Dortmund are still without Jadon Sancho, who is struggling with a muscle injury.

Defender Dan-Axel Zagadou is also out, while forward Youssoufa Moukoko has been ruled out for the season. 

PEP PREVIEW

“Of course [the defeat to Lyon last season was tough, emotionally],” Pep said. “It remains in my head for weeks. It was painful, I cannot deny it.

“It was the last game of the season. We wanted to go through. We congratulate Lyon. We didn't do it quite well. We didn’t deserve to go through.

“It was painful of course, but what can we do? For a short time, ten days, we suffer. Then, we wake up and prepare for the next season.

“But the defeat hurts - especially this one. Day after, we say goodbye and everyone goes away. It was disappointing.

“But we are here again to try again.”

Edin Terzić preview

"We need to be at the top of our game in both legs; on it from the first second to the last, and maybe for extra time too. To overcome Manchester City would be something special. Guardiola is undoubtedly one of the best coaches in the world. For almost 15 years his teams have dominated football."

FORM GUIDE

City have also enjoyed a succesful Champions League campaign thus far, having won seven and drawn one of our eight games in Europe this season.

We head into the quarter-final having not conceded a Champions League goal in 11 hours and 35 minutes of football - the second longest run in the competition's history.

We booked our place in the quarter-final thanks to a 4-0 aggregate win over Borussia Monchengladbach in the Round of 16.

Our win at Leicester on Saturday means we have won 26 of our last 27 matches in all competitions.
