Germany internationals Mario Gotze and Thomas Muller both miss out on a starting berth as Borussia Dortmund face Bayern Munich in the DFB-Pokal final at the Olympiastadion in Berlin.
Jurgen Klopp has decided to stick with the side used for the majority of their Bundesliga-winning campaign, during which Gotze spent four months on the sidelines with injury. Ilkay Gundogan is rewarded for his excellent recent form with a starting berth, meaning Sven Bender must settle for a place on the bench.
Bayern Munich have a full squad for Jupp Heynckes to pick from, but once again Thomas Muller finds himself on the bench for a crunch game.
Toni Kroos will therefore occupy an attacking-midfield role as Luiz Gustavo fills in alongside Bastian Schweinsteiger in the holding positions. David Alaba starts at left-back meaning there is no place for Rafinha in defence.
Borussia Dortmund (4-2-3-1): Weidenfeller; Piszczek, Hummels, Subotic, Schmelzer; Kehl, Gundogan; Blaszczykowski, Kagawa, Grosskreutz; Lewandowski.
Subs: Langerak, Felipe Santana, Bender, Gotze, Leitner, Perisic, Barrios.
Bayern Munich (4-2-3-1): Neuer; Lahm, Boateng, Badstuber, Alaba; Schweinsteiger, Gustavo; Robben, Kroos, Ribery; Gomez.
Subs: Butt, Contento, Rafinha, Tymoshchuk, Pranjic, Muller, Olic.
