Making their Bundesliga return after putting in what was a stunning Champions League display in midweek, Borussia Dortmund will make the trip to relegation scrappers Werder Bremen on Saturday afternoon.
Picking up what could be a crucial 2-1 win over reigning French champions PSG on Tuesday night and securing back-to-back victories since their DFP Pokal defeat in Bremen earlier in the month, Lucien Farve’s men have continued on what has been a free-scoring run.
On the flip side, while Saturday’s hosts may have picked up a shock 3-2 win over BVB on cup duties three weeks ago, Die Werderaner still find themselves firmly at the heart of a relegation battle after what has been woeful Bundesliga campaign.
Hit with a 3-0 hammering away at title contenders RB Leipzig last week, the Green and Whites have lost their last four top-flight matches on the bounce and the mood around the Weserstadion remains incredibly fragile.

Where now for Bremen?
While Bremen should have been boosted by their shock 3-2 victory against BVB in the DFP Pokal earlier in the month, Florian Kohfeldt’s men came crashing back down to earth last weekend.
Hit with a 3-0 defeat against RB Leipzig and now losing their last four Bundesliga matches on the bounce, Die Werderaner find themselves sat five points adrift of safety.
With the mood in their camp at the lowest it has been in recent memory and still dealing with some rather glaring issues at the back, there is no doubt that fans around the Weserstadion will have a growing headache over their side’s recent struggles in the final third.
Drawing a blank in their defeat on the road last weekend, Saturday’s hosts have now failed to record a goal in back-to-back Bundesliga appearances and have landed just a sole strike in almost 400 minutes of action.

Who can stop Haaland?
Shocking many across Europe with what was another stunning display in their 2-1 win against PSG on Tuesday night, Dortmund have continued to cement their spot as one of the most exciting teams on the continent.
With a growing reputation for their lethal displays in the final third and Lucien Farve’s men sitting just four points adrift of top spot, one man to certainly keep an eye out for this weekend will be striking sensation, Erling Haaland.
Extending on his remarkable Champions League run in midweek after bagging a brace against the Ligue 1 champions, the former RB Salzburg starlet has recorded 10 goals in Europe this season and has taken the Bundesliga by storm following his January switch.
Accompanied by the red-hot Jadon Sancho, the Danish marksman has scored three goals in back-to-back appearances and has recorded a staggering 11 strikes in just his first seven matches in rural Germany.
Also scoring what turned out to be a consolation strike in Bremen earlier in the month, you might be interested to know that Haaland can be found at 3/5 with William Hill to extend on that tally this weekend.
