Borussia Dortmund face Sevilla in the Champions League tonight as the teams meet in the second leg of their last-16 tie.

The reverse fixture was an entertaining game, with Dortmund emerging victorious to take a 3-2 aggregate lead into this evening’s match. Erling Haaland scored two of the German team’s vital away goals, while Luuk de Jong’s late finish for Sevilla gives the La Liga club a genuine opportunity to advance to the quarter-finals.

But Sevilla, who booked their place in this season’s edition of the competition by lifting the Europa League trophy last term, come into this second leg in underwhelming form. Julen Lopetegui’s players have lost three of the four fixtures they have played since the last meeting with Dortmund, who have won three of their four matches since then.

Prediction

Dortmund aren’t always the best at holding their nerve in moments like this, but if Haaland turns up they should secure safe passage past Sevilla. Dortmund 2-1 Sevilla (5-3 aggregate).
