Dortmund can rise to the occasion

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of Dortmund scores
1 of 1

Champions League Group H
BT Sport Extra 2, 7.45pm Wednesday

Apoel's goal led a charmed life when they held Borussia Dortmund to a 1-1 draw in Cyprus 15 days ago and they are unlikely to achieve a similar result in Germany.

The Cypriots are comfortably the weakest team in Group H and are having a tough time in their domestic league.

Since the home draw with Dortmund they have taken just one point from two league games and have dropped to eighth – 11 points off the pace set by leaders AEK.

The Champions League has been a distraction and the strain is taking a toll on their squad with injuries mounting in recent weeks.

Dortmund have also got used to a lengthy injury list and have taken one point from their last three league games.

However, this fixture is critical to their qualification hopes and they should rise to the occasion.

Recommendation
B Dortmund to win to nil
2pts 4-6 general
