Borussia Dortmund continue their quest for major silverware when they host Paderborn in the DFB-Pokal on Tuesday at 7:45pm (UK time).
Dortmund haven’t delivered a major trophy since winning this competition back in 2017 but are well-placed to at least make the fourth round as they come up against a middling 2. Bundesliga side in the form of Paderborn.

Dortmund vs Paderborn build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
It hasn’t been plain sailing for Dortmund who, since the start of December, have won just six of their 13 games across all competitions, slipping to sixth in the Bundesliga table in the process.
But Erdin Terzic’s side did beat Augsburg 3-1 on Saturday to end a run of three games without a win and will be confident of progressing to the DFB-Pokal quarter-finals against second-tier opposition.
Paderborn have been steady since their relegation from the top-flight last season, sitting ninth in the 2. Bundesliga, although they are already 10 points adrift of the promotion playoff spot.
Steffen Baumgart’s side lost 6-1 to Borussia Dortmund in their previous meeting last season and the German tactician is likely to have low expectations again this time around.
- Dortmund (vs Augsburg): Hitz; Morey, Akanji, Hummels, Guerreiro; Brandt, Delaney; Sancho, Reus, Reyna; Haaland.
- Paderborn (vs Hamburg): Zingerle; Ananou, Hunemeier, Schonlau, Collins; Schallenberg, Thalhammer; Fuhrich, Srbeny, Antwi-Adjei; Michel.
Thorgan Hazard, Thomas Meunier, Dan-Axel Zagadou, Marcel Schmelzer, Roman Bürki and Axel Witsel are all still sidelined for Dortmund. Terzic is likely to rotate in order to keep his squad fresh for an intense second half of the Bundesliga season.
Paderborn have no fresh injury concerns following their defeat to Hamburg last time out, but Johannes Dörfler could return to the starting XI over Freddy Ananou.

Player to watch: Giovanni Reyna (Borussia Dortmund)
One player in need of a pick-me-up in this cup clash is Dortmund creative dynamo, Giovanni Reyna.
The American teenager started the season like a house on fire, grabbing two goals and four assists across his first seven appearances in all competitions, while overall, he has four goals and five assists in 27 appearances. But Reyna hasn’t scored or assisted a single goal in his last eight outings and, given Dortmund’s struggles for consistency, Terzic desperately needs the US international back on form.
At his best, Reyna is an incredible creative talent, able to thread the ball through the eye of a needle with precise and varied passing, while he is a nightmare to stop once he’s isolated a defender in a one-on-one duel. Whether it’s playing behind the striker as a No.10 or floating inside from the left flank, Reyna has the potential to be the glue which holds this Dortmund side together.
The 18-year-old has started both of Dortmund’s DFB-Pokal games so far this season, getting on the scoresheet in a 5-0 first-round win over MSV Duisburg. Reyna could use this tie against lower league opposition as a springboard into the second half of the season.
