Bruno Labbadia is likely to stick with the personnel and formation that helped the Swabians battle to a 2-2 draw against Nurnberg last week, but could opt to rotate his squad with Artur Boka and Georg Niedemeier in with a chance to be included in starting lineup.

Stuttgart will have to do without the services of Johan Audel, captain Matthieu Delpierre, Pavel Pogrebnyak and Julian Schieber, who are still working their way back to fitness.

Changes are unlikely in Borussia Dortmund's first XI, after the 5-0 trashing of Koln in the last round. The definite absentees for BVB are Patrick Owomoyela, Julian Koch and Mohamed Zidan, who are injured.

Attacking midfielder Ivan Perisic returns from suspension after his red card against Werder Bremen, but is expected to start from the bench.
