Borussia Dortmund are set to face VfB Stuttgart in the DFB-Pokal on Wednesday. The Black and Yellows will be out to make amends for their performance against the same opponents in the league last month.
With Bayern out of the competition, Borussia Dortmund will be confident about their chances of winning the Pokal this season, but the in-form Stuttgart will offer them with a tough assignment on Wednesday.

Borussia Dortmund were without some of their starters against Bayer Leverkusen and will hope to welcome back Niklas Süle and Ramy Bensebaini into the squad on Wednesday. Here we take a look at how Borussia Dortmund could line up for their DFB-Pokal tie against Stuttgart.
Goalkeeper: Gregor Kobel
