Match facts: Dortmund v Málaga


UEFA Champions League statistics
• Dortmund have scored 97 goals in the UEFA Champions League, group stage to final, and conceded 199 in UEFA competition.

• Dortmund are the only unbeaten side left in the competition. They have been caught offside ten times and collected seven yellow cards, both fewer than any other team in the last eight.

• Roman Weidenfeller and Marcel Schmelzer have played every minute of Jürgen Klopp's team's campaign.

• Kevin Grosskreutz's next yellow card will incur a ban.

• Robert Lewandowski has scored in each of his last ten Bundesliga games, a club record. He has scored 14 goals in his past 15 outings for Dortmund, also registering two in three international appearances during that time.

• Klopp made seven changes to the side that started at Málaga for Saturday's 4-2 win at home to FC Augsburg as Jonas Hofmann and Leonardo Bittencourt made their full Bundesliga debuts. Mitchell Langerak made only his second appearance this season in goal as he deputised for Weidenfeller, rested due to a back problem.

• Dortmund have won their last five home games, scoring at least three goals each time.

• Schmelzer has been wearing a face mask since breaking his nose at VfB Stuttgart on 30 March.

• Mats Hummels has been out of action since partially tearing ankle ligaments in the 2-1 defeat by FC Schalke 04 on 9 March. Jakub Błaszczykowski has sat out the last two games with a muscle strain.

• Marco Reus scored every goal in a 3-0 win against Eintracht Frankfurt on 16 February, becoming the first German player to record a hat-trick at home for Dortmund since Günter Breitzke in 1986.

• Reus (2), Mario Götze and İlkay Gündoğan all scored in Germany's 4-1 FIFA World Cup qualifying victory at home to Kazakhstan on 26 March. Gündoğan also hit the woodwork twice, Götze once.


UEFA Champions League statistics
• Málaga were the fourth debutants to win their first three games in the UEFA Champions League, after AC Milan (1992/93), Paris Saint-Germain FC (1994/95) and Juventus (1995/96).

• The Boquerones began this campaign with five successive clean sheets, qualifying included, and have conceded just 13 goals in 27 fixtures in UEFA competition. Málaga have conceded six goals this season, the joint lowest total of the teams still involved along with Juventus.

• The Spanish side's pass completion rate (65%) shots on goal (53), wide (36) and corners won (38) are all the lowest among the quarter-finalists.

• Manuel Iturra and Weligton are suspended after their first-leg bookings; Martín Demichelis and Sergio Sánchez will incur a suspension with their next yellow cards.

• Featuring just three of the side that started the first leg against Dortmund – Antunes, Weligton and Iturra – Málaga lost 4-2 to fourth-place Real Sociedad de Fútbol on Saturday. Pellegrini's men have suffered five defeats in their nine fixtures after a game in the UEFA Champions League proper this season, winning only twice.

• Eliseu has been out with strained knee ligaments since 3 February but returned to team training on Sunday.

• Júlio Baptista's goal against Rayo Vallecano de Madrid on 30 March was the striker's first in 546 days; he has made only nine appearances in the last 18 months because of Achilles and hamstring problems.

• Málaga went ten Liga games without losing at the beginning of the season, their longest unbeaten start since 2002/03.
