Sports Mole previews the Champions League meeting between Spain's Malaga and Borussia Dortmund of Germany.

Malaga's story in this season's Champions League has captured the imagination of many people.

In what is their debut campaign in the competition the Spanish outfit have reached the quarter-finals and now German champions Borussia Dortmund stand between them and a place in the final four.

The first leg is being played at La Rosaleda, where no side have defeated Malaga in Europe this season.

Young Spanish international Isco will almost certainly continue in attack, while Julio Baptista and Javier Saviola may also feature from the start.

Meanwhile, visiting Dortmund have an injury concern over full-back Marcel Schmelzer, who has fractured his nose. The match may also come too soon for Mats Hummels and Jakub Blaszczykowski.
