Dortmund 'still in the race' against Juventus

Jürgen Klopp told UEFA.com that Borussia Dortmund remain firmly in the hunt for a quarter-final place, despite a 2-1 loss at Juventus, but rued his side's defending in Turin.

Jürgen Klopp told UEFA.com that "at 2-1 we are still in the race" after the first leg of Borussia Dortmund's round of 16 tie against Juventus.

Borussia Dortmund are "still in the race" for a UEFA Champions League quarter-final berth despite losing 2-1 at Juventus in the first instalment of their round of 16 tie.

That is the view of Schwarzgelben coach Jürgen Klopp, who rued the failings that led to Carlos Tévez and Álvaro Morata scoring the goals in Turin that gave the Bianconeri a slender advantage to take into the return leg on 18 March. "In the first half we played a really good game," said Klopp. "Our defending was not perfect – we made it too easy for Juventus."
