Emre Can will lead Borussia Dortmund's charge in midfield, fresh off from his encouraging overall performance against VfB Stuttgart. The BVB captain has struggled for consistency so far, but will need to be at his very best against Atletico Madrid's established midfield.

Marcel Sabitzer will likely keep his spot in the number eight role. The Austrian international has been one of Borussia Dortmund's most consistent performers since the turn of the year, and has three assists to his name in the Champions League this season.

Julian Brandt has been struggling with inconsistency in recent weeks, and it will be interesting to see if Edin Terzic decides to persist with him as the team's attacking midfielder. Felix Nmecha and Marco Reus are the other options in the BVB squad if Terzic looks to make a change.
