Neven Subotic believes that if Borussia Dortmund can create chances against Malaga like they did in Spain then they can qualify for the semi-finals.

Borussia Dortmund centre-back Neven Subotic has urged his teammates to perform in the Champions League quarter-final second leg against Malaga as they did in the first leg on Wednesday night.

The German side squandered a number of chances but came away with a 0-0 draw, and Subotic said that a similar showing next week should be enough to see them through to the semi-finals.

"There is really nothing I can criticise my teammates for," quotes Subotic as saying.

"They put in the effort. Up front they created lots of opportunities to score and I am sure that if we put in at least the same effort again in the second leg then we will create sufficient chances to score a goal.

"Malaga did not make it easy for us at all. They are a good team. Just look at the first half, they put in a huge effort, they defended well - this is a good side which plays quality football. We want more. We want a goal and it is in our hands because all we have to do is win the home game."

The second leg kicks off in Dortmund on Tuesday night.
