Team training was canceled on Thursday but players who tested negative trained individually.

The game on Sunday is a chance for Dortmund to revive its fortunes after defeat to Rangers in the Europa League and drawing with Augsburg 1-1 last week which allowed Bayern Munich to stretch its Bundesliga lead to eight points.
