Mats Hummels Germany

Here is how Schalke and Borussia Dortmund will line up for their Bundesliga clash, featuring Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and long-term Manchester United target Mats Hummels, who makes his first start of the season after regaining full fitness.

Borussia Dortmund will be looking to return to winning ways this afternoon when they take on Schalke in the Bundesliga away from home.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have made a disappointing start to the 2014-15 season and are struggling for points at the moment.

Dortmund are currently eighth in the league table with seven points from five matches, four points behind leaders Bayern Munich.

The visitors will head into the game on the back of a 2-2 draw with VfB Stuttgart at the Signal Iduna Park and will be determined to pick up all three points against their Ruhr Valley rivals in the derby today.

Schalke are also struggling for points at the moment, having picked up just five from as many matches, and are currently 13th in the standings.

It promises to be a very exciting match at the Veltins-Arena in Gelsenkirchen, and here is how Dortmund and Schalke will line up:
