Borussia Dortmund will be hoping to maintain their form in pre-season when they face lower division German club SC Verl. The Bundesliga side will head into a new direction under Edin Terzic in the upcoming season. Dortmund had let go of Marco Rose in the summer and are now planning for life with Terzic in the dugout.
