Team News

  • Clemens Fritz returns to his position in central midfield, with Lukas Schmitz filling in at left-back.
  • Aaron Hunt could switch to the right wing, with Marko Arnautovic suspended for one game.
  • Manager Schaaf will most likely field a 4-2-3-1 system, with Nils Petersen as a lone striker.
  • Neven Subotic is injured again and will be replaced by Felipe Santana.
  • Sebastian Kehl and Sven Bender compete for the spot alongside Ilkay Gündogan, with the returning Nuri Sahin most likely starting on the bench.
  • Moritz Leitner and Kevin Großkreutz are the first options from the bench, should manager Klopp make any other changes to his first eleven.

Prediction

  • Bremen had a difficult first half of the season. They need to find consistency now to fulfill their potential more often than in the past.
  • Dortmund are already twelve points behind Bayern in the table. A third defence of their title seems to be very unlikely at the moment, but they will try everything to get a good start to the "Rückrunde".
  • Expect this to be an open game with several chances for both sides.

  • @flipoop 0:5.. very open...

  • Mielitz 5.3 lol

  • Hummels is a Centre Back Playmaker - unbelievable !

  • mario gotze 1 gol and 1 assist

  • @FerretingJules Why does it depend on Kuba? Klopp likes to play in a 4-2-3-1, and Şahin almost always played in the double pivot. Considering that a double pivot needs a vertical player alongside a playmaker, Şahin and Gündoğan will most likely be interchangeable.

  • i think sahin will not be seen in the 1st eleven, but it depends on Kuba...if he cannot play, i guess sahin will debut. Dortmund is strong in away games and bremen against equal teams (leverkusen) really good in receiving goals...and who should score for bremen? arnautovic, füllkrug and bargfrede are out...for me it's a 1-2 at least for dortmund.

  • I can see this being a very open game and am hoping Bremen get the win. I think this will be a surprise result 3-2 to Bremen!!

  • I'm eager to watch Sahin play on this one, but it might be too early to see him subbed in if the match remains a close one up to the end.

  • Echte Liebe Dortmund! Anything is possible!
