Preview: Luner SV vs. Borussia Dortmund - prediction, team news, form guide

Sports Mole previews Tuesday's Club Friendlies 1 clash between Luner SV and Borussia Dortmund, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.

Borussia Dortmund will kickstart their preparations for the 2022-23 campaign on Tuesday night when they make the trip to the Kampfbahn Schwansbell to play Luner SV.

This will be the first friendly that the Bundesliga side will play as they look to get things started with a win, providing minutes to plenty of the squad in order to focus on fitness.


Match preview

Luner SV will be competing in one of their biggest games on Tuesday as the club that play their trade in the sixth league of the German football pyramid welcome a top Bundesliga team to their stadium.

Last season they managed a midtable finish in the Westfaleniga 1, coming in ninth place overall after 34 games in a campaign that saw mixed results for them.

Overall, Luner SV managed to win most of their fixtures, picking up 15 victories, eight draws, and 11 defeats across the 2021-22 season in the league.

The squad thrived best in their offensive displays, scoring 64 goals throughout the campaign, which led to their goal difference being the strongest of any team outside the top three.

This fixture serves as a chance for the team to prove themselves and test their qualities against a top German outfit, as they will be aiming to showcase the fact they can mix it up with the best.

For Borussia Dortmund, this will be their chance to kickstart life without Erling Braut Haaland following his transfer to Manchester City, offering up new opportunities to members of the squad.

BVB finished as runners-up in the Bundesliga last season, trailing Bayern Munich by eight points in the end, with the focus now being on closing that gap in the next season.

Marco Rose's team finished their 2021-22 campaign in mixed form, with two victories, three defeats, and two draws in their final six matches in all competitions.

Dortmund lost 3-2 in their most recent match which took place back in April against Dynamo Kiev, with three goals taking place in the first half from their opponents.

The Bundesliga side have made several signings already this summer, with this being the first opportunity for Rose to get a look at them in action.

Luner SV will be looking to play their strongest squad possible in order to provide as much competition as possible, which is something they should be able to do.

Dortmund will be without Haaland for the first time, and that will give opportunities elsewhere in the squad, with Youssoufa Moukoko being an option.

The Bundesliga side have invested in the squad throughout the summer so far with Niklas Sule, Nico Schlotterbeck, Karim Adeyemi, and Salih Ozcan all now being part of the team.

This match would provide Rose with the chance to make their debuts for the club in order to start pushing themselves into the squad, but this game will likely see a lot of rotation take place.

We say: Luner SV 0-5 Borussia Dortmund

There will likely be a major gulf in quality when it comes to this pre-season friendly, and while Borussia Dortmund are primarily focusing on fitness when it comes to this game, they will also want the win.

That is something that they should gain in this particular outing, as their squad strength should end up shining through here leading to a comfortable win.
