Starting XI: Dortmund vs Real

Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund welcome European champions Real Madrid to Signal Iduna Park on matchday two of the UEFA Champions League – here is how the teams will take to the field!

Dortmund will be in search of their fourth straight home victory over Los Blancos in the prestigious European competition, the last of which came in the 2013/14 campaign.

BVB got their Champions League campaign off to a flyer, seeing off Polish side Legia Warsaw 6-0 two weeks ago.

The Spanish giants also won their opening game of this season's competition, narrowly beating Portuguese side Sporting Lisbon 2-1 thanks to a late Alvaro Morata goal.

Dortmund's record against Spanish opposition at home is quite impressive, having managed to win seven, draw two and lose just two matches against teams from Spain at Signal Iduna Park.

Los Blancos' overall record away in Germany is quite appalling – they have playes 29 matches in total there, winning only four, drawing six and losing 19 encounters.  

After being substituted on the weekend by manager Zinedine Zidane, Real star Cristiano Ronaldo (Marshalls' odds: Ronaldo to score at 1.9) will be eager to set things straight, while African star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Marshalls' odds: Aubameyang to score at 2) will be expected to hit the back of the net for the Germans.

Here is how the sides will line up:

Borussia Dortmund: Bürki; Schmelzer, Ginter, Sokratis, Piszczek; Weigl, Guerreiro; Castro, Götze, Dembele; Aubameyang.

Real Madrid: Navas; Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Danilo; Kroos, Modric; Bale, Rodriguez, Ronaldo; Benzema.
