Bittencourt slips a pass into the feet of Ducksch. He lays it off for Füllkrug on the penalty spot, but Schotterbeck gets a toe on it and Guerreiro completes the clearance. The whistle then sounds for an earlier handball.

CAUTION

Much better from Dortmund as Brandt and Bellingham combine to free Reus. He's well covered by a Bremen defender, but the ball breaks free in the box. Modeste doesn't have the pace, though, and Pavlenka's first to it, the Werder stopper taking a shinbone to the face for his troubles. No intent from Modeste, who is harshly booked.

DORTMUND KNOCKING

Dortmund turn the screw as Reus drives into the Bremen box. He goes to ground as Pieper makes a timely invervention in the six-yard area - but the referee is unmoved. It breaks free for Bellingham, whose dangerous cross is fended to safety.

REUS ON A ROLL

Reus controls a long ball into the Bremen box, but his ensuing cross is behind Modeste. The flag was up against the BVB captain, in any case. Reus has 14 goals and eight assists in 19 Bundesliga appearances against Werder, making them his favourite opponent.

WARNING SHOT

Dortmund have started brightly. They work the ball in off the left to Dahoud, who arrows wide from 10 yards.

THREAD WATCH

Dortmund are in black-and-yellow stripes, with black shorts and yellow socks. Bremen's away get-up is a shade of salmon, with green shorts and socks that combine the two colours.
Kick-off!

TOP SPOT UP FOR GRABS

Dortmund will go top, overnight at least, with a win. Gladbach are the current leaders, while Bayern travel to Bochum tomorrow.

BREMEN BACK TO THE BEGINNING

Bremen's starting XI looks familiar – it is a repeat of their Matchday 1 starting XI, with Groß back in for Gruev.

YOUNG BVB

Five players in the Dortmund squad are under the age of 20, with Bellingham and Bynoe-Gittens starting and Moukoko, Reyna and Rothe on the bench.

SECOND START FOR J B-G

Bynoe-Gittens makes only his second start for Dortmund, having lined up for the 4-3 defeat to Bochum on Matchday 32 last season.

WERDER STARTING XI

Pavlenka – Pieper, Veljkovic, Friedl (c) – Weiser, Bittencourt, Groß, Stage, Jung - Füllkrug, Ducksch

DORTMUND STARTING XI

Kobel - Wolf, Hummels, Schlotterbeck, Guerreiro - Dahoud, Bellingham – Bynoe-Gittens, Reus (c), Brandt – Modeste

FORM FAVOURS BVB

With today's classic encounter now upon us, it's worth noting that Borussia have won 12 of the last 14 Bundesliga home games against Werder, but lest we forget, the visitors are currently enjoying a solid away run. Ole Werner's outfit are undefeated on the road since 12 March and boasted the second-best away record in Germany's second tier last term. When you crunch the numbers, it's all set up for a fascinating fixture.

BELLINGHAM PRAISE

"He’s been one of our most consistent players over the last couple of years," Terzic said of Jude Bellingham, who is rapidly approaching a century of games in Black-and-Yellow. "He has developed really well both physically and in terms of his character," the tactician added. Terzic has been so impressed, he made Bellingham the club's third captain in the summer.

TEEN TITANS

With Bynoe-Gittens and Moukoko making an impact a week ago, all eyes will again be on Dortmund's energetic youngsters, the source of so much promise.
camera-photo

A DUCKSCH NOT OUT OF WATER

Bremen have won eight and lost just one of their last 11 away matches, and in Marvin Ducksch possess a forward who played for Dortmund alongside the likes of Robert Lewandowski and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after making his Bundesliga debut in the 2013/14 season. "It's looking good," said Dortmund-born Ducksch referring to the muscle problem that forced him to train on his own for much of the week.

BREMEN'S UNBEATEN RUN

Bremen are also unbeaten 180 minutes into their return to the top flight following draws with Wolfsburg and Stuttgart. They have scored twice in both games, meaning coach Ole Werner will be seeking a means to stem to the tide at the back while maintaining the clinical streak in front of goal that fired them to promotion last term.

JUDE A CERTAIN STARTER

Jude Bellingham will once more be the midfield hub for the hosts, who are unbeaten in their last seven Bundesliga encounters with Bremen (W4, D3). Fit-again defender Niklas Süle could also "get some minutes" from the bench, while Karim Adeyemi is also an option again.

FAITH IN YOUTH

Teenage supersubs Youssoufa Moukoko and Jamie Bynoe-Gittens, who signed a new long-term deal this week, came off the bench to inspire their late come-from-behind win in the Black Forest last time out and the pair could well be given more time on the pitch to impress this week, but new arrival Anthony Modeste should lead the line again as he looks to open his account for BVB since moving from Cologne

DORTMUND RISING

Edin Terzic's outfit have picked up maximum points from testing encounters with Bayer Leverkusen and Freiburg, and now welcome newly promoted Bremen to the Signal Iduna Park with only goal difference separating them from Bayern Munich.
