Borussia's U19s need only one win from their final two UEFA Youth League group games in order to progress to the next round. The first opportunity to pick up three points comes on Wednesday when they play Sporting CP in Lisbon (kick-off 16:00 CET). Coach Mike Tullberg said: "We don't have to win but we want to."
The Black & Yellows have nominated a squad consisting solely of U19s and have foregone U23 players. "The boys who have flown to Lisbon with us have earned it," said Tullberg, adding: "We know how difficult it will be, because Sporting's team have a lot of quality." But captain Dennis Lütke-Frie and his team-mates will fancy their chances and can look back on a phenomenal record: since Mike Tullberg took over the reins, the U19s have won every away game. They will be hoping to keep it that way in the Portuguese capital. (wiwi)
