Mustafa Amini is in line to make his Borussia Dortmund debut after being called into the matchday squad for Tuesday night’s DFB Pokal (German cup) clash with third division side Saarbrucken.

The 20-year old Australian midfielder, formerly of Central Coast Mariners, has been impressing in Dortmund’s reserves of late and has been called up by manager Juergen Klopp for the quarter-final trip to Stadion Ludwigspark.

Amini has made one other matchday squad under Klopp – in the Champions League against Manchester City – but has not yet featured for the BVB seniors.

Fellow Aussie Mitch Langerak is also in the squad and is a chance of starting in front of Roman Weidenfeller after keeping clean sheets in Dortmund’s past two German cup outings.
