Referee: Dingert to officiate

Christian Dingert, 43, from Lebecksmühle, will be taking charge of his 182nd match in the Bundesliga, and his fifteenth involving Borussia Dortmund. He will be assisted by Benedikt Kempkes and Nikolai Kimmeyer. Patrick Ittrich is the fourth official. Johan Pfeifer is on VAR duty. Dingert has been a DFB referee since 2002.

Kits: BVB in Black & Yellow

Borussia Dortmund will wear their usual colours: yellow shirts, black shorts and yellow socks. Union will wear red shirts, white shorts and red socks.

Statistics: a strong away record

Borussia Dortmund are unbeaten in six away games in the Bundesliga and have lost only one of eleven away games this season (2-1 in Stuttgart).
