Borussia Dortmund have reached the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League for the ninth time – thanks in part to an outstanding goalkeeping display. Here are the match facts.
Safe hands: Roman Bürki made seven saves in a man-of-the-match performance. It was a personal Champions League record for him. But it does not quite rival his Bundesliga record: the custodian made 11 saves during the 1-0 away victory in Mönchengladbach.
End-to-end: The two teams had 32 attempts at goal between them. Slavia had slightly more of the shots (17-15).
Difference-maker: 17 of the last 19 home goals have been scored in front of the South Stand.
Career first: Julian Weigl was handed his marching orders for the first time in his professional career. He was given two yellow cards for repeated foul play.
Through: BVB have successfully navigated the (first) UEFA Champions League group stage for the 10th time. Of all the Bundesliga clubs, only FC Bayern have achieved this feat more often (25 times). BVB have reached the knockout stages nine times and the second group phase – which previously existed in the old format – once. (br)
