Preview: Borussia Dortmund vs. Hamburger SV

Sports Mole takes a closer look at Hamburger SV's trip to face Borussia Dortmund on Saturday.

Even at this early stage of the season, Borussia Dortmund have already made every game a must-win if they are to apply any pressure on Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga title race.

Heading into this Saturday's clash with bottom club Hamburger SV, Dortmund currently sit 12th in the table with just seven points from six games.

Despite their recent troubles in Germany, Jurgen Klopp's side continued their impressive form in the Champions League by cruising to a 3-0 triumph over Anderlecht.

Klopp will desperate to a similar display in the league after going three Bundesliga games without a win, and he could be tempted to limit the changes he makes to his side.

However, there is likely to be a place in the team for Adrian Ramos, who impressed his manager with a brace coming off the bench in Belgium.

Dortmund will be meeting a side whose needs are similarly desperate to their own, with the visitors still searching for their first win of the new season.

Josef Zinnbauer has been forced to make changes over and over again, and could bring Petr Jiracek back into the midfield as he looks to frustrate the hosts at Signal Iduna Park.
