For Borussia's U19s, it has the hallmarks of a final: if the Black & Yellows come out on top against Besiktas this Tuesday (kick-off 14:00 CET at the Brackel youth training centre), they will qualify for the play-off that precedes the last 16 of the UEFA Youth League. Should they draw or lose, they will be eliminated.

"I expect my team to make it clear that they want to stay in this competition," declared head coach Mike Tullberg. With the exception of Lion Semic and Samuel Bamba, he has the full U19 squad at his disposal. (wiwi)
