The big-name action continues on Saturday with the Battle of the Borussias. With captain Marco Reus fit again, Borussia Dortmund’s attacking prospects are frightening – and young – in Jadon Sancho, Erling Haaland and Gio Reyna, while Jude Bellingham also scored on his debut in the DFB Cup. They face a Borussia
Mönchengladbach team a year into life under Marco Rose and with a top-four finish already under their belts.
RB Leipzig return to Bundesliga action for the first time since reaching the semi- finals of the UEFA Champions League. Now without perennial top scorer Timo Werner, Julian Nagelsmann is tasked with taking the club to the next level domestically. They begin against a solid-looking 1. FSV Mainz 05 attempting to
make good last season’s 8-0 thrashing at the Red Bull Arena and improve on their 13th-place finish.
