Having started two games (Gladbach and Madrid) in the space of three days, Mario Götze has not joined the squad in Augsburg. In addition, the former world champion has declined to represent Germany over the international break following consultation with his coaches.
Peter Bosz commented: "We need to be careful. It's important that he doesn't get injured again. I'm happy that he's not playing for the national team again just yet."
There are five changes to the XI that started against Madrid in the Champions League, with Bartra, Weigl, Dahoud, Kagawa and Pulisic replacing Toprak, Sahin, Götze, Castro and Philipp. Reus, Guerreiro, Schürrle, Rode and Durm are all still sidelined with injuries.
The line-up: Bürki – Piszczek, Sokratis, Bartra, Toljan – Weigl – Dahoud, Kagawa – Yarmolenko, Aubameyang, Pulisic
The substitutes: Weidenfeller, Zagadou, Sancho, Sahin, Philipp, Castro, Toprak (br)
