Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels is confident of being fit for the Champions League final against Bayern Munich.

The German centre-back limped out of Dortmund's shock 2-1 defeat at home to Hoffenheim after damaging his right ankle.

However, an MRI scan revealed the injury is not as bad as first thought and the 24-year-old is expected to play a key role in the first ever all-German final at Wembley next Saturday.

"It's not torn and not as bad as we had first feared," Hummels told Sport Bild online.

"I am confident that it'll be OK for the final."
