Team News

  • If Neven Subotic does not recover in time, Felipe Santana will replace him at centre-back.
  • Sebastian Kehl and Sven Bender are both injured, meaning the more attack-minded Ilkay Gündogan and Moritz Leitner will probably start in central midfield.
  • Mario Götze could return to the starting line-up with Kevin Großkreutz dropping to the bench.
  • Patrick Helmes is recovering well, but won't be part of the squad just yet.
  • Josué and Christian Träsch compete for a spot in central midfield.
  • Otherwise, there most likely won't be any changes and the reserve players will have to wait for their chances.

Prediction

  • Dortmund won in the Champions League in midweek and a good performance in Munich the weekend before should give them confidence as well. They need a win here to keep pace with the top 2.
  • Wolfsburg have not won in their last three games, but their attacking potential is immense when everyone is 100% fit. They need to find consistency now to get the necessary results.
  • Expect Dortmund to dominate the game from the outset.

  • Schmelzer was >= 6.5 remove the P !!!!

  • unbelievable! please remove the "P - caused a penalty" from Schmelzer to referee stark.

  • player of the game: referee stark! ridiculous decision, leading to a red card for schmelzer and a penalty for wolfsburg. what a punishment for dortmund, who were extremely dominant till minute 36'.
