Borussia Dormund disappointed its fans over the weekend after boring a goalless draw in their stadium against Cologne.

Jurgen Klopp will throw all the best available in the second leg with Juventus with the thought of success that to rank his team forward.
The derby against Juve will be missed of Nuri Sahin, Lucas Piscek and Kevin Groskrojc because of injuries. The absence of the latter two is uncomfortable for Klopp as the coach of Borussia relies mainly on the position of right-back. In view of this, in the starting lineup again we will see the young Oliver Kirch. Kevin Kampl will be probably start the holder because of his better form, and Shinji Kagava will remain on the bench - the experts think.

After he was punished for the visit in Palermo, Paul Pogba returned rested in the starting lineup for Max Allegri. Andrea Pirlo, however, will miss the visit in the Dormund because of an injury.

The Spaniard will partner with Carlos Tevez, while at the more posterior positions will act Arturo Vidal.
Juventus will start the match with a solid defense. The hosts showed over the weekend that the difficult schedule and probably defense overran and now you will have problems. In view of this, we believe that we will see a few goals in rematch between Borussia Dormund and Juventus. Our soccer prediction is that there will be fewer than 2.5 goals in total.
