Wolfsburg vs Borussia Dortmund

Wolfsburg's defence is ravaged by injuries, and head coach Andries Jonker has opted for a defensive partnership of Paul Verhaegh and teenager center-back Felix Uduokhai. Dortmund's list of absentees is equally long. Star attacker Marco Reus is still out after hurting his knee in the German Cup final in May. Andre Schurrle, Julian Weigl and Raphael Guerreiro are also out, while Ousmane Dembele, who has gone AWOL, has been suspended from the club.

The good news for Dortmund head coach Peter Bosz, who makes his Bundesliga debut, is that Mario Gotze is available after having recovered from a long-standing metabolic disorder. Wolfsburg have lost all four previous meetings against Dortmund, including a 5-1 and 3-0 last season.
