Erling Haaland will be hoping to make his full debut as Borussia Dortmund welcome Union Berlin to the Westfalenstadion this weekend.

With ten goals in their opening two games of the rückrunde, things are looking bright for Borussia Dortmund at the moment. On Saturday, they come up against the team that handed them their first loss of the season.

Union Berlin shocked the world by handing Borussia Dortmund a 3-1 defeat when the two sides met in August. It was their first ever Bundesliga win, and they have gone from strength to strength since then.

Many tipped Union Berlin as the favourites to be relegated this season, but Urs Fischer’s side are sitting pretty in 11th place, six points clear of the bottom three. They will be aiming to pull off another shock this weekend, this time at the Westfalenstadion, where Borussia Dortmund are unbeaten so far this season.

Lucien Favre will be able to call upon Dan Axel Zagadou, after he missed the last two games. That leaves only Thomas Delaney on the Borussia Dortmund injury list. Erling Haaland could make his first start for the club, having scored five goals in his two substitute appearances so far.

Here is a look at how Borussia Dortmund could line up against Union Berlin.
