Two weeks break are behind Borussia Dortmund, the staff situation had already relaxed a little before. At the Remis in Cologne, Manuel Akanji, Mats Hummels, Raphael Guerreiro and Dan-Axel Zagadou had returned to their residue now all have caught up – Guerreiro and Akanji also got game practice in their national teams and could record more rhythm. Captain Marco Reus will be back after three misses. For Youssoufa Moukoko, it will be closely closely after his muscle faser.
Despite the recent failures of Nico Schulz and Felix Passlack (both muscular problems), Coach Marco Rose has again made much more opportunities with RB Leipzig on Saturday (18.30, Live! At Marco Reus), if until the lot of short-term problems.
Some will depend on the basic order. Because of a susceptibility to the wings, which also led to the counterpart by the FC, Rose and his team had changed from a four-seater during the game in Cologne and moved to the hosts with the hosts. Against the Saxons, which can produce a lot of pressure with three internal defenders and the dangerous wings, a continuation of the triple chain is possible, then all foresight in Cologne with Emre Can, Hummels and Akanji.
Another advantage: On the left, Guerreiro would have more opportunities to leaving his qualities in the game forward, right could run without the injured passport paint and Thomas Meunier (tendon tear) an eetatical offensive such as Thorgan Hazard or the last strong Marius Wolf.
But as possible, however, is a four-chain, in which then probably Akanji and Hummels would play in the middle. Allrounder CAN could thus lead as a right defender, which could be dropped in the threesome but next to the two, while Guerreiro stands higher.
