We reckon that Dortmund might utilise a 4-5-1 system, going with Gregor Kobel, Marius Wolf, Niklas Suele, Mats Hummels, Julian Ryerson, Donyell Malen, Julian Brandt, Emre Can, Raphael Guerreiro, Karim Adeyemi and Sebastien Haller.
In this match, Borussia Dortmund will, in all probability, dominate possession and create several successful chances.

We’re predicting a fairly comfortable 1-3 margin for Borussia Dortmund by the conclusion of the game.
