Picking the Best Potential Borussia Dortmund Lineup to Face Wolfsburg

​Borussia Dortmund resume their domestic campaign with the visit of Wolfsburg to the Signal Iduna Park on Sunday. 


Despite sitting third in the league, der BVB are on of four teams to accumulate 28 points in the Hinrunde and therefore a win against die Wölfe is a must.


Here is the best potential lineup for the match:

Goalkeeper

  • Bürki

​Swiss international Roman Bürki is set to continue in goal for ​Dortmund, with the ex-Freiburg having already played 16 of Dortmund's 17 ​Bundesliga games so far this season.

Defence

  • Piszczek
    Piszczek26
  • Sokratis

  • Toprak

  • Toljan

​Lukasz Piszczek is set to return on Sunday, after the Polish international sat out the last few months of 2017 through injury.


Dortmund face a slight crisis at left-back with both Marcel Schmelzer and Raphael Guerreiro sidelined with minor injuries. Ex-Hoffenheim man Jeremy Toljan is likely to fill in at left-back, a position that he has already played in for Dortmund this season.

Midfield

  • Kagawa
    Kagawa23
  • Sahin
    Sahin8
  • Götze
    Götze10

​Like so many of the Dortmund players, Mario Götze is likely to return on Sunday. The German sat out the final month 2017 after he picked up an injury in the remarkable 4-4 draw against ​Schalke 04 back in November.


Shinji Kagawa has enjoyed his time under new manager Peter Stöger, and the Japan international is set to continue at the heart of the midfield alongside Turk Nuri Sahin.

Forwards

  • Yarmolenko
    Yarmolenko9
  • Aubameyang
    Aubameyang17
  • Pulisic
    Pulisic22

​For many Dortmund fans, American Christian Pulisic was the best player for die Schwarze-Gelbe in the Hinrunde. 


The USA international continues to impress with every game in which he plays in, and following a minor knock during the clubs training camp in Marbella, Pulisic is expected to be fit for the game against Wolfsburg on Sunday.
