Borussia Dortmund face their first major test of the Edin Terzic era on Saturday, as they make the trip to RB Leipzig for a massive six-pointer.

Borussia Dortmund are coming off a solid 2-0 win against Wolfsburg last weekend and will be looking to build on that as they take on RB Leipzig this Saturday. It will be a great test for Dortmund as they aim to halve the gap to Leipzig. Julian Nagelsmann’s side are currently 6 points ahead of the Black and Yellows. And Dortmund will view this as a game they cannot afford to lose.

Dortmund will again be without Thorgan Hazard, Jude Bellingham and Marcel Schmelzer, with the trio recovering from their respective injuries. Youssoufa Moukoko has returned to team training, but Edin Terzic was not able to confirm whether he would be in the squad or not at Thursday’s press conference.

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

Goalkeeper: Roman Bürki

Roman Bürki will be in goal on Saturday, and Borussia Dortmund will need a top performance from their keeper as he is sure to be tested from Leipzig’s quality forwards. Bürki’s poor distribution play has come into focus in recent weeks, and he will no doubt have to improve on that.
