Dortmund leave four starters at home ahead of Mainz trip

North Rhine-Westphalia's "Ruhr Nachrichten" newspaper reports that Borussia Dortmund have left Mats Hummels, Niclas Füllkrug, Karim Adeyemi, and Marcel Sabitzer at home ahead of their trip to Mainz. 

BVB trainer Edin Terzic once again appears prepared to deploy a heavily rotated squad in a league fixture against Mainz this evening. As is commonly the case ahead of Dortmund away fixtures, North Rhine-Westphalia's "Ruhr Nachrichten" newspaper has kept close tabs on which players traveled with the team. Four of the players who started against PSG midweek have been left behind. 

Niclas Füllkrug, Karim Adeyemi, Marcel Sabitzer, Mats Hummels did not travel with the team. Last week's promising debutant Kjell Wätjen has once again been selected for Terzic's bench squad. So too, after reporting to the reserves last week, has potential transfer candidate Ole Pohlmann. Terzic already confirmed at his Friday presser that he would be rotating his squad in order to keep "fresh" personnel on the pitch.
