Eintracht Frankfurt boss Armin Veh is likely to be without Pirmin Schwegler and Olivier Occean after the pair were substituted early in the 2-1 win over Nurnberg on Saturday.

Other than rushing the pair back to feature at the Commerzbank Arena on Tuesday evening, Veh is likely to start their replacements at the weekend - Martin Lanig and Erwin Hoffer, who broke the deadlock against Dieter Hecking's side.

For Borussia Dortmund, the same starting eleven that featured in the shock 3-2 defeat to Hamburg on Saturday are set to retain their places, though Ivan Perisic who scored a double in the weekend defeat, could replace Jakub Blasczykowski.

Jurgen Klopp's side lost their 31-game unbeaten run on Saturday, suffering their first defeat in almost a year in the Bundesliga.
