We can pull Bayern Munich down to our level, says Borussia Dortmund's Jurgen Klopp

Borussia Dortmund, Jürgen Klopp

Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp has spoken out bullishly ahead of Saturday's Bundesliga table-top clash with league leaders Bayern Munich.The trainer has claimed that his side can pull back the in-form Bavarians, who he feels have plenty to do if they are to win the title.

"We have the ability to use our tactics to pull Bayern down to our level," Klopp told Bild.
"Then we will be at eye level and will want to beat them."When asked whether he might as well return the Bundesliga trophy to Munich, Klopp was defiant.
"It remains in Dortmund until the end of the season. And it's not that we play for one half on Saturday and give the second to Bayern!
"However, he conceded that die Roten are a very strong side and will, in all likelihood, claim the Bundesliga trophy in May.
"For the record: the probability that Bayern win the title is very high. Because they have a really good team.
"Klopp also revealed that he expects strong support for his side as they visit the Allianz Arena, which has a capacity of 69,901."Our fans are resourceful. Eight to nine thousand will make it to the stadium in Bavaria. And if we subtract the Bayern fans who do not sing, then it's almost even.
"Kick-off from Munich is scheduled for 18.30CET on Saturday.
