Borussia Dortmund will have to do without the services of defender Patrick Owomoyela, who has been ruled out with injury. The right-back is the only absentee for BVB, who will have a nearly full-strength squad at their disposal.

For Bayern Munich, Daniel van Buyten is training with the team after recovering from an injury he suffered in January. It is not yet clear what role he will play on Saturday, but he is most likely to start from the bench in the game against Dortmund.

Fellow defender Breno, however, will not feature as he is recovering from a knock, and is unlikely to play for the Bavarians again.
