Picking the Best Potential Borussia Dortmund Lineup to Face Eintracht Frankfurt on Sunday

​Borussia Dortmund return to domestic action this weekend, as Peter Stoger's side host an Eintracht Frankfurt side going well this season.


With both sides locked level in 3rd place with 42 points, a win for either side is crucial as the race for a Champions League place hots up.


​Dortmund are looking to avenge their 2-1 Europa League defeat against Red Bull Salzburg and will be desperate to secure all three points on Sunday.


Here's who the manager could select for the game. 

Goalkeeper

  • Bürki

​Roman Burki will retain his place in goal. 

Defence

  • Sokratis

  • Toprak

  • Schmelzer

​With several injuries in defence for Peter Stoger to contend with, Gonzalo Castro will continue as a makeshift right-back. 


The back four is likely to remain the same from their Europa League game on Thursday, meaning Sokratis and Omer Toprak will continue at centre-back, while Marcel Schmelzer will be the left-back. 

Midfield

  • Weigl

  • Sahin

  • Pulisic

  • Götze

  • Reus

​Peter Stoger could make a couple of changes in midfield from the game on Thursday.


Nuri Sahin could come in for Mahmoud Dahoud to partner Julian Weigl in the centre of midfield, while Christian Pulisic could possibly replace Andre Schurlle on the right hand hand side, with Mario Gotze and Marco Reus retaining their places from midweek. 

Forwards

  • Batshuayi

Chelsea loanee Michy Batshuayi will continue as Dortmund's main striker, hoping to find his scoring touch once again.


The Belgium international is without a goal in his last five appearances for BVB and would love to end his goal drought in a game with serious Champions League implications for both sides.
