Erling Haaland stole the show, of course. Two first-half goals from the Norwegian sensation put Dortmund in charge, though Luuk de Jong's late effort reduced the Bundesliga side's advantage to 3-2 and gave Sevilla a sniff.

Expert predictions

James Thorogood, Dortmund reporter: Aiming to reach the quarter-finals for the first since 2017, the importance of Dortmund's win at Sevilla has been amplified by a spate of injuries to key players. Raphaël Guerreiro and Jadon Sancho are expected to miss the second leg, as they did Saturday's 4-2 reverse to Bayern München. BVB threw away a two-goal lead in that game and will not want a repeat on Tuesday, with continental success offering a silver lining for their season.

Simon Hart, Sevilla reporter: Sevilla arrive in Dortmund on the back of three straight defeats – their worst streak under Julen Lopetegui, which includes last Wednesday’s Copa del Rey semi-final loss at Barcelona. That said, a long unbeaten run counted for nothing in the first leg, so the hope is for another result to turn domestic form on its head – this time in their favour. Goalkeeper Bounou, absent from the last two games with a finger injury, is in the travelling party while Marcos Acuña and Lucas Ocampos, missing from the first leg, are back to bring, hopefully, more menace from the wings.

Edin Teržić, Dortmund caretaker coach: "We expect a very good performance from Sevilla, even if their recent results have not been so good. We are preparing for them to show a very different level of intensity in Dortmund. We miss our fans, but unfortunately we have to accept the situation and wait for the day when they are back."

Julen Lopetegui, Sevilla coach: "We come here with desire and enthusiasm, and to try with all our strength. We know we have a game ahead of us that will create expectation. Dortmund are a great team and have very good players. Haaland is a world-class player."
