Borussia Dortmund are coming off of a DFB Pokal quarterfinal win versus Borussia Monchengladbach in midweek.

Although Roman Burki is back in the team following an injury, Marwin Hitz will remain in goal. Haaland should be paired with Giovanni Reyna in attack with Reus and Jadon Sancho -- who scored in the cup on Tuesday night -- playing behind them.

Corentin Tolisso is ruled out with a thigh muscle injury. Thomas Mueller is back from a positive COVID-19 test and will play in attack in support of Robert Lewandowski.
