The German and Greek champions go head-to-head in Piraeus, with both desperately in need of a win to keep their knockout round hopes alive
Modesto, Papadopoulos, Mellberg, Holebas
Mirallas, Ibagaza, Abdoun
Piszczek, Subotic, Hummels, Lowe
Grosskreutz, Gotze, Perisic
Jurgen Klopp will have a selection headache as he decides on a number of positions. Any two of Shinji Kagawa, Kevin Grosskreutz, and Ivan Perisic could start along with Mario Gotze in attack, while either Ilkay Gundogan or Sebastian Kehl will be chosen to partner Sven Bender in defensive midfield.
For the hosts, David Fuster will be missing after fracturing a rib on Saturday. He will join fellow absentee Fran Yeste in the stands. There are also question marks over the availability of Ljubomir Fejsa, Vasilis Torosidis, and Giannis Fetfatzidis, who have all had injuries in recent weeks.
