Borussia Dortmund take on Hannover tomorrow as their important run of fixtures continues.
Defeat to Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals of the DFB-Pokal on Wednesday ended their hopes of defending that title, and they now turn to the Bundesliga, where their aim is to finish second, given the 17-point deficit on Bayern Munich.
Then, on Tuesday, they play Shakhtar Donetsk for a place in the last eight of the Champions League, where Bayern could again be their opponents.
And to wrap it all up, they travel to local rivals Schalke for the Ruhr derby.
``We have a week ahead of us which can hardly be topped in terms of expressiveness,'' said coach Jurgen Klopp.
``Let's say we intend to get a lot out of this week.''
Getting the next seven days off on the right foot will be as much the responsibility of his side's defence as it is of their attack, which will once again be without the suspended Robert Lewandowski, unless their appeal against his three-game ban is successful.
Klopp is therefore hoping to have Mats Hummels back after a virus kept him out of the clash with his former club in midweek.
``Such an infection comes quickly, but we don't know if it will go as quickly, but maybe two days are enough,'' added the coach at a press conference.
Following their elimination from the Europa League last week, Hannover have to put all of their eggs in just the one basket for the remainder of the season, and their focus is on qualifying for Europe once again.
They will therefore be aiming to get something out of their trip to Dortmund, as well as gaining revenge for a 5-1 defeat to their hosts in the DFB-Pokal third round.
``We got rolled over back then,'' said coach Mirko Slomka. ``But this time, we want to get something and keep up our good away form.''
Slomka has an injury doubt over Mame Diouf, although Didier Ya Konan, who has scored three goals in the last two games, would be a strong replacement.
