Sports Mole previews the Bundesliga meeting between out-of-form sides Borussia Dortmund and Hannover.

Borussia Dortmund will be looking to turn around their faltering Bundesliga season when they host Hannover at the Westfalenstadion this weekend.

Die Borussen head into the game on the back of three straight defeats in the league, winning just two of their eight games this season.

The dire run of results has seen last season's runners-up slip to 14th place in the table, although their form in Europe is a different matter completely.

A 4-0 victory over Galatasaray last night saw Jurgen Klopp's charges make it three wins from three, with not a single goal conceded in the Champions League thus far.

Now the hosts must look to repeat that performance against a Hannover side who are themselves somewhat out of sorts at the moment.

Having gone three games unbeaten at the start of the season, the Reds have failed to pick up a single point in their last three outings, which includes a 3-0 home reverse at the hands of Borussia Monchengladbach last time out.

Something will have to give as the two come together this weekend, with Dortmund able to call upon fit-again Marco Reus, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Shinji Kagawa for the clash.
