Borussia Dortmund looks to set their eyes on a spot in the Champions League quarter-finals when they host Sevilla in the second leg of their last 16 ties. The match schedules for Tuesday night at the Signal Iduna Park, with kickoff at 11 pm.
The German giants registered a 3-2 win over the Europa League holders in the first leg last month and are therefore favourites to advance to the competition’s final eight.
Dortmund fell behind Sevilla in the first leg at Estadio Ramon, but Mahmoud Dahoud levelled the scores in the 19th minute before Erling Haaland netted a brace to make it 3-1.
Sevilla scored a second late on through Luuk de Jong to hand themselves a chance ahead of their second leg. However, the Yellow and Blacks fancy their chances of finishing the job in their stadium.
The side enters the match on the back of an exciting 4-2 loss to Bayern Munich that saw Haaland net a brace and Lewandowski a hattrick. The defeat saw the side drop sixth while four points off the top four.
Sevilla is not yet out of this competition, but enter the clash on the back of disappointing results losing four of their last five matches in all competitions. It involves a shocking 2-1 loss to Elche in La Liga on Saturday.
