Borussia Dortmund will be looking to avenge last weekend's home thrashing at the hands of Bayer Leverkusen when they travel to face Union Berlin on Sunday in the Bundesliga.

Dortmund's hopes of deposing Bayern Munich at the top of the table suffered a considerable blow when they were downed 5-2 by Leverkusen last time out.

The defeat leaves Marco Rose's side nine points adrift of the Bundesliga leaders and they face a stiff test against a Union Berlin side harbouring realistic hopes of finishing in the Champions League spots.

Here's everything you need to know about the game.

Union Berlin team news

Dortmund are set to be boosted by the return of star striker Erling Haaland after the Norwegian hobbled off with a muscle injury in the win over Hoffenheim last month.

The news coincides with the beginning of Borussia Dortmund's Europa League knockout campaign, with the German side set to welcome Rangers to the Westfalenstadion in midweek.

Mateu Morey, meanwhile, continues to be unavailable for selection for the remainder of the season after he suffered a cruciate ligament injury at the end of the last campaign.


Union Berlin vs Borussia Dortmund head-to-head record

Union Berlin will take solace from last season's meeting between these sides in the German capital, with a late Marvin Friedrich strike powering Union to a 2-1 triumph.

Meanwhile, the reverse fixture between these teams at the Westfalenstadion earlier this season produced a six-goal thriller.

Rose's men raced into a 3-0 lead early in the second half before Union briefly threatened a comeback with two quick-fire goals. However, a late Haaland strike put the contest beyond doubt as Dortmund collected a valuable three points.


Union Berlin vs Borussia Dortmund score prediction

Dortmund cannot afford any more slip-ups with an imperious Bayern Munich side bedded in at the top of the Bundesliga.

A crisis never seems too far away, but it is also a product of Dortmund being measured against a Bayern side with very few holes in their business model.

The return of Haaland will provide the visitors with a short-term boost, but they may face more adversity against a burgeoning Union Berlin outfit this weekend.

Prediction: Union Berlin 2-2 Borussia Dortmund
