Peter Bosz admits he is feeling the pressure ahead of Borussia Dortmund’s Friday night trip to Stuttgart but he is confident they can come through their current rough patch.
Dortmund made an impressive start to the campaign and set the early pace but they head into the clash at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in third spot and winless in their last four Bundesliga matches.
BVB’s dip in form has seen Bosz’s position and his tactics scrutinised but the former Ajax manager remains convinced his side will get back to winning ways sooner rather than later.
“You can feel that the pressure has grown in the past weeks,” he told reporters.
“I am convinced that we will find our way back on track.”
Dortmund are 1.67 to come out on top on Friday or 2.40 with a -1 handicap as the German top flight resumes following the international break.
Stuttgart are 4.75 to secure the victory and a draw can be backed at 4.20. BVB will be desperate to secure a win on Friday ahead of a tough run of games.
Dortmund host Tottenham in the Champions League next Tuesday before a home game against derby rivals Schalke in the Bundesliga the following weekend.
Bosz’s side then face a tricky trip to Bayer Leverkusen before their final group game in Europe against Real Madrid, although they may have already been eliminated from the tournament by then even if they do manage to down Spurs next week.
