Picking the Best Potential Borussia Dortmund Lineup to Face Werder Bremen on Saturday

Borussia Dortmund will host Werder Bremen on matchday 34 of the Bundesliga at the Westfalenstadion, in the final game of the season. 

Dortmund are able to secure Champions League football outright with three points, although Bremen will be fighting for their place in the Europa League next season.

Goalkeeper

  • Bürki

The ex-Freiburg stopper will likely start in between the sticks for Dortmund as there is still a lot on the line for Thomas Tuchel.

Defence

  • Piszczek

  • Bartra

  • Schmelzer

An incredible start for former Barcelona defender Marc Bartra is expected as the Spaniard returned to training earlier this month. Bartra returned to the squad as an unused substitute when Dortmund drew 1-1 with Augsburg on matchday 33.

Tuchel will pick his tried and trust defenders for this game with Łukasz Piszczek, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Marcel Schmelzer set to join Bartra in Dortmund’s back line.

Midfield

  • Castro

  • Kagawa

  • Sahin

The midfield trio will likely consist of Gonzalo Castro, Nuri Şahin and Shinji Kagawa. Injuries to Julian Weigl (fractured ankle) and the long-term absence of Mario Götze (metabolic illness) have left Thomas Tuchel with limited midfield options. 

We could also see Raphaël Guerreiro in contention for a starting place. The natural full back has been deployed all over the pitch this season for Dortmund, with some notable performance as a central midfielder.

Forwards

  • Dembélé

  • Aubameyang

  • Reus

An attacking three of Ousmane Dembélé, Marco Reus and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is enough to strike fear into the best defences in the world. 

They’ve scored a combined 40 Bundesliga goals this season and will be looking to add to their tally against a Werder Bremen side who’s goals conceded tally (60) is the second worst in the league, behind only relegation-threatened Hamburg (61).
