Forwards: Marco Reus, Donyell Malen, Sebastien Haller

The trio that played a huge role in making Borussia Dortmund title challengers in 2023 will likely start together in most games this season. But with Karim Adeyemi unlikely to be fit enough to play from the start on Saturday, we will probably see Marco Reus in the starting XI.

The former BVB captain has it all to do as he looks to fight his way back into Borussia Dortmund’s full-strength starting XI this season.

Edin Terzic was full of praise of Donyell Malen on Thursday, and the hope will be that the Dutchman can pick up where he left off last season. Malen scored a brace against Manchester United during the US tour, and was also on the scoresheet against TSV Schott Mainz.

Sebastien Haller will lead the line for Borussia Dortmund. And his goal-scoring prowess, coupled with his ability to hold the ball up the pitch will be immense for the Black and Yellows.
