Son Heung-Min, Kieran Trippier and Eric Dier could return for the tough Champions League fixture in Germany, with Vincent Janssen, Kyle Walker and Toby Alderweireld missing out.
South Korean international Son, who was a substitute during his sides previous encounter might start in midweek after being the star performer for the north London in recent weeks.
Mauricio Pochettino is likely to continue with his rotation of full-backs with Trippier coming in for Walker at right-back.
Versatile defender Dier could start at centre-back, alongside Jan Vertonghen, after regular starter Alderweireld was forced off injured at the Hawthorns on Saturday.
