Borussia Dortmund Team News
Dortmund will continue to be without Haaland for at least another month.
Raphael Guerreiro, on the other hand, makes a welcome return to the left wing-back position for this one, and he should slide right back in after the likes of Thorgan Hazard, Nico Schulz, and Marcel Schmelzer have all been missing in that part of the pitch.
Hazard might be moved further forward into a ‘false nine’ role in lieu of Donyell Malen, who has only scored once since joining in the summer and has struggled to fill the Haaland-shaped vacuum in attack.
Mateu Morey and Giovanni Reyna are unquestionably out, while Mahmoud Dahoud, Marius Wolf, Emre Can, Dan-Axel Zagadou, and Youssoufa Moukoko are all question marks.
Stuttgart Team News
Stuttgart, like their hosts, has been without their leading goal scorer from last season, Sasa Kalajdzic, who is out until next month due to a shoulder injury.
Other confirmed absentees are Enzo Millot, Konstantinos Mavropanos, Momo Cisse, and Mohamed Sankoh, with Naouirou Ahamada, Chris Fuhrich, and Erik Thommy noted as doubts.
Omar Marmoush, on loan from Wolfsburg, has returned to training and is eligible for the trip, although the Egyptian forward is likely to be among the replacements.
Florian Muller has regained his fitness and should replace Fabian Bredlow in goal. He will face the man he replaced in the summer, Gregor Kobel, who left for Saturday’s opponents Dortmund.
Borussia Dortmund XI: Kobel; Pongracic, Akanji, Hummels; Meunier, Witsel, Bellingham, Guerreiro; Brandt, Reus; Hazard
Stuttgart XI: Muller; Anton, Ito, Kempf; Massimo, Karazor, Endo, Sosa; Mangala; Didavi, Al Ghaddioui
