Here is the latest on the form and team news of both clubs:
Borussia Dortmund, or die Borussen as they are fondly known in Germany, have suffered mixed fortunes on the field of play in recent weeks. Over their last 5 games in all competitions, they have won 3 and lost 2 and currently sit second on the Bundesliga standings, 6 points behind Bayern Munich.
In 22 league games, they have won 15, drawn 1, and lost 6, scoring 57 goals and conceding 36. They have fared far worse in Europe, as they could not progress to the Round of 16 in the Champions League after 3 wins and 3 losses in 6 games. They have scored 10 goals in this year’s European campaign and shipped another 11, with captain Marco Reus as their top scorer with 3 goals and 1 assist.
For Dortmund’s team news, they will most likely be unable to call up Erling Haaland, Thomas Meunier, Morey Bauza, and Wolf Marius, as all four players are currently injured.
Scottish Champions Rangers are locked in a title race with fierce rivals Celtic in the Scottish Premiership. They lie one point behind their rivals, having won 19, drawn 5, and lost 2 of their 26 league games thus far. They have scored 55 goals and conceded 21, and they appear to be in good form at the moment, with 3 straight wins after a loss and a draw in their last 5 games.
Rangers finished 2nd in their Europa League group and had a somewhat poor showing, with 2 wins, 2 draws, and 2 losses in 6 games. They scored only 6 goals throughout the group stages and conceded 5. Colombian international Alfredo Morelos is their leading goalscorer with 2 goals.
Rangers do not have too many injuries to concern themselves with at the moment, according to their team news. However, midfielder Hagi Ianis is likely to miss the encounter as he is currently injured. Oforborh Nnamdi and Jack Ryan will also miss the game with a heart problem and an injury, respectively.
