Stuttgart vs Borussia Dortmund build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
With just seven games left in the Bundesliga season, promoted side Stuttgart are still in with a chance of European football. Pellegrino Matarazzo’s men are currently eighth, four points behind sixth-placed Bayer Leverkusen in the Europa Conference League play-off qualification spot. However, if the winner of the DFB-Pokal have already secured European qualification through the league, that Conference League spot would drop down to seventh, and Stuttgart are level on points with Union Berlin (and Borussia Monchengladbach in ninth). Stuttgart go into this game in good form, losing just one of their past seven Bundesliga matches with that coming against Bayern Munich, but at home they are unbeaten in six.
Borussia Dortmund will have got used to being regulars in the Champions League, but their hopes of returning to the competition next season are fading with each week. Terzic’s men have managed just one win in their past four Bundesliga matches, losing two including a 2-1 defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt at the weekend that allowed the Eagles to open up a seven-point gap. Dortmund’s route through the Champions League may also be closing soon, as they were beaten 2-1 by Manchester City in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final. However, with an away goal, the tie is still there for the taking, something that could sway how Dortmund approach this Bundesliga fixture.
- Stuttgart (vs Werder Bremen): Kobel; Mavropanos, Anton, Kempf; Coulibaly, Castro, Endo, Sosa; Forster, Klimowicz; Kalajdzic.
- Borussia Dortmund (vs Manchester City): Hitz; Bauza, Hummels, Akanji, Guerreiro; Bellingham, Can, Dahoud; Knauff, Haaland, Reus.
Stuttgart have no fresh injury concerns but remain without Orel Mangala, Nicolas Gonzalez and the impressive Silas Wamangituka. Dortmund are still missing Youssoufa Moukoko, Jadon Sancho, Marcel Schmelzer, Dan-Axel Zagadou and Axel Witsel while Ansgar Knauff is nursing a knock.

Players to watch:
- Stuttgart: Silas Wamangituka has been the headline grabber for Stuttgart this season and was Dortmund’s bane in the 5-1 win earlier this season, but Sasa Kalajdzic will be the biggest threat this weekend. The Austrian striker is Stuttgart’s top scorer in the Bundesliga this season with 13 goals in 26 games, two more than Wamangituka in fewer minutes. Kalajdzic is also in decent form, recently scoring eight goals in seven games from the end of January to mid-March. The 4-0 defeat to Bayern Munich brought that run of scoring in seven consecutive games to an end, but Kaladjzic will be hoping he is still hot enough to put Dortmund to the sword.
- Borussia Dortmund: We could talk about Erling Haaland for a direct head-to-head with Kalajdzic this weekend, but this weekend could a game for the likes of Julian Brandt to impress if Dortmund choose to rotate. The German midfielder has struggled for a significant run of game time in the Bundesliga this season, with 10 of his 25 league appearances coming from the bench, in a variety of positions across the front line. However, he has started two of Dortmund’s past three Bundesliga games and scored on the first of those, in a 2-0 win over Hertha Berlin, where he as playing behind Haaland. It was just Brandt’s second league goal of the season so far and there may not be a more important time for him to take his tally up as Dortmund look up the table.
