THE TEAM NEWS

BORUSSIA DORTMUND

  • Borussia Dortmund will want to bounce back after their 4-0 hammering at Bayern Munich two weeks ago, which saw them drop to sixth in the standings.
  • Midfielder Thomas Delaney has been ruled out for the rest of the calendar year after suffering an injury in action for Denmark, but he has not started the last two league games anyway.
  • Marco Reus has been declared fit after withdrawing from the Germany squad last week, but international teammate Nico Schulz is a slight doubt and will be assessed.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Burki; Hakimi, Akanji, Hummels, Raphael Guerreiro; Witsel, Weigl; Sancho, Reus, Hazard; Paco Alcacer

Unavailable: Delaney (Injured)

Doubtful: Schulz (Injured)

PADERBORN

  • Paderborn have lost nine of their 11 matches since returning to the top flight, including each of the last three, and they are already six points from safety.
  • Centre-back Une Hunemeier has returned to full training but coach Steffen Baumgart will make a late call on him, so Luca Kilian could lose his place against his former club.
  • Two players who definitely will travel to Dortmund are Babacar Gueye and Riffet Kapic, who missed the last match against Augsburg through suspension and illness respectively.

Predicted line-up (4-1-4-1): Zingerle; Jans, Hunemeier, Schonlau, Collins; Gjasula; Cauly, Vasiliadis, Sabiri, Holtmann; Zolinski

Unavailable: Ritter (Injured)

Doubtful: Hunemeier (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

A home game against the division's bottom side is probably just what Dortmund need after their humbling in Der Klassiker. They also welcome the Bundesliga's worst travellers so Favre's men, who have scored 15 goals in five home league games this season, should win handsomely.
