After last week's 3-0 defeat at Borussia Dortmund, Wolfsburg coach Valerien Ismael may consider switching from a 3-5-2 to a 4-2-3-1, in which case right-back Christian Träsch and defensive midfielder Riechedly Bazoer could come into the team. Daniel Didavi is close to full fitness, and may replace Paul Seguin, who is doubtful after limping off against Dortmund. Iran midfielder Ashkan Dejagah, yet to make his debut after joining in January, will be sidelined for the next month with a calf injury, but Ismael has various attacking options, including Paul-Georges Ntep and Borja Mayoral.

The Danish international, who made it 2-0 with a fantastic free-kick, sustained concussion and cheek fractures after a collision with Jhon Cordoba. With captain Clemens Fritz suspended, youngsters Maximilian Eggestein and Milos Veljkovic are expected to start together in midfield, while Felix Wiedwald keeps his place in goal after a superb showing against Mainz.
