Borussia Dortmund vs. Malaga: Lineups

David Ramos

Dortmund have been boosted by the return of one regular starter while Malaga are missing two key players thanks to card related suspensions.

Jurgen Klopp wasn't able to restore Mats Hummels to the starting lineup but winger Jakub Blaszczykowski returns after missing the first leg, replacing Kevin Grosskreutz. Sebastien Kehl makes way for Sven Bender in the midfield but other than that Klopp's lineup is unchanged with Robert Lewandowski up front, supported by the talented duo of Marco Reus and Mario Götze.

Manuel Pellegrini has been forced to deal with two key suspensions. Defender Weligton is out, replaced by Sergio Sánchez while Joaquín takes over in the deep midfield for Manuel Iturra. Javier Saviola has also been dropped, with Julio Baptiste apparently leading the Malaga attack.

Borussia Dortmund starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Roman Weidenfeller; Lukasz Piszczek, Felipe Santana, Neven Subotic, Marcel Schmelzer; Sven Bender, Ilkay Gündogan; Marco Reus, Mario Götze, Jakub Blaszczykowski; Robert Lewandowski.

Malaga starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Wilfredo Caballero; Jesus Gámez, Martin Demichelis, Sergio Sánchez, Vitorino Antunes; Ignacio Camacho, Jeremy Toulalan; Joaquín, Duda, Isco; Julio Baptista.
