THE TEAM NEWS

BORUSSIA DORTMUND

  • It was a case of two points dropped for Borussia Dortmund in their 1-1 draw at Eintracht Frankfurt last Sunday, which left them three points behind leaders RB Leipzig.
  • Centre-back Mats Hummels will be assessed after limping off at Frankfurt so Dan-Axel Zagadou could make his first start of the season, while left-back Nico Schulz has been ruled out again.
  • Reserve goalkeepers Marwin Hitz, Luca Unbehaun and Eric Oelschlagel are all fit again while Thomas Delaney is set to start against his former club.

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

Unavailable: Schulz (Injured)

Doubtful: Morey (Injured), Hummels (Injured)

WERDER BREMEN

  • After back-to-back wins, Werder Bremen were comfortably beaten 3-0 at home to leaders RB Leipzig last Saturday and they face another tough task here.
  • The busy treatment room is gradually emptying at Bremen with coach Florian Kohfeldt confirming on Thursday that centre-backs Sebastian Langkamp and Milos Veljkovic will travel to Dortmund, although they are unlikely to start.
  • That said, Niclas Fullkrug is out after suffering a cruciate ligament tear in the build-up to the Leipzig game, leaving 19-year-old Josh Sargent and 40-year-old Claudio Pizarro as the only fit strikers.

Predicted line-up (4-1-2-1-2): Pavlenka; Lang, Gebre Selassie, Gross, Friedl; M. Eggestein; Sahin, Klaasen; Bittencourt; Rashica, Sargent

Unavailable: Moisander (Injured), Mohwald (Injured), Fullkrug (Injured), Bartels (Injured), Augustinsson (Injured), Osako (Injured), Toprak (Injured)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

Borussia Dortmund have scored nine goals in their two home league games so far this season. It is hard to see a depleted Werder Bremen side keeping Sancho, Alcacer and company at bay, and the visitors will find it hard to score themselves given their lack of attacking options.
