Thomas Tuchel has revealed that Dortmund players are looking forward to playing more games.
Dortmund are fighting for BuLi glory, as well as the Europa League and the DFB Pokal.
Dortmund are gearing up for Sunday’s clash against Leverkusen and Tuchel has suggested a possible rotation.
“My players are used to it and love the extra challenge,” he said. “They can really show what they’re made of.
“It is important though, to take the time to recover properly.
“After the last game two days ago, we won’t be doing too much in training today, so that we will be in the best possible condition for tomorrow’s match.
“I might play fresher legs. That can rest on individual impressions.”
Roger Schmidt’s Leverkusen are unbeaten in six Bundesliga matches and Tuchel anticipates a tough test.
“They have quality individuals at their disposal and their style of play is very intensive” he added.
“Leverkusen are playing with lots of confidence at the moment and plenty of grit.
“I’m expecting a game at the highest level again.”
Dortmund were 3-0 winners in September’s reverse fixture.
