Borussia Dortmund vs Sevilla: Line-up, UCL prediction and result

Erling Haaland is on the goal trail again in the Uefa Champions League first knockout round. Borussia Dortmund face Sevilla in the last 16 second leg.

Borussia Dortmund and Seville clash in the Uefa Champions League first knockout round second leg at Signal Iduna Park on Tuesday.

Erling Braut Haaland scored twice as the Bundesliga side pinched a 3-2 first leg lead at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium three weeks ago.

Europe’s hottest prospect was at the double to add to an early equaliser from Mahmoud Dahoud, after Suso’s deflected goal put the Spanish side into a seventh-minute lead.

Luuk de Jong bookended the tie for the serial Europa League champions when he popped up with an 84th-minute goal to keep his side competitive.

Only the three away goals to contend with now, then.

The home side could well have Roman Burki back in goal for the second leg, with the keeper on his way back from injury.

English whizkid Jadon Sancho is a big miss through injury, with Raphael Guerreiro, Axel Witsel and Marcel Schmelzer all joining the England international in the treatment room.

Boss Edin Terzic may also have to make do without the services of Giovanni Reyna, who wasn’t fit for action in the Bundesliga at the weekend.

Aleix Vidal looks to be the only major injury concern for the visitors, with Jules Kounde and Bono cleared for the trip to Germany.

Coach Julen Lopetegui has a clean bill of health apart from that, with the La Liga club likely needing to win by two clear goals on the night to sneak into the quarter-finals.
