Berlin - VfL Wolfsburg have included star midfielder Kevin de Bruyne in their squad for Wednesday's German Cup semi-final against third-division giant-killers Arminia Bielefeld.
Wolfsburg travel to Bielefeld on Wednesday for a 'David verses Goliath' cup clash with the hosts having already knocked-out top-tier sides Hertha Berlin, Werder Bremen and Borussia Moenchengladbach in a stellar cup run to the last four.

They are just one more upset from a place in the cup final at Berlin's Olympic Stadium on May 30 while holders Bayern Munich host Borussia Dortmund in Tuesday's other semi-final.
De Bruyne injured his foot in Sunday's 1-0 league defeat at Borussia Moenchengladbach, but will travel with the squad to Bielefeld having netted 10 goals and provided 18 assists in a stellar season.
Wolfsburg are set to finish second in the Bundesliga behind champions Bayern Munich.
"All the players are fit. The cup heals all wounds, so to speak," said Wolfsburg coach Dieter Hecking as his side look to bounce back from their Gladbach defeat.
Third-division leaders Bielefeld are poised for promotion next season and their penalty shoot-out victory over Gladbach earlier this month means Wolfsburg can ill afford to show a lack of respect.
"We're meeting an opponent who is organised, puts in a lot of running and is combative, but it's in our hands," said Hecking.
"We'll need to be patient and calm, Gladbach didn't manage to put tempo in their game (in the quarter-final), which is something we need to avoid."
