The first Ruhr Derby of the 2023/24 season is here, and it will see Borussia Dortmund make the short trip to the Vonovia Ruhrstadion to take on VfL Bochum.

Donyell Malen scored the winning goal for Borussia Dortmund last weekend, and Edin Terzic will be counting on the in-form Dutchman to deliver the goods once again. Sebastien Haller will also look to open his Bundesliga account for the season on Saturday,
