The whole history of official matches between these teams consists only from the first leg match, which took place a week ago. During that game Dortmund showed absolute dominance over the opponent and won the game creating a series of 8 matches without a loss. Now the team has all the chances to win its place in the next round, taking into account Sahin’s return from injury.

However, Porto missed two of its main players Maxi Pereira and Danilo due to suspensions. Now both of them are available for the second leg home game against the Germans.

Coach Jose Peseiro before the match,

“What we trust the most is ourselves. We believe in the potential of our players and we have 90 minutes to recover from a two goals disadvantage. We want to defend well and attack well, both as a team, but the only way to beat Borussia Dortmund is if there’s individual and team endurance”.

We want to win and we are approaching this match as if it were 0-0.”
