Some great news today ahead of the Champions League game against Legia Warsaw. With a win Borussia Dortmund could cement their ambition to finish the group in first place ahead of Real Madrid. However we can expect a heavily rotated team with one very special participant.

  • Will Marco Reus actually play this time?

We've been teased before but this time it might actually happen but it's Reus so I won't believe it until I actually see him on the field in a BVB-jersey. It looks good though, he participated in the final pre-game training session without any problems. You better score a hattrick Marco, we've been waiting way to long, we deserve it.

At the 2016 general meeting Hans-Joachim Watzke confirmed that Borussia Dortmund will travel to the USA. You can expect that young American wunderkind Christian Pulisic will feature heavily in the marketing campaign in the US. With him the black and yellows should have a leg up on basically every other European team when it comes to garnering support in the USA.

  • Watzke not impressed with eSports

CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke was asked the new trend and responded quite harshly: "It's possible that it's trending right now but I think it's complete shit". Ouch. That's a bit harsh and inconsiderate from him. Earlier this year Schalke 04 was the first Bundesliga club to sponsor a League of Legends team.

Daily Buzz: What's you opinion on eSports? Do you follow it or think it's "shit" like Watzke?
