Gabonese striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will not be a part of Friday night’s Bundesliga tie against Stuttgart after being left out of the travelling squad. The 28-year-old reportedly arrived late to training by as much as 30 minutes.

Peter Bosz has also said prior to the decision to drop Auba that André Schürrle is ready to play 90 minutes.
