Kick-off is set for 7:45pm BST. Live coverage of the game is on Sky Sports 2 and Sky Sports 2 HD.


Dortmund managed to post a comeback victory at home against VfL Wolfsburg in their previous Bundesliga fixture. The hosts were trailing to a first half goal from Ivica Olic, but Robert Lewandowski restored parity six minutes into the second half.

Marco Reus then sealed the victory netting the winner in the 77th minute. The result helped Dortmund go three points ahead of third-placed Schakle, with 58 points after 29 matches.

Real Madrid humbled Jurgen Klopp's side in the first leg at the Santiago Bernabeu. Bale opened the scoring in the third minute and Isco doubled the tally before the half-hour mark. Cristiano Ronaldo added a third in the second half to ensure the hosts take a 3-0 advantage going into the second leg.

Carlo Ancelotti's side come into this game after thumping Real Sociedad, 4-0, in their La Liga fixture at the Anoeta Stadium last Saturday. Asier Illarramendi opened the scoring on the cusp of half-time and Gareth Bale doubled the lead in the 66th minute before Pepe and Alvaro Morata netted late in the game to complete the rout.

The result kept the Spanish capital outfit in third spot in the league table after 32 matches with 76 points, three less than leaders and rivals Atletico Madrid.

Dortmund have a mountain to climb and must go all out and attack as they need at least three goals if they intend to throw Real Madrid out of the competition. However, the La Liga outfit will maintain their no-holds-barred approach as they look to maintain their unbeaten record in this season's Champions League, thus booking their place in the semi-final.

What Managers Say

Jurgen Klopp: "I don't think it is difficult to choose an approach for tomorrow's game. We got a result in Madrid which does not leave us with much choice. As always, we will give our all to win. In Madrid, we did not play well, but despite that we had many good chances. We did not defend well, we did not use our chances – that's what we want to change."

Carlo Ancelotti: "We're only thinking about the win and we have to play our best football and try to repeat the game we had in the first leg. Our idea is the same as always: try to play our game, which is attacking, while also defending together. If you focus on doing your job well you do not think about failure."
