Sevilla will host Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday night seeking their first UEFA Champions League Group G win.

The Spanish outfit come into the game at the bottom of their group after picking just 1 point from their opening 2 games.

Dortmund on the other hand are second with 3 points, three behind leaders Man City ahead of this encounter.

For Sevilla, who have finished fourth 3 seasons running in La Liga under former Spain boss Julen Lopetegui, it has been an incredibly disappointing start to the season.

Dortmund will still be on course to qualify from Group G as long as they can avoid defeat in Seville in midweek.

Dortmund suffered a 3-2 defeat to FC Koln in the Bundesliga at the weekend, falling behind Bayern Munich in the table ahead of their weekend clash.

Will Lopetegui’s charges manage to withstand the German pressure to get their first win of the season?
