Atletico have a narrow lead to protect, having claimed a 2-1 victory in the first leg at Wanda Metropolitano, but it is delicately poised ahead of what should be a fascinating contest at Signal Iduna Park.

Dortmund were comfortably second-best in the first half of their quarter-final with Atletico, and goals from Rodrigo De Paul and Samuel Lino sent the Spanish side two goals ahead. At the interval, it was difficult to see a route back, but BVB were much improved in the second half.

Sebastien Haller came up with the visitors’ goal in the 81st minute of the game at Wanda Matropolitano, and it is now delicately poised, with Dortmund trailing in the tie but now having home advantage.

Edin Terzic’s side will enter this contest off the back of a 2-1 victory over Borussia Monchengladbach in the Bundesliga, with the result leaving them fifth in the table, level on points with fourth-placed RB Leipzig.

BVB navigated their way past PSV Eindhoven in the last-16 stage of this season’s competition, securing a 3-1 aggregate victory, and they also impressed in the group stage, finishing ahead of Paris Saint-Germain to top Group F, with AC Milan dropping into the Europa League.

Dortmund have not progressed past the quarter-finals of the Champions League since famously reaching the final in 2012-13, eventually losing 2-1 to Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich, and they were eliminated from last season’s tournament in the round of 16 by Chelsea.

Atletico will feel that they should have been out of sight in the first leg considering their dominance in the opening 45 minutes, and it remains to be seen whether they will be made to pay in the second leg.

The Red and Whites have responded impressively to their 3-0 defeat to Barcelona before the international break, winning their last two in the league against Villarreal and Girona either side of the victory over Dortmund.

Atletico beat Girona 3-1 in La Liga on Saturday, and they are fourth in the table, five points ahead of fifth-placed Athletic Bilbao, with the team in charge of their own destiny when it comes to the top four.

Diego Simeone’s side impressively overcame Inter Milan in the last-16 stage of this season’s competition, winning a penalty shootout after the two sides were level at 2-2 after the second leg.

Meanwhile, the capital giants went unbeaten in the group stage, picking up 14 points from their six matches to top a section which involved Lazio, Feyenoord and Celtic.

Atletico failed to make it out of the group stage of last season’s Champions League, while they have not been past the final eight since featuring against Real Madrid in the semi-finals back in 2016-17.
