Borussia Dortmund will aim to bounce back from their disappointing home defeat to Arsenal when they visit Wolfsburg on Saturday, with the game available to watch live streaming (KO 14:30GMT).
Jurgen Klopp’s side went down 1-0 to the Gunners thanks to Aaron Ramsey’s header with the defeat leaving them third in the group, three points off the qualification places.
While the defeat, Dortmund’s first loss at home to an English side, would have been difficult to take for Klopp and his players, the manager has urged his players to put the game behind them and focus on the league clash against the Wolves.

We have to switch our focus to the league now,” he said, speaking to www.bundesliga.com. “If we manage to adopt the right attitude, we can turn the defeat into something positive. Wolfsburg have a strong team, but we believe we can take something from the game.”
Dortmund will head into the game looking for their fourth straight win in the league although they will be very wary against an in form Wolfburg side that beat them 3-2 last season and also picked up a point in a 3-3 draw.
Dortmund should welcome back defender Mats Hummels after he missed the clash against Arsenal with injury, veteran Sebastian Kehl is also close to a return to action although Klopp has yet to decide if he will feature on Saturday.
“He’s done very well. The international break will give him extra time to recuperate,” said Klopp Of Kehl. “Whether he will play a part on Saturday remains to be seen.”
Polish star Jakub Błaszczykowski is a doubt with a gastrointestinal infection.
Wolfsburg are currently fifth in the Bundesliga table and also have won their last three league games.
Dieter Hecking’s side have beaten Frankfurt, Augsburg and Werder Bremen to surge up the table and the former Hannover manager believes his side can upset Dortmund if they stay focused.
“We need to play our own game,” he told the club’s official website. “We cannot allow errors, as Dortmund will quickly punish mistakes.
“Ball retention will be important to ensure the speed of the Dortmund attack does not come into play.”
Wolfsburg will be without Brazilian playmaker Diego after the midfielder picked up a stomach muscle injury last time and Hecking believes his team can cope without the 28 year old “It’s a shame that our best player is missing for a game like this, but I have complete confidence that the rest of the team can step up to the plate,”
