Greuther Furth will be without a host of players for the visit of last season's champions. Zoltan Stieber and Michael Hefele are both in training, but unfit, Matthias Zimmermann is suspended and Sebastian Tyrala has a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Dortmund, meanwhile, will make a host of changes from their team against Malaga in midweek, with Kevin Grosskreutz, Nuri Sahin, Sebastian Kehl, Moritz Leitner and Julian Schieber all making starts.

Mats Hummels should get a run out in defence after making his comeback from injury. Patrick Owomoyela remains sidelined.
