They know, realistically, that their only chance of playing in the competition next season is to win it in this campaign.

Borussia Dortmund, on the other hand, have been flawless in 2023, winning 11 out of 11 in all competitions.

N’Golo Kante and Christian Pulisic also took part in pre-match training.

Mason Mount was suspended after picking up three yellow cards in the competition, while Thiago Silva remained out with a knee injury.

Dortmund, meanwhile, could miss goalkeeper Gregor Coppel, who was injured in the warm-up against RB Leipzig at the weekend.

Adeyemi is also a doubt, as is Donyell Mallen, while Youssoufou Moukoko, Julien Duranville and Mathieu Morey are all absent.
