BVB will have four Bundesliga games – three of them away – on the agenda in March. On top of that there’s the return leg against PSV Eindhoven at SIGNAL IDUNA PARK, where a place in the Champions League quarter-final is at stake.

Saturday 2 March (15:30 CET): Union Berlin vs. BVB
BVB’s last two matches against Union Berlin have been at home: the Black & Yellows won 2-1 in the 2022/23 season and then 4-2 in the reverse fixture thanks to goals from Niclas Füllkrug, Nico Schlotterbeck, Julian Brandt and Julian Ryerson. Now they’re back off to Berlin, where BVB have won only one of their last four games. The Köpenick outfit made a coaching switch in November: Nenad Bjelica took over from Urs Fischer and has since picked up five victories, three draws and three defeats in 11 Bundesliga matches. Union are currently in 14th position in the table.

Saturday 9 March (18:30 CET): Werder Bremen vs. BVB
BVB have won their last three away matches against Werder Bremen, mostly recently by a 2-0 scoreline almost a year ago. Jamie Bynoe-Gittens and Bremen native Julian Brandt scored for the Black & Yellows. BVB also won the reverse fixture in October 2023 when Brandt scored in a 1-0 win. Four former Borussia players are in the Northern German team’s squad: Amos Pieper, Leonardo Bittencourt, Marvin Ducksch and Justin Njinmah. Niclas Füllkrug made his first appearances of the campaign for Bremen before making the move to the Ruhr region shortly before the end of the transfer window last summer. 

Wednesday 13 March (21:00 CET): BVB vs. PSV Eindhoven
BVB played out a 1-1 draw against PSV Eindhoven in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League round of 16 (goal: Donyell Malen) and are thus in a good position ahead of the return fixture at SIGNAL IDUNA PARK. “It will be a great Champions League night. We’re playing at home and have the entire stadium behind us,” goalscorer Malen said directly after the final whistle had sounded in the first meeting. On eight of nine previous occasions, an away draw in the first leg has been enough to see them through.

Sunday 17 March (17:30 CET): BVB vs. Eintracht Frankfurt
BVB will face Eintracht Frankfurt in their final match before the international break. The last home games against the Hesse side ended in 4-0 and 5-2 wins. The away game last October was a rollercoaster ride, however. After Frankfurt had initially taken a 2-0 lead, the Black & Yellows restored parity through Marcel Sabitzer and Youssoufa Moukoko. Eintracht subsequently found the net once again, only for Brandt to complete the scoring by levelling at 3-3 in the 82nd minute.

Saturday 30 March (18:30 CET): FC Bayern Munich vs. BVB
The top match against Bayern Munich will take place on the Easter weekend. BVB lost the reverse fixture in Dortmund 4-0 last November, while the most recent away match – which was almost a year earlier to the day – ended in a 4-2 loss. The record champions are currently in second spot in the table.
