Borussia Dortmund were hardly humiliated in their 4-2 aggregate exit to Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-finals, but they face a huge uphill battle just to qualify for next season’s competition.
They are seven points away from fourth with only six games to go.
Werder Bremen have lost four in a row and should pose few problems, however, and one man who could continue to improve his growing reputation is 17 year-old English midfielder Jude Bellingham.
The former Birmingham City player opened the scoring in midweek against Man City, scored Dortmund’s first in their 3-2 win against Stuttgart in their last league game and also had a goal very harshly chalked off by VAR in the first leg away to City.
