It’s the Erling Haaland derby! Will the former Dortmund man come back to haunt his old club? If his recent records suggest anything, there is a highly likely chance he could certainly do so.

Dortmund are no mugs in Europe though, they showed their class in the opener against FC Kopenhavn – emerging 3 – 0 winners thanks to goals from Raphael Guerreiro, Marco Reus and Jude Bellingham.

Dortmund have a plethora of injuries in their roster, including a genuine crisis in the striker department with Donyell Malen, Karim Adeyemi and Sebastien Haller all out. They are also joined in the medical tent by Gregor Kobel, Jamie Bynoe-Gittens, Mahmoud Dahoud, Mateu Morey and Thorgan Hazard.
