Borussia Dortmund will look to keep their Bundesliga top-four aspirations alive when they welcome Union Berlin to the Westfalenstadion on Wednesday at 7.30pm (UK time).

BVB remain outside the Champions League qualification places but are currently on a tear of back-to-back wins, with interim incumbent Edin Terzic looking to close the four-point gap currently separating his side from Eintracht Frankfurt in fourth.

Borussia Dortmund vs Union Berlin build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:

It’s been a chaotic season for BVB, who relieved Lucien Favre of his duties in December, reached the Champions League quarter-finals under a former West Ham coach, and are now fighting tooth and nail to save their domestic campaign by sneaking into the top four, but Union Berlin have proven a difficult opponent to face this term.

The capital club currently sit eighth in the table and could go just three points behind BVB with a win, an outcome certainly not beyond the realms of possibility given Urs Fischer’s side went unbeaten against Bayern Munich this season, most recently drawing 1-1 with the Bavarian behemoth earlier this month.

  • Borussia Dortmund (vs Werder Bremen): Hitz; Morey, Akanji, Hummels, Guerreiro; Dahoud, Reyna, Bellingham, Brandt, Reus; Haaland.
  • Union Berlin (vs Stuttgart): Luthe; Friedrich, Knoche, Schlotterbeck; Trimmel, Lenz, Andrich, Promel, Gentner; Musa, Kruse.

Axel Witsel and Marcel Schmelzer remain long-term absentees for the hosts, while Jadon Sancho and Thomas Delaney are nearing returns but this match may have come too soon for the convalescing duo to make the matchday squad. Berlin meanwhile are expected to be without Anthony Ujah, Sheraldo Becker, Niko Giesselmann and Leon Dajaku, as well as Liverpool loanee Taiwo Awoniyi.

Players to watch:

  • Borussia Dortmund: In what has been an otherwise difficult campaign for BVB there have been green shoots of optimism, chiefly the rapid emergence of teenage wunderkind Jude Bellingham, who has firmly consolidated his status as a first-team regular and looks destined to reach the stratospheric heights expected of him in Birmingham. The 17-year-old England international has made a seamless transition from Championship football to the German top flight, which hugely underpins the maturity of the tyro. He hasn’t allowed the illustrious lights of Bundesliga football to hinder his progress or faze him from showcasing his innate talents. An elegant tempo-setter, the burgeoning Brummie has brought a rhythmic element to BVB’s play, occupying dangerous positions to collect the ball, before executing well-weighted passes to his teammates. The fluidity of his movement and slickness of his play has just given Dortmund an extra edge these past few months, and Union Berlin could have trouble containing the confident youngster.
  • Union Berlin: From one end of the spectrum to the other; where Dortmund have relied on the brilliance of their fledgling stars, namely the aforementioned Bellingham, Erling Haaland and Jadon Sancho (when fit), Berlin have taken a different approach. Max Kruse, now 33, is very much in his footballing dotage years, but the 14-capped Germany international is certainly showing few discernible traces of fatigue in his game, with the attacking stalwart Die Eisernen’s leading Bundesliga scoring this term with 10 goals, while he has also registered five assists, the second highest number at the club. If Berlin are to travel to the Ruhr district and walk away with points on the board, then it will be up to the experience and pedigree of Kruse to unsettle the host’s young guns and expose any chinks in Terzic’s armour.
