    Reus and Witsel are the two starters who can't be even nearly replaced. Reus is too old for the next WC, so let him rest and let the German's find their next generation.

    I would add Burki, Hakimi and Diallo/Akanji to that.

    Witsel is injured and will miss at least the Union Berlin match.
    As long as Union are fresh and possibly more dangerous in counter situations, I wouldn't mind a Weigl/Delaney midfield for the first 60 minutes. But that is solely for defensive reasons. Depending on the situation, a 3 man midfield of Weigl, Dahoud and Brandt would be interesting for offensive purposes as well but that's probably not likely if Hazard can't play.

    So the Belgian players are all out. That's great.

    I'd rather see Brandt, Dahoud and Weigl than see Delaney at any point other than to defend a slim lead.

    Whatever the lineup, I just want three points.

    I would love to see a lopsided midfield with Weigl, Brandt and Dahoud. That's a midfield that can cope with any in the world.

    Schulz came back with an injury from NT duty, some kind of ligament damage (partial tear if that's the expression in English). He joins Akanji who got injured as well.

    This is really bad news. Our squad depth is being whittled away. I guess we will have to play Hakimi there or perhaps Raphael. He played there for Portugal.

    I wonder who we will play at the back, Weigl or Zagadou. Hopefully no more injuries. I think the likes of Brandt could have done with staying in Dortmund and playing a couple of friendlies.

    I would be fine with Raphael and Daxo playing in defense under the circumstances. At least the buildup should be less ugly, in theory. Hakimi on the right side in place of LP.

    I hope we just go with natural positional players. Gurreiro at LB and DAZ at CB. And Hakimi at RB.

    Play Weigl next to Brandt in the middle. Play Dahoud slightly ahead of them. Shift Reus to the left.

    If not I'll be fine with Gotze in the no. 10 in place of Mo.

    So no Witsel, Hazard, Akanji and Schulz. Awesome.

    I just don't want to see Schmelzer anywhere on the pitch.

    I would be happy to see this team as well.

    -----Burki-----
    --Hakimi--Zagadou--Hummels--Raphael
    --Sancho---Weigl---Dahoud---Brandt
    ‐--‐-‐---‐-------------------Reus-------
    ‐----------------------------Alcacer-------

    Reus and Brandt can rotate on the left. Gotze needs to come on when Brandt is exhausted at 60 minutes.

    Dahoud is best when he plays deeper not in an advanced position and Brandt is best when he can create chances.
