Full Borussia Dortmund squad available to face Chelsea in the Champions League
The Borussia Dortmund squad available to face Chelsea for the second leg of the Round of 16 Champions League tie has been revealed.
Edin Terzić’s side make the trip to England with a narrow lead against the two-time Champions League winners. Dortmund are one-goal ahead heading into the second leg at Stamford Bridge after Karim Adeyemi’s first leg winner last month at the Signal Iduna Park.
The Bundesliga outfit have won their last 11 games in a row, sitting second in the league, and will be hopeful of extending the winning run to 12 matches on Tuesday night to knock Chelsea out of Europe and book their place in the quarter-finals.
Terzić won’t have Adeyemi for the second leg, but is hoping to have goalkeeper Gregor Köbel available for selection after he suffered a thigh injury prior to their 2-1 win over RB Leipzig.
“Gregor has been receiving treatment in Dortmund for the last two days,” confirmed Terzić in his pre-match press conference.
“He has felt better every day. We will work with him and decide after the (Tuesday training) session if he can play. After this game, we want to be among the eight most successful teams in Europe this season.”
Emre Can is relishing Tuesday’s European affair in the capital, adding: “We have worked hard to get to where we are. We weren’t satisfied with the first half of the season. We are fighting as a team: we’ve shown that in the past few weeks.”
Donyell Malen has travelled with the squad despite an ankle sprain, while Julia Ryerson is suspended for the visitors.
As relayed by BVB Buzz, Dortmund have brought a 24-man squad to England for the clash at Stamford Bridge.
