The expected BVB line-up against RB Leipzig

After the comfortable 3-0 home win in the first Champions League group game against Copenhagen, Borussia Dortmund continues in the Bundesliga with a difficult away game. On Saturday afternoon (kick-off 3:30 p.m.) the black and yellow are guests at RB Leipzig. There will also be a reunion with Marco Rose in the trade fair city.

We take a look at the 6th Bundesliga matchday and the three hottest topics of the weekend: Rose's debut for Leipzig against the former club, the "little Revierderby" at Schalke and the shaky coaching chairs in the league.

Around three and a half months after leaving BVB, the 45-year-old took over the coaching position with the Red Bulls. On Thursday, the native of Leipzig was presented as the successor to Domenico Tedesco, who had to pack his bags after the 4-1 defeat against Shakhtar Donetsk. "I'm happy that Marco is back in the Bundesliga. Neither of us expected that we'd see each other again so soon," said Edin Terzic at the matchday press conference. Due to the change of coach at the cup winners, however, the preparation for the away game is also a little more difficult. "I watched the videos of their games before the change became official. That changes things a bit," explained the BVB coach.

After three competitive wins in a row without conceding a goal, Terzic sees his team on a very good path, "which we want to build on," said the Rose successor. "We often managed to defend the zero, to defend compactly as a whole team, to allow the opponent few chances to score," praised the trainer. Terzic was also very satisfied with his offensive, which has created "many and clear chances to score" in the last few games.

The BVB hospital is currently home to Sebastien Haller (testicular tumor), Mo Dahoud (shoulder surgery), Gregor Kobel (torn muscle), Mateu Morey (knee surgery), Jamie Bynoe-Gittens (shoulder injury) and Thorgan Hazard (muscular problems/strain). ) again. Hazard's investigations "revealed that it's nothing serious," Terzic said. "But I'm sure it will be tight for Saturday."

There are also question marks over Karim Adeyemi (after a toe injury) and Donyell Malen (after a muscular problem), who were able to complete at least part of the team training on Thursday. "But it's also about the day after, how they reacted and whether they remain pain-free," said the head coach. "We'll have to wait and see and will make a decision at short notice."

TW: Alexander Meyer - The 31-year-old newcomer made his debut in the premier class and will also stand between the posts in Leipzig for the injured Kobel.RV: Thomas Meunier - Meunier is expected to play at right-back.IV: Mats Hummels - conceivable is that Niklas Süle has to vacate his place for the world champion despite a good performance against Copenhagen.IV: Nico Schlotterbeck - The national player has his place in the center of defense secure.LV: Raphael Guerreiro - The left-back scored his second goal of the season on Tuesday evening.ZM: Jude Bellingham - The youngster was also successful against Copenhagen and scored to make it 3-0.ZM: Salih Özcan - In addition to Bellingham, the newcomer from Cologne has played well.RA: Marius Wolf - Da Gio Reyna, who recently had to pause again and again and against Copenhagen has completed almost 70 minutes, will probably first sit on the bench, Wolf should slip into the starting XI for Hazard. OM: Marco Reus - The tenth position is reserved for the captain.LA: Julian Brandt - If Wolf starts as a right winger, the ex-Leverkusen player switches to the left wing.MS: Anthony Modeste - The 34-year-old is back in the center of attack.

In principle, Terzic also has the option of switching to a three-man defense on the defensive. After the recent successes, however, there is a lot to be said for the 4-2-3-1 system.
