Team News

  • Lukasz Piszczek returns from injury to start at right-back.
  • Jeremy Toljan could help out at left-back, with Marcel Schmelzer and Raphael Guerreiro both injured.
  • Nuri Sahin and Gonzalo Castro provide further options in central midfield.
  • Robin Knoche could come in at centre-back, if Jeffrey Bruma fails to recover from a minor injury in time.
  • Marcel Tisserand and Gian-Luca Itter compete for the spot at left-back.
  • Divock Origi should start up front after Mario Gomez left the club for Stuttagrt this month.


  • Dortmund headed into the winter break with back-to-back wins in manager Peter Stöger's first two Bundesliga games in charge. Despite a very poor run of form under former manager Peter Bosz, they sit in a strong position to qualify for the Champions League again and boast the league's most prolific attack.
  • Wolfsburg have suffered one defeat less than Dortmund this season, but 10 draws from their first 17 matches has cost them a higher position in the table. They need to distance themselves from the relegation zone now, rather than thinking about the European places.
  • Expect Dortmund to try to put pressure on the visitors from the outset.
