Forwards: Karim Adeyemi, Donyell Malen, Anthony Modeste

The international break came at the perfect time for Karim Adeyemi and Donyell Malen, as it gave the duo the chance to get back to full fitness and find some rhythm following their recent injury struggles.

It has been a stop-start season so far for both Adeyemi and Malen, with injuries halting their progress. And they will be aiming to make the difference for Borussia Dortmund in the coming weeks, starting with Saturday’s game against FC Köln.

Anthony Modeste has endured a difficult start to his Borussia Dortmund career. But he looks set to start up front against his former club on Saturday. The striker will be hoping for better service from those in front of him. A goal against Köln would go a long way in helping Modeste find some much needed momentum ahead of BVB’s busy run of fixtures.

Youssoufa Moukoko came off the bench and scored the winner against Schalke two weeks ago. He is expected to start on the bench once again on Saturday. Thorgan Hazard is another attacking option available to Edin Terzic.
