Borussia Dortmund host Hannover in the Bundesliga on Saturday afternoon.

Borussia Dortmund host Hannover as the Bundesliga returns following the international break and they will be looking to recover from their first league defeat of the season away to Borussia Monchengladbach.

The hosts are currently one point behind league leaders Bayern Munich and will want to keep up the pressure on the Bavarians with a win.

Hannover have started the season well and currently sit fifth, although they have lost all three of their away games so far.

The hosts remain without both starting full-backs Marcel Schmelzer and Lukasz Piszczek, which should see Kevin Grosskreutz and Erik Durm continue.

For Hannover, Didier Ya Konan will be out for a large part of the season but there is a boost as Mame Biram Diouf could be fit enough to return to the squad.
