There are plenty of expectations from Borussia Dortmund this season, due to the immense season they had last time around and having invested well in the squad this summer, but a big part of the hopefulness around Dortmund has been driven by the way they started this season.
Although Lucien Favre's side have been leaky at the back, they have been threatening in attack at every minute, and will once again look to go full throttle against Werder and get the three points.
The visitors have experienced a mixed season so far, and their starting XI has had to be shuffled around because of injuries and suspensions. Their top scorer with three goals, Yuya Osako, will miss this game, and they'll have to look to the likes of Milot Rashica and the young American Josh Sargent to fill those boots.

The English winger has just about picked up from where he left off last season. He has scored or assisted a goal in every league game for Dortmund this season. So far, he has three goals to his name, and tops the league in assists, having registered four so far. Whatever Werder throw at this Dortmund team, it seems very likely that Sancho will provide once again for Lucien Favre's side.
There's plenty of attacking talent in this Werder Bremen side, but it's Davy Klaassen who makes them tick. Capable of contributing in defense as well as going forward, the Dutch international is key to Werder's gameplan, evident from the fact that he's played every minute of every game for them so far this season.
