Die Schwarzgelben earned a goalless draw in Spain which theoretically sets them up nicely for a tilt at a place in the last four, although Jürgen Klopp’s side will be nervous about conceding an away goal to a Malaga team who certainly won’t feel they are out of this tie.
Even so, Dortmund have to be considered strong favourites to go through and Coral offer odds of 4/9 about a home win on Tuesday, with the manager having rested several players on Saturday when the team beat Augsburg 4-2.
Robert Lewandowski are among those who will return to the first team and he’s the 10/3 favourite with Coral to score the first goal, with the Pole having proved to be a goal machine in recent weeks.
As for Malaga, they would have loved to have headed to Germany with some kind of first leg advantage although a goalless draw at home is not the worst result in Europe and Manuel Pellegrini is an experienced coach who will hope his team can keep the home supporters quiet and sneak a goal on the counter-attack.
Los Boquerones have already punched above their weight to reach the last eight of the competition and BetVictor go 8/1 that they land an away win at the Westfalenstadion, with several Malaga players having been rested for a 4-2 defeat at Sociedad on Saturday.
Quite whether they can stop Dortmund scoring at home is another matter and this could easily turn out to be a one-sided affair considering the performance that the German side turned in against Shakhtar in the last round where they won the second leg 3-0 after drawing away.
BetVictor go 19/2 about another 3-0 win and it wouldn’t be outrageous to back a 4-0 scoreline considering that Malaga’s away form in La Liga this term is fairly ordinary, with the team having beaten five times and held to a draw on four occasions.
Alternatively, you can get 11/10 with Paddy Power that Dortmund lead at half-time and full-time, with Draw – Dortmund available at 10/3 should you think it might take a while for the German side to force a breakthrough.
