Borussia Monchengladbach will be without the services of star man Patrick Herrmann, who picked up his fifth yellow card of the season during last week's 1-0 loss to Hamburg at the Imtech Arena, with Mike Hanke expected to replace him.
The only other absence will be Branimir Hrgota, who is building up fitness following a knee injury.
Borussia Dortmund, meanwhile, is likely to field Mario Gotze as a makeshift striker thanks to the suspensions of Robert Lewandowski and Julian Schieber.
Kevin Grosskreutz will slot in on the left wing, but veteran defender Patrick Owomoyela remains sidelined.
