Dortmund, who beat Juventus to secure their sole Champions League trophy in 1997 in Munich, trail 2-1 after the first leg but Klopp is upbeat about them avoiding the fates of their predecessors on the three previous occasions they have hosted the Italian champions and lost.

Klopp's side have taken 14 points from a possible 18 in the league recently, but have been held to goalless draws in both of their last two games, latterly Saturday's home match with Cologne.

"One should not see this result too negatively," said Klopp. "The only good thing from the Cologne result was that we saw what didn't work. "We can do better, we have already shown that. The aim remains to reach the Champions League's quarter-finals and the boys can do it."
