Borussia Dortmund sit top of Group F ahead of their meeting with closest challengers Lazio on Wednesday. "I'm convinced that next week we'll produce a similar kind of performance to today and keep the points here," said Roman Bürki following the final whistle in the match against Brugge.
BVB now have nine points on the board after racking up their third consecutive win in the competition. Meanwhile, their Italian rivals sit in second place with eight points after today's 3-1 victory over Zenit St. Petersburg.
Borussia Dortmund will go into their Matchday 5 meeting with Lazio on Wednesday knowing that a win would confirm them as group winners. But even a draw would keep them top of the group and wrap up qualification for the knockout stages with a game to spare. Because in that case Brugge could still theoretically draw level on points with Borussia, but would not be able to overtake them on account of their inferior head-to-head record. (br)
