Borussia Dortmund 'warm up' in Regent's Park ahead of Emirates Stadium clash

Jurgen Klopp revealed that he planned to enjoy his holiday in the English capital ahead of Borussia Dortmund’s clash against Arsenal on Wednesday night.

And the charismatic manager appears to have kept his word as the Bundesliga side trained in London’s world-famous Regent’s Park ahead of their Champions League game at The Emirates.

Klopp’s men boast a 100 per cent record in Europe this season, which is in sharp contrast to their miserable domestic form in Germany.

Dortmund, who were beaten 2-1 by Bayern Munich in the Champions League final at Wembley in 2013, are in 18th place in the Bundesliga table.

So, Klopp decided to make the most of a change of scenery as the BVB manager put his players through their paces at the club’s favourite London park on Wednesday.

Dortmund’s Twitter account posted a series of photos with the caption: “Pre-warm up earlier today in Regent’s Park #afcbvb #UCL #feiertag”

Despite their lapse against Anderlecht, Arsenal need only a point to reach the next phase for the 15th consecutive season against Dortmund, who have already booked their place in the last 16.

The sides are in the same Champions League section for the third time in four seasons.

Dortmund were 2-0 winners in Germany on matchday one, Ciro Immobile and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scoring either side of half-time.

Last season Dortmund won 2-1 in London before Arsenal then triumphed 1-0 in Germany with an Aaron Ramsey goal.
