Team News:

New signing Dominik Szoboszlai will not be able to make his debut for Leipzig due to an abductor injury, with the Hungary winger likely to return to action in February.

Benjamin Henrichs, Ibrahima Konate, Konrad Laimer, Christopher Nkunku and Fabrice Hartmann are also all ruled out with injury, while Justin Kluivert and Nordi Mukiele are major doubts.

Dortmund appear to be more fortunate on the injury front, with only Thorgan Hazard and Marcel Schmelzer definitely ruled out of the trip to Leipzig.

Teenage sensations Youssoufa Moukoko and Jude Bellingham are injury doubts, though, so are unlikely to be risked in such a high-profile clash.
