Dortmund vs Bayern: Lineups
Clash of the German Giants
BVB’s record against the Bavarian giants at home of late has been mixed. Under the leadership of four different managers, they’ve mustered two wins across seven matches which includes three defeats.
Lucien Favre will have at least one big decision to make and that involves their most creative player Jadon Sancho, who hasn’t started in any of their previous three Bundesliga appearances.
The reigning and defending German champions have their own weapon in the former Dortmund marksman Robert Lewandowski – who has netted 18 times past them across 19 games since moving to Bayern in 2013.
There might be just the one change from the Bayern side that started against Frankfurt, with Serge Gnabry pushing to replace Ivan Perisic on the left of an attack which should also include the in-form Thomas Muller, Kingsley Coman and Lewandowski.
Hummels is being tipped to recover in time for Tuesday’s clash, but Marco Reus, Nico Schulz and Dan-Axel Zagadou will again miss out for the home side through injury, while Axel Witsel remains a doubt.
