Borussia Dortmund should be boosted by the return of Neven Subotic, who has yet to feature in 2013 following a hamstring injury, with Felipe Santana set to drop to the bench. Roman Weidenfeller has recovered from the flu which kept him out of the trip to Leverkusen last week, and will reclaim his place between the sticks.

Meanwhile, Sven Bender should keep his place in midfield ahead of club captain Sebastian Kehl. Nuri Sahin will start on the bench once more. Patrick Owomoyela remains sidelined.

Meanwhile, Felipe Santana will deputize for Neven Subotic at the heart of the Dortmund defense once again, as the Serbian continues his road back to full fitness from a hamstring injury.

By contrast, HSV is missing a host of players. Lam Zhi Gin has a knee problem, Michael Mancienne has torn ankle ligaments, Milan Badelj is suspended and Ivo Ilicevic has an abdominal muscle strain.

Maximilian Beister should start ahead of Tolgay Arslan on the right-hand side of midfield.
