Foot problems will prevent shot-stopper Roman Bürki from lining up between the sticks when BVB take on AC Milan in today's friendly (13:20 CET, live on Sport1), while Marcel Schmelzer and Ömer Toprak are unavailable too.

The captain and the new signing have already flown back to Germany. Schmelzer is heading home to have x-rays taken of his damaged ankle, while Toprak has been forced to return early due to visa problems.

Shinji Kagawa is back in the squad for the first time after overcoming a shoulder injury, though he is not expected to feature.

The starting XI: Weidenfeller – Piszczek, Sokratis, Bartra, Zagadou – Sahin – Castro, Rode – Pulisic, Aubameyang, Dembélé (br)
