The same procedure as every week
Borussia Dortmund are where the have been two weeks ago. With a horrible performance the black-yellow ones lost their away match in Berlin 0-1. Now the mighty wolves of VfL Wolfsburg are visiting Westfalenstadion.
Some supporters had slight hopes that the 1-0 win against TSG Hoffenheim at home would be a turning point. That win was more than deserved but even then BVB wasted a couple of chances. So this last weekend the travel to Berlin was supposed to be the start of a at least small winning spree. But as everyone knows, things became miserable again when a mediocre Hertha BSC side was able to beat us 1-0. Not only that we made some big mistakes in defence, for most of the match we were unable to create any chances. In the last 20 minutes things changed a little bit but even then every single chance was wasted.
So we are back at the bottom of the table on spot 16. And with upcoming opponent VfL Wolfsburg we won't have an easy task. Wolfsburg are on a real high with being second in the table only topped by reigning champions Bayern Munich. Players like midfield wizard Kevin De Bruyne and former Borussia Dortmund player Ivan Perisic helped the Lower-Saxony club to storm past big clubs like Bayer Leverkusen an Sch*lke 04.
Jürgen Klopp won't do any change in defence, leaving world cup winning goalie Roman Weidenfeller on the bench again. So Mitch Langerak will play behind a flat four consisting of Piszczek, Subotic, Hummels and Schmelzer. Bender and Kehl might start in holding midfield while Ilkay Gündogan will probably again take the central midfield position. Aubameyang and either Blaszczykowski or Großkreutz might start on the wings. Up front Immobile might start again, another option would be Ramos.
