Borussia Dortmund will take on Leipzig at SIGNAL IDUNA PARK on Friday. Kick-off is at 20:30 CET. We have compiled all the info on our Bundesliga home game below. This page will be updated if there is any news.

Starting XI: Ryerson returns

Borussia will be without Adeyemi (torn muscle fibres), Moukoko (partial tear of the syndesmosis ligament), Malen (knock to the ankle), Duranville and Morey (both fitness training) and will start with two changes compared to the team that won away in Hoffenheim last weekend, with Ryerson and Özcan set to replace Guerreiro and Bynoe-Gittens.

Our starting line-up: Kobel – Wolf, Süle, Schlotterbeck, Ryerson – Can – Reus, Özcan, Bellingham, Brandt – Haller


Tickets: sold-out, but secondary market open late

The eleventh home match of the 2022/23 season is officially sold-out, with a capacity crowd of 81,365 spectators. However, the secondary ticket market is open until 19:00 CET for the big game against Leipzig, meaning there is a last-minute chance to buy tickets.

ver.di strike: please travel early

The ver.di trade union is going on a full-day strike on match day, which means that public transport in Dortmund will be shut down for the most part, as will DSW21’s bus and light rail services. Unfortunately, the strike measures will have a significant impact on the arrival and departure of tens of thousands of fans. BVB appeals to all stadium visitors to take note of this informationen and to consider it when planning their arrival/departure. We will update the article as soon as new information is available.

Referee: Sven Jablonski to officiate

The 32-year-old from Bremen will take charge of a BVB match for the ninth time. So far this season, he has refereed two of the Black & Yellows’ Bundesliga fixtures (a 3-0 loss in Leipzig and a 4-2 defeat in Mönchengladbach) as well as a DFB-Pokal tie in Hannover (a 2-0 win for Borussia). In total, BVB’s record in games in which Jablonski has blown the whistle reads four wins, two draws and two defeats. Jablonski has already refereed over 500 games across Germany’s three professional tiers. 


Live broadcast: DAZN & Net Radio

The match can be watched live on TV via DAZN. The pre-match coverage will begin at 19:45 CET, with Marco Hagemann (pictured) the match commentator and Sami Khedira on punditry duty. The programme will be presented by Alex Schlüter. The BVB Net Radio will also give you the Black & Yellow take live from the stadium, with the usual suspects Norbert Dickel and Boris Rupert on the mic. Match highlights plus the press conference and match reactions will be available on BVB TV, among others.
