Dortmund need to find other solutions in possession and up front now after top-scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang left the club. Former Cologne manager Peter Stöger is already under pressure to improve the side in attack after three straight draws.

I always hate talking about myself because it feels weird to talk about myself honestly. Ever think that it's weird? No? Just me? My bad. Always hungry, always sleepy and in between always writing. Hope you won't mind!
