1. (SOUNDBITE) (German) BORUSSIA DORTMUND COACH, THOMAS TUCHEL, SAYING:

“Yes of course we acknowledge the quality of Real Madrid. It will be a big task to try and defend ourselves against them. With Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo and Morata or Benzema. Of course this is extraordinary quality and the highest standard. So we will need to really pay attention. We will need much effort and solidarity and a lot, a lot of application when we switch from the offence to the defence. We are going to need a good and structured ball possession, that has to be safe but bold. And we need a high concentration for those moments where we lose possession and a good structured and measured approach to get in early to disable any Read Madrid possession in their front row. So our front row has to be on top form tomorrow and the whole team has to defend energetically.”

STORY: Borussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel said on Monday (September 26) that his side will face a “big task” when they meet reigning European champions Real Madrid in the Champions League on Tuesday (September 27).

Dortmund, who thrashed Legia Warsaw 6-0 away in their opening group game, are second in the German top flight and on Friday (September 23) equalled a club record of 24 games without defeat at home in the Bundesliga with a 3-1 win over Freiburg.

Eleven-times European champions Real have a dismal record in Germany, having won four out of 30 competitive games in the country, and have lost their last three visits to Dortmund.

However coach Thomas Tuchel said his Dortmund side had to play their best game.

“It will be a big task to try and defend ourselves against them. With Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo and Morata or Benzema. Of course this is extraordinary quality and the highest standard. So we will need to really pay attention. We will need much effort and solidarity and a lot, a lot of application when we switch from the offence to the defence. We are going to need a good and structured ball possession, that has to be safe but bold. And we need a high concentration for those moments where we lose possession and a good structured and measured approach to get in early to disable any Read Madrid possession in their front row. So our front row has to be on top form tomorrow and the whole team has to defend energetically,” Tuchel told the news conference.

Dortmund are waiting on the fitness of their Spain centre-back Marc Bartra and Colombian forward Adrian Ramos, who both missed Friday’s win over Freiburg.

Their hitman Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang finished the game with a knock although the Gabon striker, who has four goals in his last three games, said it was nothing to worry about.
