After a amazing weekend, BVB look to take their momentum into the Champions League as we take on Legia Warsaw at home. There isn’t much to say about this game that we aren’t already thinking. We crushed Warsaw 6-0 last time out and we have already secured qualification for the group stage.

If there is one thing to look forward to it’s that BVB announced Marco Reus will most likely make his season debut this match. This is huge news as Reus has been out the entire season so far. With our golden boy finally returning and BVB back in the league race, there’s a lot of hope for what BVB can do this year.

Since we faced them last Warsaw has seen much better results on the season. They have went from the bottom of the table to being back into title contention. Even Tuchel said BVB are going to be cautious against the team they so easily destroyed last time around. But still it wouldn’t be surprising to see a rotated lineup.

BVB’s predicted lineup certainly shows a rotated eleven. Seeing Durm and Sahin get a start would be nice. Also I wonder how Pulisic plays on the right wing opposite Reus. There isn’t much more to say about this game. Dembele and Castro as out attacking midfielders would usually make me nervous but today it seems like a good chance for them to get some valuable playing time. Even though Warsaw gave Real Madrid a little trouble their last time out, they ended up collapsing anyways.

Another note about the game, Signal Iduna Park will not be sold out tonight. Warsaw’s fans are banned from attending the game for their rioting at home in our first fixture.
