Axel Witsel is a doubt for the home side while Thorgan Hazard will undoubtedly play no part in this game. The jury is still out on the fitness of Manuel Akanji. Meanwhile, Nico Schulz looks set to miss this clash after picking up an ankle injury during the ongoing international break.
Havertz, Karim Bellarabi, and Leon Bailey should all be available for the away side. Peter Bosz is expected to field an identical lineup to the one that drew with Hoffenheim as he aims to record his first win over Dortmund.
