Borussia Dortmund welcome Manchester City to Signal Iduna Park on Tuesday night as they gear up to return to winning ways in the Champions League. The hosts have already guaranteed their qualification to the knockout rounds after recording a 1-1 draw with Sevilla in their last UCL fixture but the visitors will be looking to impose their superiority as they haven’t lost a single match in the group stages so far.

Edin Terzic could set his side up in a 4-2-3-1 formation and he is expected to make a few changes to the starting XI for this home encounter. Youssoufa Moukoko will be allowed to lead the charge against the Sky Blues while Gregor Kobel continues in goal.

Defence

Gregor Kobel will continue to operate in goal for Borussia Dortmund after keeping a clean sheet in his last outing. Niklas Sule will once again function alongside Nico Schlotterbeck at the centre of Dortmund’s defence as they focus on stopping Man City from scoring one against them.

Felix Passlack 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.

Thomas Meunier and Marius Wolf remain sidelined so Mats Hummels will provide cover for the backline as he takes a spot on the bench.

Midfield

Jude Bellingham and Emre Can could play as the holding midfielders as they hope to distribute possession efficiently and dominate at the centre of the park. Donyell Malen could feature on the left flank while Karim Adeyemi looks to put in a good performance on the right wing.

Julian Brandt 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.

Giovanni Reyna and Thorgan Hazard will have to settle for a spot on the bench as they look to impress in the second half if required.

Attack

As mentined earlier, Youssoufa Moukoko 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.

Anthony Modeste 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.
