Jamie Bynoe-Gittens is expected to start once again ahead of Donyell Malen and Karim Adeyemi as Borussia Dortmund play at Stuttgart in the DFB Pokal on Wednesday night.
The Englishman has been in excellent form of late with two goals and an assist in his last three games across all competitions for Dortmund, including a Man of the Match performance against Borussia Mönchengladbach.
Edin Terzic’s Borussia Dortmund are coming into this game on the back of a three game unbeaten run but their last defeat, which came on November 11, was against Wednesday’s opponents, Stuttgart. Niclas Füllkrug, who scored in that game, is expected to start again with Sébastien Haller sidelined with a knee injury. Niklas Süle, Ramy Bensebaini and Salih Özcan all returned to training after having a cold, but Gio Reyna has now picked up a cold and is unlikely to feature.
Borussia Dortmund are unlikely to field an unchanged XI from their 1-1 draw against Bayer Leverkusen.
Predicted Borussia Dortmund XI vs Stuttgart
Gregor Kobel – Marius Wolf, Mats Hummels, Nico Schlotterbeck, Julian Ryerson – Emre Can, Marcel Sabitzer – Marco Reus, Julian Brandt, Jamie Bynoe-Gittens – Niclas Füllkrug.
