Hoffenheim take on Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga on Saturday.

Borussia Dortmund, who qualified for the second round of the Champions League on Wednesday, travel to Hoffenheim on Saturday for their return to Bundesliga action.

The hosts have won just once at home in the league all season and are on a poor run of form with just four points from a possible 15.

Dortmund, who are now 10 points behind league leaders Bayern Munich, have lost three of their last four in the league and must start winning if they are to claw back the difference.

The hosts are expected to start with Anthony Modeste up front, although Markus Gisdol could be tempted to stick with Sven Schipplock, who scored last time.

Dortmund will welcome back Manuel Friedrich, who could not play in the Champions League, and Lukasz Piszczek could replace Erik Durm in defence.
