    Put the UEFA CL Quarter-final in the title. Also add the CET time and date(d/m/y) in the title.

    OT

    Tough match, with our recent results, it can really go either way.

    Don't think we will be able to keep a clean sheet, we need the 2 goal advantage for sure, could not have asked for something more since our tormentor of last year Lewandowski is missing and hope we make the best use of whatever advantages we have.

    Hope Ancelotti does not start Xabi !!

    Why the pessimism dude? We have been pretty strong in UCL, don't think we can eff this up in our home ground, surely the refs won't fnck us since this is not barca we are playing against.

    It's not the refs i'm worried about it's Ancelotti.

    That said we should win this game with the right lineup..

    I haven't watched BVB in a while. Did they change anything in their tactics/style?

    Same here, only that they are missing more than half of their starting 11 from last year, just hope they don't spring any surprise on us.

    We gave up possesion of the ball for even more intensive pressing and quicker transition from defence to attack. It sometimes backfires when we play defensive-minded teams. I think Klopp's intention was to prepare this Dortmund side for games like this one. He wanted us to feel comfortable without the ball, wait for opponents mistakes and make a quick attack.

    It kind of sounds like our style of playing football perfectly counters your style of playing football but with our injuries and lack of stability this season its visible that there often is a lack of chemistry between certain players.

    You know, its kind of like in Pokemon - you have a fire pokemon and we have a water pokemon so in theory we have it better but your pokemon is level 100 and ours is 50. :D

    Can't wait to get a convincing win over BvB so as to somewhat get over the drawbacks of past week.

    Not really. We used to open threads 4-5 days before the match before. Lately we've just been lazy :D.

    You weren't a member last time we played Dortmund. I'm trying to do a reverse jinx after @s7kru infamous "we will win this comfortably." :D

    All of us hope so, but he is going to start.I'm 100% convinced that Carlo would not trust the trio Illara/Isco-Modric-Angel for one of the most crucial matches of this season.

    Huge. Gotta get it done. Ronaldo needs to elevate his teammates and lead the way.

    The tie against Borussia was where Isco became a household name last season with Malaga. I wonder if he might have a positive role to play in the outcome of it this season?
