Jurgen Klopp has a nearly full-strength squad of players to choose from for the visit of Freiburg. The only absentees are defenders Patrick Owomoyela, who has a calf problem, and Julian Koch, who is yet to return to fitness after a lengthy lay-off.

Lukasz Piszczek was rested in favour of the former for last weekend's win over Kaiserslautern, and should slot in at right-back, while Mario Gotze should continue his return from injury on the right wing.

Despite scoring a hat-trick last time out, Lucas Barrios is expected to drop to the bench in favour of Robert Lewandowski.

Meanwhile, Freiburg also have a nearly full-strength squad to choose from, with the only projected absence being Julian Schuster, who has a facial injury.

  DID YOU KNOW?
  • If Borussia Dortmund overcome Freiburg, they will set a new league record for number of points achieved in a season.
  • If selected, Lucas Barrios (pictured, right) will be making his final Bundesliga appearance, before moving to China to play for Guangzhou Evergrande.
  • The hosts are in the midst of a 27-match unbeaten run in the Bundesliga.
  • The last time Freiburg won at Signal Iduna Park was in 2001-02, when they managed a 2-0 victory over Dortmund.
  • In 1994-95, the Breisgau-based team's second ever Bundesliga season, they finished a mere three points behind BVB, who were crowned champions.
  • Only Hertha Berlin and Koln have conceded more goals than Freiburg in the league this season.
