Tomas Pekhart has undergone surgery on his thumb, but is likely to make the squad for Friday's clash. Meanwhile, Juri Judt and Timothy Chandler have both returned to fitness, but are unlikely to make the starting line-up. However, Per Nilsson sustained an injury in the course of the week, while Hanno Balitsch, Tim Klose and Javier Pinola are not fit enough to play any part.

Mario Gotze remains sidelined for the Bundesliga champions, but Jakub 'Kuba' Blaszczykowski's recent renaissance makes the 19-year-old absence less of a headache. Despite deadline day speculation linking him with Fulham, Lucas Barrios stayed at the club, but is only set to make the bench, behind the in-form Robert Lewandowski.
