preparing for this period since the start of the season. “Everything we did up to now, was the preparation for this stage," Klopp said. “If you are honest and check the team sheets, you have to think we can win all these matches. Not because we are better than them but more because of the importance of the games.”
