Team News

  • Neven Subotic is still injured and will be replaced by Felipe Santana.
  • Sebastian Kehl, Sven Bender and Nuri Sahin compete for the spot alongside Ilkay Gündogan.
  • Kevin Großkreutz could drop to the bench, with Jakub Blaszczykowski returning to the starting line-up.
  • Per Nilsson returns from illness to replace Timmy Simons at centre-back. Simons will switch back to his natural position in defensive midfield.
  • Hiroshi Kiyotake could return to the starting eleven, with Alexander Esswein dropping to the bench.
  • Markus Feulner and Robert Mak compete for the remaining spot in attacking midfield.

Prediction

  • Dortmund won 5-0 away at Bremen last weekend and the team is in great form. They are still 12 points behind Bayern in the table and another home win is an absolute must.
  • Manager Wiesinger and his team earned a draw against Hamburg last weekend. Nürnberg are currently in 15th place, 8 points ahead of Hoffenheim in the relegation play-off spot, which is a comfortable situation for them at this point of the season.
  • Expect Dortmund to dominate the game at home. They are heavy favourites.

  • @kreizi. it means borussia wins at a difference of at least 2 goals.

  • @256tip: what is prediction "-1" ?

  • Dortmund -1

  • @yulva: someday circumstances will force him to, but not a day earlier..

  • Şahin must play, he's greatest

  • I wonder if or when Klopp will try Gündoğan as an attacking midfielder and play Şahin in a deeper role to let him dictate the game.

  • Echte Liebe Dortmund!!

  • see max 2 goals for bvb, too

  • 2-0
