Lineup B. Dortmund vs Besiktas
Current form — B. Dortmund v. Besiktas
It is all or nothing with B. Dortmund at the moment, and sadly for them it has been more “nothing” than “all”. They first went down 3-1 in an encounter with Sporting CP, to which they replied by beating Wolfsburg 3-1. Their latest encounter once again had them on the losing side, when they lost 3-2 against Bayern München.
Only a single point prevents Besiktas from having nothing to show for their previous 3 games. They came up short, losing by 1-2 and 0-4 against Ajax and Giresunspor, respectively. Their latest match brought some consolation, as they were able to hang on for a 1-1 draw against Kasimpasa.

With Marco Reus on 3 goals in the last 6 matches for B. Dortmund, he certainly catches the eye as a possible goalscorer again. Rachid Ghezzal, meanwhile, hopes to supply the goods for Besiktas. Every opponent will have the winger singled out as a potential threat, although his record of 1 goal in 6 games leaves little to be desired.
