Team News

  • If Neven Subotic does not recover in time, Felipe Santana will start alongside Mats Hummels at centre-back.
  • Sebastian Kehl is injured and will be replaced by Sven Bender in defensive midfield.
  • Kevin Großkreutz, Moritz Leitner and Ivan Perisic compete for the spot on the left wing.
  • Jakub Blaszczykowski returns from injury, but he will most likely start on the bench.
  • Thomas Kleine is suspended and will be replaced by Lasse Sobiech, who will make his starting debut against his parent club.
  • With Milorad Pekovic suspended as well, Edgar Prib and Stephan Fürstner will most likely play in central midfield.
  • Thanos Petsos returns from injury to start on the bench.

Prediction

  • Dortmund are fourth in the table now and back on track after seven points from their last three Bundesliga games. A win against Fürth is a must to close the gap in front of them.
  • Fürth are still second last and have only won one game so far. They need to improve their defensive organisation as well as their chance conversion.
  • Expect this to be a hard-fought game, with former Schalke employees Gerald Asamoah and Mike Büskens currently at Fürth. Dortmund should be heavy favourites at home though.
