Sporting CP and Borussia Dortmund will play their potentially decisive penultimate UEFA Champions League group game on Wednesday evening. The team will depart for Lisbon from Wickede airport at 11:00 CET.

"A good opponent awaits us. We have the chance to qualify for the next round if we win. With that in mind, we need to work hard and believe in ourselves," said head coach Marco Rose, before adding: "The result against Stuttgart, and the way we worked for it, will give us momentum."

BVB boss Hans-Joachim Watzke put it in clear terms at the club's annual general meeting on Sunday, saying: "Just go for it, win in Lisbon and then it's done and dusted." (br)
