Defenders: Marius Wolf, Niklas Süle, Mats Hummels, Ramy Bensebaini
The main change that is expected to be made in the back four is the introduction of Marius Wolf in place of the injured Julian Ryerson at right-back. The Norwegian international hasn’t been able to train without discomfort this week, Edin Terzic revealed on Thursday.
Mats Hummels had another brilliant game last week and is expected to partner Niklas Süle at centre-back. Despite being put under constant pressure from the opposition, the duo helped their team keep a clean sheet. And they will once again have a crucial role to play on Saturday.
Ramy Bensebaini has settled in well at his new club and is expected to keep his place at left-back. Terzic will be hoping for a bit more decisiveness from him going forward against Bochum.
