Lukas Spalvis and Jefferson are both ruled out for Sporting for the trip to Dortmund. Adrien Silva has recovered from injury and is expected to start in midfield for the Portuguese side. Lazar Markovic could drop out of the XI, with Bryan Ruiz starting up top alongside Bas Dost.

Neven Subotic and Marco Reus are both closing in on a return to fitness, though Wednesday’s welcome of Sporting should come too soon for the pair. Marcel Schmelzer, Sven Bender and Erik Durm are all doubts and will be assessed closer to kick off.

Borussia Dortmund were held to a 0-0 draw with Schalke on Saturday evening, though are well placed to secure their spot in the next round of the Champions League. The overcame Sporting 2-1 last month and should make home advantage count with a win.

Sporting’s away form this season has been disappointing to say the least, with just two wins from six on the road. Dortmund are unbeaten at home in their last seven competitive outings, adding to the difficulty of this tie for Jorge Jesus’ side.

Given their good home form, Dortmund have what it takes to secure a routine win in this one.
