Team News

  • Roel Brouwers will most likely remain on the bench, with Martin Stranzl and Tony Jantschke having performed well in the last game.
  • Patrick Hermann is suspended for one game, meaning manager Favre could switch to a 4-4-2 again.
  • Lukas Rupp and Mike Hanke compete for a spot in the starting line-up.
  • Sven Bender and Sebastian Kehl could start in central midfield, allowing Ilkay Gündogan to play in a more advanced role.
  • In Robert Lewandowski and Julian Schieber, both of Dortmund's strikers are suspended, meaning either Mario Götze or Marco Reus could start up front.
  • The front four are likely to switch positions more often during this game, with no natural striker on the pitch.

Prediction

  • Gladbach have only won one point from their last three games and the team needs to improve their organisation again. It remains to be seen how tired some players will be after another difficult Europa League trip.
  • Dortmund have been in strong form in the last few weeks and the team has recovered well from their surprising home defeat against Hamburg two weeks ago. It will be interesting to see how the team will do without a natural striker on the pitch.
  • Expect Dortmund to dominate the game from the start.
