Neven Subotic is still injured and will be replaced by Felipe Santana.
Sebastian Kehl, Sven Bender and Nuri Sahin compete for the spot alongside Ilkay Gündogan.
Manager Klopp is likely to field the same team as he did in the last game, with no new injury problems.
Leverkusen are second in the Bundesliga and perform on a very high level consistently. A win against their direct rivals would be an enormous step forward.
Dortmund are one point behind Leverkusen and desperately need a result to keep up their very slight chance of putting pressure on Bayern, who are currently eleven points clear at the top of the Bundesliga.
Expect this to be a hard-fought and competitive game. Both teams need a win in order to keep their chance to challenge Bayern for the title alive.
