Goalkeeper: Roman Weidenfeller
Roman Weidenfeller didn't play a minute of the preseason for Dortmund but can expect to start in the Superpokal. Mitch Langerak did a decent job between the posts, but the veteran Weidenfeller, who turned 34 last week, is a vice-captain of the club and his leadership will be needed against Bayern.
Right-Back: Lukasz Piszczek
Lukasz Piszczek and Kevin Grosskreutz duked it out for a starting role at right-back last season, both being approximately level at season's end. Since then, Grosskreutz has won a World Cup title. But he's short of match practice and hasn't really had a chance to put himself ahead of Piszczek, who is the more likely to start.
Center-Back: Neven Subotic
Neven Subotic missed the Liverpool game on Sunday but was training pain-free before the match and should be fit to feature in the Superpokal. There will be heavy competition between Subotic, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Matthias Ginter for the starting roles in central defense, but the longstanding starter and Serbia international should have a slight edge.
Center-Back: Sokratis Papastathopoulos
With Mats Hummels only recently having returned to training and still recovering from an injury sustained during the World Cup, BVB will have to start without their new captain. A mainstay in the team from last season, Sokratis Papastathopoulos is likely to be used from the start, the Greece international having a slight edge over the newcomer Ginter.
Left-Back: Marcel Schmelzer
One of the most hotly contested spots in the Dortmund lineup this season will likely be that of left-back. Marcel Schmelzer didn't exactly cover himself in glory against Liverpool on Sunday, but considering the fact that Erik Durm only recently returned to training and wasn't first choice last season, Schmelzer more likely than not will get another chance.
Defensive Midfield: Sven Bender
Dortmund were outmuscled in midfield when they played Liverpool on Sunday, at least until Sven Bender was introduced. The 25-year-old is exactly the kind of player BVB need in their high-intensity, pressing system. He'll be needed especially against a Bayern side that can pass opponents to sleep.
Defensive Midfield: Oliver Kirch
With Nuri Sahin and Ilkay Gundogan both out injured, Klopp will probably start with a second natural holding player. Oliver Kirch fits the bill. The 31-year-old is no spring chicken, but he seems to have an edge on Sebastian Kehl, who at the age of 34 has lost the captaincy and is in the process of being moved to more of a leadership role from the bench than an on-field presence.
Right Wing: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was used both on the wing and as a second striker during the preseason, and exactly how he's used will depend on how Klopp plans his tactics. With Bayern playing without strictly designated full-backs, BVB may be more likely to attack down the flanks, with Aubameyang the man to deliver pace from the right. The Gabon international was prolific in preseason and will be keen to translate his form on the big stage.
Attacking Midfield: Milos Jojic
Whether Klopp opts for a 4-3-3 or a 4-2-3-1 formation, Milos Jojic stands a good chance of starting in the Superpokal. The Serbian midfielder is a combative player who can work between the lines, exactly the type BVB need in the center of the park. It's possible that the in-form Jonas Hofmann could come into the team in his place, but Jojic perhaps offers a little more reliability as a ball-winner and that could be the difference.
Left Wing: Henrikh Mkhitaryan
Like Aubameyang, Henrikh Mkhitaryan was brilliant during the preseason and despite increased competition for a starting role, he can expect to start. The Armenia international ended last season on a high note and seems to have picked up where he left off. Of course, all that matters is whether he can deliver when trophies are on the line. The Superpokal will be a big test for Mkhitaryan.
Center-Forward: Ciro Immobile
Dortmund's most expensive signing of the summer, Ciro Immobile outperformed Adrian Ramos in preseason and can expect to start. The Italian striker hit the ground running at Dortmund, combining well especially with Aubameyang in the attacking third. Ramos is yet to convince on the same level, so Immobile should get the nod in the center-forward position.
