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.
