(SOUNDBITE) (German) BORUSSIA DORTMUND SPORTING DIRECTOR, MICHAEL ZORC, SAYING: "Of course, when you look at the scores you don't have to be a prophet to realise that we need a win to have a chance in the championship.

It is quite easy.

There is only six games left, so it is quite easy.

On the other hand, it will be very hard to achieve given that our rivals are Bayern." 16.

FAVRE AND ZORC AT NEWS CONFERENCE 17.

(SOUNDBITE) (German) BORUSSIA DORTMUND COACH, LUCIEN FAVRE, SAYING: "Bayern are top of the table.

But as said, every team is difficult in its own way and has its strengths, that is clear.

There is no need to talk about that.

Bayern is Bayern, but we are also there.

We won here a year ago, we won the European cup and we are working hard to keep going in this direction." 18.

FAVRE AND ZORC AT NEWS CONFERENCE STORY: Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara has been ruled out of Tuesday's Bundesliga top game against Borussia Dortmund after failing to recover from a muscle injury, Bayern coach Hansi Flick said on Monday (May 25).

The playmaker already missed Saturday's 5-2 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt.

Bayern are top of the table on 61 points, four ahead of Dortmund, with seven matches remaining in the campaign.

Victory in Dortmund would send them seven points clear and put them within touching distance of a record-extending eighth consecutive league crown.

Dortmund sporting Director Michael Zorc said it was obvious Dortmund needed a win to have a chance to take the championship.

The Bundesliga restarted 10 days ago with a strict medical protocol banning fans from the stadiums to minimise the risk of infection.
