Borussia Dortmund host Hertha Berlin at the Signal Iduna Park on Sunday afternoon as they look to go level points with Bayern Munich. Kick-off is 17:30 local time.
After BVB’s 1-0 win against Chelsea in the Champions League, Edin Terzic is expected to make a couple of changes. Kicker suggest that Julian Ryerson could come in for Marius Wolf at right-back, whilst Marco Reus will replace Salih Özcan, reverting back to a 4-2-3-1.
Expect Terzic to stick with the double-pivot of Emre Can and Jude Bellingham, whilst Sébastien Haller is expected to keep his place with Youssoufa Moukoko sidelined for a reported six weeks.
During his pre-match press conference, Terzic suggested that Donyell Malen is an option to lead Borussia Dortmund’s attack after being ousted out of his left-forward role in place of Karim Adeyemi, who has now scored in three successive games.
Predicted Borussia Dortmund XI vs Hertha Berlin
Gregor Kobel – Julian Ryerson, Niklas Süle, Nico Schlotterbeck, Raphaël Guerreiro – Emre Can, Jude Bellingham – Julian Brandt, Marco Reus, Karim Adeyemi – Sébastien Haller.
