Dortmund

Die Borussen
Team Story

Thomas Tuchel had Dortmund firing last season - nearly any other year, their 78 points would have been enough to win the title. But, as always, there’s Bayern. While their captain, Mats Hummels, has exited alongside Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Ilkay Gundogan (to opposite sides of Manchester), Dortmund have brought in capable replacements in Mario Götze and Andre Schürrle while also keeping hold of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. With master tinkerer Thomas Tuchel now settled as he takes on his second season at Signal Iduna Park, there will be few teams confident in overpowering or outsmarting Dortmund.

Key Players
17
Forward

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Highlights
Overall Player rating:
90
Nationality: Gabonese

Dortmund somehow managed to keep hold of the electric forward who scored 39 goals last season.

25
Defender

Sokratis

Highlights
Overall Player rating:
84
Nationality: Greek

The Greek defender will be even more crucial to Dortmund's season after captain Mats Hummels departure. His last name, Papastathopoulos, is too long to print, so his jersey simply reads, "Sokratis."
