Hansi Flick makes two changes to his squad after their loss to Frankfurt as he brings in Goretzka and Musiala. Roca and Choupo-Moting start on the bench, made up of just six substitutes.

Simone Inzaghi makes just one change to the squad that beat Sampdoria this weekend. Lazzari enters the starting lineup for Lulic, who falls on the bench.
