Borussia Dortmund will be looking to register back-to-back wins in the Bundesliga today when they host Freiburg.
Jurgen Klopp’s side lost their opening game of the season 2-0 to Bayer Leverkusen at home, but recovered to get the better of Augsburg 3-2 on the road in their next match.
That was before the two-week international break, and the 2013 Champions League finalists will be determined to kick off the new month with victory at the Signal Iduna Park.
Dortmund have been hit by injuries as Klopp has only 15 first-team players fit for today’s match. One of the sidelined players is Manchester United’s reported summer transfer target Marco Reus, who picked up an ankle problem while on international duty with Germany.
Freiburg coach Christian Streich has no such major injury concerns and will be encouraging his players to pick up maximum points in Dortmund today.
The hosts will still be the favourites to win the match, and here is how they will line up:
