Thomas Tuchel, Dortmund coach
Losing our No1 goalkeeper Roman Bürki is one of the worst things that could happen, with all due respect to, and trust in, [replacement] Roman Weidenfeller. It's the one position you never usually change.

We are already through to the next round and we will rotate some players and bring in fresh faces. We might have needed to do so even if we didn't have enough points.

With their change of coach, lots of things have changed at Legia: they used to play 4-1-4-1, now they have two holding midfielders. They have the confidence that only comes from winning games, so we will see a different side.

Jacek Magiera, Legia coach
We have to put [the matchday one defeat] to the back of our minds. We don't want to think about that any more. We are a different team now, even if the same players are playing. We are optimistic.

I saw Borussia against Bayern as well as their two previous Bundesliga games. They are a very good side, but we knew that already. We will have to put in a top performance to get a result.

It's important for us to build on our recent displays. If we avoid defeat, that would be great.

Reporter's view: Steffen Potter (@UEFAcomSteffenP)
BVB are going into this game after a massive win against Bayern, but Tuchel says that "legs and brains were tired" in Monday's training session. With his team already into the next round, he confirmed he will rotate so it is hard to predict what Dortmund side we will see on Tuesday. Expect Legia to arrive full of confidence after their surprise coup against the holders and they are surely out to prove a point as well after their 6-0 drubbing on matchday one. It has all the ingredients of a much more open contest.

Did you know?
Magiera was on the bench when Legia last visited Germany, for a 0-0 draw at  Schalke in the 2002/03 UEFA Cup second round. He had previously appeared as an 87th-minute substitute in Legia's 3-2 first-leg defeat. Read more in our extensive match background.
