Borussia Dortmund 

Borussia Dortmund will look to make it four wins in four competitive games this season when they welcome Werder Bremen to the Westfalenstadion this Saturday.

The Bundesliga giants come into this match on the back of a 3-1 win over Freiburg. The result which saw them come from a goal down in the first half makes them along with Bayern Munich the only side yet to drop points in this Bundesliga campaign (W2). 

With former interim coach Edin Terzić at the helm, the Back and Yellow look like they are a genuine force who are going to challenge serial winners Bayern Munich for the title this year. 

The young coach became BVB’s first manager to preside over nine consecutive Bundesliga wins when his side won against Freiburg last time out and he will hope for a tenth win in a row on Saturday.

With all three goalscorers coming from the bench in their last match–the first time three substitutes have scored for BVB in one Bundesliga game–Dortmund will hope that this impressive squad depth can help them go the distance this season.

Terzic recently stated that his team “will give everything for success”, and so he will be willing to back up that claim by picking up another win that will keep them at the toes of Bayern Munich who have set the pace early at the top of the table.

Possible Borussia Dortmund starting line-up

Gregor Kobel; Thomas Meunier, Mats Hummels, Nico Schlotterbeck, Raphael Guerreiro; Mahmoud Dahoud, Jude Bellingham; Donyell Malen, Marco Reus; Thorgan Hazard, Anthony Modeste.

Injured: Karim Adeyemi, Sebastian Haller, Niklas Sule

Doubtful: Giovanni Reyna

Suspended: None


Werder Bremen will look to get their first win of the season when they travel to Signal Iduna Park this Saturday.

The visitors have started their season with a pair of 2-2 draws following their promotion last season. Their last outing was against Stuttgart, taking their run of top-flight games without triumph to 12 games – including a 4-1 defeat to BVB here from their 2020/21 campaign.

That winless run is the longest run from any team currently in the league and is fast approaching Bremen’s club-record 14-game Bundesliga winless streak from the 2017/18 season.

And so they will come into this game desperate to get a win and end a miserable form that is threatening to send them back to the lower division after just one season in the top flight.

Meanwhile, they are unbeaten in their last five road trips in all competitions (W3, D2), and can lean on an impressive goal-scoring record, having netted in each of the 21 league games under Ole Werner’s stewardship. 

This could come in handy against a Dortmund side that has failed to keep a home shutout against Bremen since 2013/14, in a head-to-head that often produces plenty of goals.

Possible Bremen starting line-up

Jiri Pavlenka; Amos Pieper, Milos Veljkovic, Marco Friedl; Mitchell Weiser, Leonardo Bittencourt, Christian Gross, Jens Stage, Anthony Jung; Niclas Füllkrug, Marvin Ducksch

Injured: Jean-Manuel Mbom

Doubtful: Amos Pieper

Suspended: None
