The Germany international is eagerly anticipating this weekend's clash against the Bundesliga champions and was pleased with the cup win over St. Pauli
Mats Hummels believes Saturday's game against Bayern Munich is the perfect opportunity for Borussia Dortmund to gain confidence and get back on track after a difficult start to the 2014-15 campaign.
Jurgen Klopp's men sit a disappointing 15th in the Bundesliga table with just seven points from nine games, but Hummels does not fear this weekend's clash with the reigning champions.
"We have a great game on Saturday. It’s a great challenge, but if there’s one game to gain confidence, it’s the one against Bayern," Hummels told the official Dortmund website.
Dortmund beat St Pauli 3-0 on Tuesday evening in the DFB Pokal and Hummels was pleased with BVB's performance.
"We’ve never had to go through anything like this, it dents your confidence. But we’ve taken a great step forward against St. Pauli.
"The second half wasn’t as good as the first one, but it was important to progress. All in all [it was] a commanding performance from us.
