Despite all his self-confidence, BVB defender Nico Schlotterbeck expects a hot top game against pursuers Bayern Munich. “If everyone gets their top performance, we can win in Munich. But we also know that Bayern will be irritated by losing the lead in the table,” said the international of “Sport Bild” (Wednesday).

Regarding Borussia Dortmund’s title ambitions, the 23-year-old central defender said: “We never said that we didn’t want the title. I give everything every day for this chance. We have to continue to show the mentality, determination and fighting spirit every week , which distinguishes us this year.”

Before the Bundesliga summit on April 1, Dortmund is the leader with 53 points. FC Bayern has 52 points before the 26th matchday.
