As well as Axel Witsel (fibre tear in adductor), Lukasz Piszczek (fitness following heel complaints) and Maximilian Philipp (torn lateral collateral ligament in knee), BVB will be without Mario Götze and Paco Alcácer for tonight's match at Hertha Berlin.

Götze has sustained a rib injury, while Alcácer is suffering from a pulled muscle. Once the match in the capital is over, the Black & Yellows will have two weeks to recover from their injuries while club football pauses for the international break. Domestic duties will resume for BVB when they host VfL Wolfsburg on Saturday 30 March (15:30 CET).

The starting XI: Bürki – Wolf, Akanji, Zagadou, Diallo – Delaney, Weigl – Sancho, Reus, Pulisic – Bruun Larsen (br)
