Borussia Dortmund are simply on a roll! Coming on the back of four successive wins, Thomas Tuchel’s men will travel to the Olympiastadion as they seek to keep their good form intact. The Black and Yellows registered a 4:0 win over Benfica in midweek to go through to the next round of the UEFA Champions League.
Predicted 3-4-3 Borussia Dortmund Lineup To Keep The Winning Run Going Vs Hertha BSC
Roman Burki: Arguably having the best time in his Dortmund career so far. The Swiss goalkeeper has managed to muster three clean sheets in his last four competitive outings. His performance will be crucial this week against the sharp attacking Hertha side.
Lukasz Piszczek: Tuchel’s decision of shifting Piszczek into a centre back has been proving to be a great one for Borussia Dortmund so far. The veteran Polish defender has been solid ever since he took over the role of right centre back.
Sokratis: Has been the main pillar of his side’s defensive work in the past few weeks. On his day, the Greek International is certainly one of the best defenders in the world. It will be up to him to mark the dangerous Vedad Ibisevic.
Marc Bartra: The former Barcelona man has been excellent in the last three games. Not just defensively but his overall contribution in Dortmund’s buildup game has been remarkable. He will play a crucial role this weekend as well.
Erik Durm: Is in a sizzling run of form down the right flank. The 24-year old took over the place of Lukasz Piszczek as the right wingback and so far, he has been flawless. Durm comes in handy, especially with his runs in behind the defence.
Julian Weigl: The German International will be put to test against this Hertha side, who boast a killer midfielder with the likes of Vladimir Darida and Per Skjelbred taking down the opposition very quickly. The 21-year-old will need to be calm and composed in order to succeed in the middle.
Gonzalo Castro: Pulled the strings in midweek’s fixture against Benfica. The former Leverkusen player is always a handy player when it comes to some elegant play on the edge of the penalty box.
Marcel Schmelzer: Will lead his team on the afternoon, starting as a left wingback. The former German International was faultless against Benfica, providing a series of dangerous crosses into the middle. However, he might experience a tough time against the quick attacking side of Pal Dardai.
Ousmane Dembele: He has been arguably Borussia Dortmund’s best player of the season. The young French international will be undeniably important against Hertha. His individual qualities on the ball make him the main man for the Dortmund attack.
Christian Pulisic: His performance in midweek was completely overshadowed due to Aubameyang’s hattrick. The American international also found the back of the net, therefore claiming the record of being the youngest goalscorer for Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.
Pierre-Emerick Aubemeyang: After having a little rough patch, the Gabonese international has been on fire in the past few games. He is currently on the back of scoring five goals in his last two competitive games. Aubameyang will look to extend his scoring tally for the season this weekend.
