Borussia Dortmund welcome Sevilla to Signal Iduna Park on Tuesday night as they gear up for what looks like an important fixture in Group G of the Champions League. The hosts could guarantee their qualification to the Knockout rounds with a win but the visitors know that anything less than a victory would end their hopes of finishing in second.
Dortmund have recorded an emphatic 4-1 win away at Sevilla in the reverse fixture and they will be hoping to produce a similar result. Edin Terzic could set his side up in a 4-2-3-1 formation allowing Anthony Modeste to lead the charge while backup goalkeeper Alexander Meyer continues in goal.
4-2-3-1 Borussia Dortmund Predicted XI Vs Sevilla
Alexander Meyer will continue to operate in goal for Borussia Dortmund despite conceding two versus Bayern in the last outing. Niklas Sule will once again function alongside Nico Schlotterbeck at the centre of Dortmund’s defence as they focus on stopping Sevilla from scoring one against them.
Marius Wolf will start as the right-back while Raphael Guerreiro tries to give a good account of himself on the other side as the left-back. Both of them will need to get forward and make some overlapping runs out on the wide areas to stretch the opposition.
Salih Ozcan and Emre Can could play as the holding midfielders as they hope to distribute possession efficiently and dominate at the centre of the park. Julian Brandt could feature on the left flank while Karim Adeyemi looks to put in a good performance on the right wing.
Jude Bellingham will play in the number ten position as the attacking midfielder with his main focus being on creating some decent chances in front of the goal. He is in a good run of form at the moment and would be an influential presence for Dortmund in the final third.
Donyell Malen and Thorgan Hazard will have to settle for a spot on the bench as they look to impress in the second half if required.
Anthony Modeste will lead the charge for the German giants on the attacking third of the field. He would be hoping to put his name on the scoresheet again and produce an influential display similar to his last outing.
Youssoufa Moukoko will be named on the bench but might come to influence the game in the final quarter of the match if Dortmund are in need of a goal by then.
