Bayer Leverkusen have numerous players out through injury including Karim Benzema, Stefan Kiessling and Kevin Kampl.
Julian Brandt and Admir Mehmedi have the chance to start.
Monaco have no fresh injury concerns so Radamel Falcao may be rested.

Roger Schmidt will use this game to gain some momentum in the season. Leverkusen are currently ninth in the Bundesliga and have not won in three domestic matches.
Monaco are looking good under Leonardo Jardim and are going strong in both Ligue 1 and the Champions League. After topping the group they could be the surprise team of the season.

Monaco are unbeaten in eight Champions League games.
Leverkusen have drawn all but one game in this season’s competition.
In the reverse fixture the game ended 1-1.
