Sahin: We Still Have A Small Chance

Borussia Dortmund midfielder Nuri Sahin believes there is still a chance his side can reach the UEFA Champions League semi-finals despite losing 3-0 to Real Madrid in the first leg.
 
Goals from Gareth Bale, Isco and Cristiano Ronaldo condemned the Bundesliga outfit to defeat but Sahin believes there is still a small chance of qualifying, especially with Robert Lewandowski returning.
 
"We are 3-0 down in the tie but we still have a small chance, our coach told us just that after the game," said Sahin
 
"We missed [Robert] Lewandowski today and we are happy he will be back next week but it will be another tough game nonetheless.
 
"Last year we won the [semi-final] first leg 4-1 and the second game here was very difficult - we lost 2-0 and almost conceded a third - so we know that anything can happen.
 
"It was a difficult game for us. We knew that Madrid would bring their quality and speed but we also knew we would have chances, which in the end, we didn't take."
