2. Julian Brandt

The German international midfielder will be one of the first names on Terzic's team sheet, surely. Julian Brandt has been one of the best players for BVB this season, with his excellent creativity being the catalyst to some of their performances.

So far, Brandt has racked up an impressive 12 assists across all competitions this season, including one in the last Champions League match against PSV Eindhoven. In his last five games across all competitions, he has provided four assists. He is in great form, which makes him a non-negotiable starter in my books.

It works in Brandt's favour that he is one of the most versatile assts in the squad, so his chances of creeping into the starting eleven are immensely high. Needless to say, his strongest position is as the central midfielder but he is also comfortable playing on the wing.
