The Blues are currently top of their group and can secure their spot in the knockout phase of Europe’s elite club competition with victory in Germany.
And the Chelsea boss, whose side are also top of the Premier League after an unbeaten start to the season, wants his side to secure their place in the next round as soon as possible.
“We have two matches to qualify, but it would be better for us to qualify tomorrow,” said Mourinho.
“We have so many matches in December so if you can avoid a crucial final match where you need to qualify against Sporting and avoid that pressure it would be very good for us.
“We will try to qualify tomorrow. This team is in a state of evolution. To go into the Europa League would be very bad for this team.
“Evolution gets faster when you are playing in the best competitions. It would be very disappointing if we went into the Europa League.”
