Preview: Wolfsburg vs. Borussia Dortmund

Sports Mole's previews Saturday's Bundesliga clash between second and fifth as in-form Wolfsburg host Borussia Dortmund.

Borussia Dortmund will be looking for a swift return to winning ways in the Bundesliga this weekend, but face a stern test with a trip to in-form Wolfsburg.

Jurgen Klopp's side suffered their first home defeat in the Champions League on Wednesday night, with Arsenal prevailing at Signal-Iduna Park thanks to a solitary strike from Aaron Ramsey.

Dortmund must quickly turn their focus to facing Wolfsburg on Saturday afternoon as they come up against a side buoyed by three wins on the spin, moving up to fifth place in the Bundesliga, in a run featuring goals in three successive games from Maximilian Arnold.

Klopp has injury doubts over Mats Hummels and Jakub Blaszczykowski, which could give room for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to return out wide.

Wolfsburg, meanwhile, will be without Brazilian schemer Diego through injury as they aim for a fourth successive win, while Bas Dost and Vieirinha remain on the long-term casualty list.
