UEFA Champions League: Borussia Dortmund need a miracle against Real Madrid, Chelsea hope to overturn a two-goal deficit against PSG

Borussia Dortmund still have a chance to progress despite trailing 0-3 after the first leg. Jose Mourinho is confident his side will be through to semifinals.

Borussia Dotmund vs Real Madrid
Robert Lewandowski returns to action as he needs to repeat last season’s poker to beat Real Madrid at Signal Iduna Park. However, the hosts will miss a handful of first-string players again and might be vulnerable to sharp attacks of Spanish giants. Still, there is a chance that Cristiano Ronaldo will miss the clash with a knee injury. Marcelo, Jese and Alvaro Arbeloa are also unavailable.

Chelsea vs Paris Saint-Germain
The Blues need to overturn a two-goal deficit at Stamford Bridge to progress to the semis, and Jose Mourinho feels confident his team are capable of doing that: “If Paris are knocked out tomorrow it will be a big disappointment for them; if we are knocked out then it is something that a lot of people are expecting. We have to enjoy the risk of the situation”.

The visitors will play without their key man Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but will be pushed forward by the prospect of reaching the Champions League semi-finals for the first time. “We need to go into the game with the right spirit and the right motivation to qualify. I don’t know what the probability of us going through is, but these percentages are not important – we have a match to play against a very good side and we know what went on in the first leg and we need to learn our lessons from that”, said Laurent Blanc at the press-conference.
