All eyes will be on Dortmund and Milan this Tuesday as BVB and Inter look to better each other's results and secure a place in the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League. Standing in the way of the Black & Yellows are Slavia Prague - a team who managed to pick up points in both the San Siro and the Nou Camp! Here we give you the match facts. Please note that a few tickets are still available.
- BVB are currently placed third in the group have seven points, three of which were acquired on Matchday 2 when they travelled to face Slavia in the Czech capital. Achraf Hakimi grabbed both goals (in the 35th and 89th minutes respectively) as the Black & Yellows ran out 2-0 winners. As things stand, Borussia are level on points with Inter Milan, but the Italian side's superiority in the head-to-head match-up means they sit above BVB in second place.
- BVB will have to pick up more points than Inter, who are at home to Barcelona, if they are to have any chance of leapfrogging the Italians and progressing to the Round of 16.
- Slavia have a total of two points, meaning they are rooted to bottom spot regardless of what happens on Matchday 6.
- The Black & Yellows have picked up four points in their two home games in the competition thus far: a 0-0 draw with Barcelona and a 3-2 win against Inter.
- BVB have reached the Round of 16 in five of their last six attempts.
- Borussia's unbeaten run against Czech clubs stretches back nine games. Of these, the Black & Yellows have won six and drawn three. The only home defeat dates back to 1964, when Dukla Prague notched up a 3-1 win in Dortmund.
- Slavia lost all three of their home matches in this season's Champions League: 2-0 against Borussia, 2-1 against Barcelona and 3-1 against Inter.
- The Czechs have however fared much better away from home: they managed to pick up points in both Milan (1-1) and Barcelona (0-0). Slavia are nonetheless still searching for a first ever road win in the Champions League. Their overall away record in the competition is as follows: three draws and two defeats.
- Slavia have lost five of the six matches they've played on German soil, failing to score a goal in each of these defeats. Their sole success came back in 1995/96, when they beat SC Freiburg 2-1 in the First Round of the UEFA Cup.
- The reigning Czech champions had racked up a 24 match unbeaten run (19 wins, five draws) across all competitions leading up to their Matchday 2 encounter with BVB, which ended 2-0 in favour of the Black & Yellows.
- Slavia have yet to be defeated in the Czech league this season, notching up 16 wins and three draws. Their goals scored to goals conceded ratio is a staggering 41:3. They've managed to keep a clean sheet in 16 of their 19 league matches.
- Slavia won their 18th Czech league title last season and their second in the last three years. They also lifted the cup to secure a first ever domestic double.
