Though their title hops are all but over, Borussia Dortmund have plenty to play for in their remaining fixtures, as they’ll look to secure a spot in the Champions League next season. The Black and Yellow are back in Bundesliga action this weekend with a trip to 16th-placed Fortuna Düsseldorf.
Kickoff from Esprit Arena is slated for 9:30 a.m. and will be broadcast on FS1. Live streaming will be available on the Fox Sports app as well as the Reddit Soccer Stream subreddit.

Dortmund really lacked conviction in front of net last time out against Hertha Berlin, as they walked away with an unconvincing 1-0 victory. Lucien Favre will be relieved to have striker Erling Haaland, who’s missed the last two matches with a knee injury, available for selection. The Norwegian star has scored 10 goals in his first 11 games for the club.

BVB shouldn’t take Düsseldorf lightly as they will be fighting to avoid regulation for the remainder of the campaign. Just three points separates Uwe Rösler’s side from the regulation zone, and a loss could put them in 17th place by the end of match play this weekend.
Expect end-to-end stuff on Saturday morning from two clubs that will stop at nothing to secure all three points.
