THE TEAM NEWS

BORUSSIA DORTMUND

  • Borussia Dortmund made it four straight wins in all competitions with a comfortable 4-0 victory at Mainz 05 on Saturday, and could move to within a point of their table-topping opponents here.
  • Sancho's return to top form has been key to Dortmund's upturn, with the English youngster recording seven goals and four assists in his last six appearances.
  • Raphael Guerreiro is expected to be recalled on the left in place of Schulz but otherwise it should be an unchanged side, with no new injury concerns.

Predicted line-up (3-4-3): Burki; Hummels, Akanji, Zagadou; Hakimi, Weigl, Brandt, Raphael Guerreiro; Sancho, Reus, Hazard

Unavailable: Delaney (Injured), Schmelzer (Injured), Witsel (Injured)

Doubtful:

RB LEIPZIG

  • RB Leipzig shot to the top of the Bundesliga table with a 3-0 win at Fortuna Dusseldorf on Saturday, their sixth straight success in the league.
  • Forsberg and Poulsen are expected to be recalled in attack having been rested on Saturday, while right-back Mukiele could also start after coming on and scoring.
  • Coach Nagelsmann is hoping that Adams can make his comeback from injury before the winter break, but Kampl, Konate and Orban will definitely not play any part.

Predicted line-up (4-4-2): Gulacsi; Mukiele, Upamecano, Ilsanker, Halstenberg; Sabitzer, Laimer, Demme, Forsberg; Poulsen, Werner

Unavailable: Kampl (Injured), Konate (Injured), Orban (Injured)

Doubtful: Adams (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

This promises to be a cracking match between two of the title contenders, with both sides in good form. Borussia Dortmund rarely struggle for goals at home but Werner and Co. have also been banging in the goals for Leipzig lately, so expect fireworks at Signal-Iduna-Park.
