With the chance to potentially move within a point of RB Leipzig and top spot, Borussia Dortmund will welcome Union Berlin to Signal-Iduna-Park on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, putting in what was yet another rampant display in their thumping 5-1 victory over Koln last weekend, Dortmund have landed back-to-back victories and their goalscoring antics have sent shockwaves across Europe. Bagging nine goals in those two victories and with a Champions League knockout tie on the horizon, one man to keep an eye out for on Saturday will be the red-hot Erling Haaland. Recording a hat-trick on his debut and also bagging a brace last weekend, the Danish sensation has scored his five goals in just 59 minutes of Bundesliga football and he should be confident of extending that tally on Saturday afternoon.

As for the visitors, while Union Berlin may have managed to snatch a shock 2-0 victory off of Augsburg last weekend, it does not cover what has been a worrying start to the New Year for the Bundesliga debutants. Losing their top-half status and losing three of their last four appearances, Urs Fischer’s men have continued to show some worrying issues at the back, particularly on the road. Including being hit with a 3-1 hammering away at league leaders RB Leipzig last month, Berlin have recorded just a sole victory outside of the capital all season and they have also shipped at least a pair of strikes in five of their last six matchups away from the Stadion An der Alten Försterei.
