Borussia Dortmund will return to Bundesliga action once again when they take the trip to visit Paderborn on Sunday.
Dortmund will be going into the game looking to solidify their place in the top four and hope to at least fight on for the league title.
There is still a lot to play for in the Bundesliga race with six games to go and the Black and Yellows, whose title hopes look all but over, will want to cement the second place at least.
Paderborn are rocked bottom on the league and are looking likely to be relegated at the end of the 2019/20.
The pair played out a 3-3 draw in the first encounter at Signal Iduna Park, with Dortmund scoring three second half goals after Paderborn had taken a three goal lead.

Recent League Form
Paderborn 07 (LLDDD)
Paderborn have not been good enough in their last five games as they are winless and have scored only two goals within that time frame. They are also yet to record a win since January 25th, a streak that sees them at the bottom of the league table after 28 games.
Borussia Dortmund (WWWWL)
Borussia Dortmund come into this came in somewhat disappointed despite their fine form until the loss to Bayern. The Black and Yellows have won twice and lost once since the Bundesliga returned.
Raphael Guerreiro, Thorgan Hazard and Julian Brandt have been superb but had bad day against a Bayern team that proved superior. Dortmund would have to bounce back from that defeat if they are to maintain their second spot on the standings.
Paderborn will be without the midfielder Klaus Gjasula through suspension, while a thigh injury will see Luca Kilian also miss the encounter with the Black and Yellows.
Streli Mamba should be fit to start after overcoming a knee problem while Christopher Antwi-Adjei has also shaken off a thigh complaint over the last couple of weeks and could be involved in the game.
For Dortmund, Marco Reus still remain unavailable for Lucien Favre with the former ruled out of the season. Mahmoud Dahoud, Dan-Axel Zagadou and Erling Haaland have both added to the woes of the manager with the formers set to miss the rest of the season.
Axel Witsel and Jadon Sancho should both be fit enough to return to the starting XI on Sunday.
Paderborn: Zingergie; Jans, Hunemeier, Schonlau, Collins; Antwi-Adjei, Vasiliadis, Ritter, Proger; Srbeny, Mamba
Dortmund: Burki; Piszczek, Hummels, Akanji; Hakimi, Dahoud, Can, Guerreiro; Sancho, Hazard, Brandt
Paderborn 0-3 Dortmund
