Borussia Dortmund-Hamburg Preview: Champions looking to avenge early-season loss

Borussia Dortmund-Hamburg Preview: Champions looking to avenge early-season loss

Jurgen Klopp's side suffered their first league defeat of 2012 to HSV back in September, and will be hoping to get their own back at Signal Iduna Park

  PROBABLE LINEUPS

DORTMUND

Weidenfeller
Piszczek, Subotic, Hummels, Schmelzer
Gundogan, Bender

Blaszczykowski, Gotze, Reus
Lewandowski

HAMBURG

 
Adler
Diekmeier, Bruma, Westermann, Jansen
Rincon, Aogo
Beister, Van der Vaart, Son
Rudnevs


Borussia Dortmund should be boosted by the return of Neven Subotic, who has yet to feature in 2013 following a hamstring injury, with Felipe Santana set to drop to the bench. Roman Weidenfeller has recovered from the flu which kept him out of the trip to Leverkusen last week, and will reclaim his place between the sticks.

Meanwhile, Sven Bender should keep his place in midfield ahead of club captain Sebastian Kehl. Nuri Sahin will start on the bench once more. Patrick Owomoyela remains sidelined.

By contrast, HSV are missing a host of players. Lam Zhi Gin has a knee problem, Michael Mancienne has torn ankle ligaments, Milan Badelj is suspended and Ivo Ilicevic has an abdominal muscle strain.

Maximilian Beister should start ahead of Tolgay Arslan on the right-hand side of midfield.
