Borussia Dortmund will look to turn all their attention to making it into the top four of the German Bundesliga at the end of the season following their exit from the UEFA Champions League.
The Black and Yellows lost to Manchester City on Wednesday with a 1-2 scoreline at the Signal Iduna Park, making it a 4-2 aggregate in favour of the Premier League club.
Back to league action, Borussia Dortmund faces Werder Bremen in their next game hoping that a possible win will kick-start a good run of form in the remaining games.
Edin Terzic’s men have just one win from their last five games across all competitions. Bremen have also lost four of their last five games in all competitions with the only win coming in the DFB Pokal.
A win for Dortmund will take them closer to the top four places knowing that both Eintracht Frankfurt and Wolfsburg face tough fixtures over the weekend as well.
