Dortmund were leading the Bundesliga just a few days ago, but after falling to Bayern Munich 4-2, Dortmund now have to contend with an in-form Union Berlin. The top four teams in the standings are separated by just four points. Borussia Dortmund vs Union Berlin will take place on April 8 at Signal Iduna Park.

Union Berlin, who defeated struggling VfB Stuttgart 3-0 on Saturday, was in far better shape than Dortmund over the weekend. Berlin destroyed Stuttgart with three goals in just over 17 minutes. Genki Haraguchi, a midfielder for Stuttgart, scored an own goal to add insult to injury as Berlin turned their attention to Dortmund in the championship battle.

Dortmund: Jude Bellingham

Bellingham tends to generate options for implementing various playing philosophies. His commitment, effort, and passion are undeniable throughout the defensive phase. His knowledge of the game enables him to see opportunities for deep attacks or open areas between the lines where he can receive the ball, spin around, and create openings for teammates to score goals.

Union Berlin: Sheraldo Becker
