THE TEAM NEWS

BORUSSIA DORTMUND

  • Borussia Dortmund hit five goals for the second game running as they thrashed Koln 5-1 at home last Friday, and they have lost just one of their last eight Bundesliga games.
  • Haaland followed up his debut hat-trick by again coming on and scoring twice against Koln, and it is only a matter of time before he starts.
  • Centre-back Zagadou is back in full training but coach Favre will make a late call on his involvement, while striker Paco Alcacer looks set to leave the club.

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

Unavailable: Delaney (Injured)

Doubtful: Zagadou (Injured)

UNION BERLIN

  • Union Berlin kept their points tally ticking over with a 2-0 win at home to Augsburg last Saturday but they have only taken one point from their last four away matches.
  • Abdullahi and Promel are nearing comebacks after lengthy absences and Schmiedebach will be assessed after missing last weekend's match.
  • Ujah and Bulter may rotate in attack again, with the latter coming back in, but otherwise it is likely to be the same team that started against Augsburg.

Predicted line-up (3-4-2-1): Gikiewicz; Friedrich, Subotic, Schlotterbeck; Trimmel, Gentner, Andrich, Lenz; Bulter, Ingvartsen; Andersson

Unavailable: Gogia (Injured), Mees (Injured)

Doubtful: Abdullahi (Injured), Promel (Injured), Schmiedebach (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

The signing of Haaland has added another edge to an already deadly Dortmund attack and it is hard to see Union Berlin stopping Favre's free-scoring side. The visitors are yet to record a clean sheet away from home in the Bundesliga so expect three points and a bag of goals for Dortmund again.
