Lukasz Piszczek admits that it will be "very tough" for Borussia Dortmund to beat Real Madrid at home on Wednesday.

Borussia Dortmund defender Lukasz Piszczek believes that his side have "nothing to lose" against Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-finals.

The German club will host the defending Spanish champions in the first leg at Signal-Iduna Park on Wednesday.

"We're expecting a very tough game," he told Bundesliga.com. "I think Real have improved a lot since we played them in the group stages, but we've got nothing to lose.

"We've had a terrific Champions League campaign so far, which is why we're determined to get a good result against Real.

"We want to win but a goalless draw wouldn't be bad. Against Malaga [in the quarter-finals] we saw for ourselves just how difficult it can be at home after a 0-0 draw in the first leg."

Madrid failed to beat Dortmund when the sides met twice in the group stage of the competition earlier this season.
