The fourth game scheduled in the Champions League last 16 round this week will take place between Borussia Dortmund and Benfica. As usual, the game starts at 19:45, UK Time.
Dortmund have scored a total of 12 goals in the last three official games and they need to win this duel by at least two goals to qualify in the next round. BVB lost 0-1 to Benfica three weeks ago and they will have a difficult mission for sure. Anyway, the hosts have shown a good form in front of the Yellow Wall, being undefeated this season in the home matches. Gotze, Bender, Sahin, Rode and Reus are still injured and will not feature here.
Benfica will come here without Filipe Augusto, injured, while Grimaldo and Fejsa are doubts. The Lusitans' form is really impressive, winning the last seven official games and keeping five clean sheets. Benfica have a decent advantage after the first leg (1-0) and the most important thing is that they didn't concede a goal in the first leg. Benfica managed to win the last three trips and their last away loss took place on January 30th, 0-1 to Setubal.
