Three wins and two draws in their last five matches have seen Dortmund lose out on the chance to move closer to Bayern Munich on points. They remain 6 points behind the league leaders and have been excellent at home, winning 11 of their 13 home games this season.

Marco Rose’s men have managed 57 points from 27 outings this season, with 18 wins, three draws, and six losses, scoring 67 goals and conceding 38. Perhaps, without the fitness issues of their star forward Erling Haaland, they would have scored more goals, as the Norwegian remains their top scorer with 16 goals and five assists in only 17 appearances this season.

Borussia Dortmund have several players sidelined, with Marco Reus, Felix Paslack, Youssoufa Moukoko, Marcel Schmelzer, Nico Schulz, Mateu Morey Bauza, Thomas Meunier, and Steffen Tigges all injured.
