Team News

Due to injuries sustained in Terzic's last match in charge, Dortmund will be without Marwin Hitz, Mateu Morey, Youssoufa Moukoko, Dan-Axel Zagadou, Axel Witsel, and Marcel Schmelzer.

Although the 35-year-old has been suffering from a muscular injury in recent weeks, veteran defender Lukasz Piszczek will aim for a farewell start at right-back before his retirement this summer.

Meanwhile, Leverkusen will be without suspended duo Nadiem Amiri and Edmond Tapsoba, who both received their fifth bookings of the season last week against Union Berlin.

As Leverkusen interim manager, Sven Bender and Demarai Gray are expected to play in Wolf's final first XI.

A long treatment table, however, includes Exequiel Palacios, Daley Sinkgraven, Lars Bender, Leon Bailey, Lucas Alario, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Santiago Arias, and Julian Baumgartlinger.

Due to an ankle injury, Patrik Schick is a doubt and may not be risked ahead of representing the Czech Republic at Euro 2020, with Karim Bellarabi replacing him on the right wing and Wirtz playing as a false nine.

Borussia Dortmund possible starting lineup:
Burki; Hummels, Akanji, Piszczek, Guerreiro; Can, Bellingham, Dahoud; Sancho, Haaland, Reus

Bayer Leverkusen possible starting lineup:
Hradecky; Bender, Dragovic, Tah; Diaby, Aranguiz, Demirbay, Wendell; Bellarabi, Wirtz, Gray
