Date: Saturday 3rd December Venue: Signal Iduna Park Competition: Bundesliga KO: 14.30
Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Burki is still sidelined so Roman Weidenfeller will be between the posts.
Shinji Kagawa and Raphael Guerreiro are pushing for starting places.
Borussia Monchengladbach have Patrick Herrmann and Ibrahima Traore injured. Fabian Johnson should play on the right side of midfield.
Dortmund lost last week to Eintracht Frankfurt after beating Bayern Munich the week before. It is that consistency which is is threatening to undermine their season. A win here in a potentially difficult fixture would really get them back to competing at the top of the division.
Monchengladbach are five points off the relegation zone and are in desperate need of a win. The added pressure of Champions League football this season in a tough group may well have taken its toll on their league form.
Manager Andre Schubert have not been lucky with injuries either but with some key players coming back a rise up the table is expected.
Expect Dortmund to dominate this game and carry on their excellent home form. Monchengladbach have a good recent record in this competition and could spring a surprise at the Signal Iduna Park.
Dortmund are the joint top scorers in the Bundesliga with 27.
Monchengladbach have not won in seven Bundesliga games.
Christoph Kramer has the joint worst disciplinary record in the Bundesliga.
Dortmund: Weidenfeller; Piszczek, Bartra, Ginter, Schmelzer; Weigl, Rode; Dembele, Gotze, Schurrle; Aubameyang
Monchengladbach: Sommer; Elvedi, Vestergaard, Christensen; Johnson, Kramer, Strobl, Wendt; Korb, Dohoud; Raffael
Prediction: Dortmund 2-1 Monchengladbach
