SOT, Lucien Favre, Borussia Dortmund Coach (German): "We can look forward to the match, we are playing against Liverpool, the Champions League winners. We played against them one year ago and now we're going to play against them again. They are Champions League winners now so it is a bit different, it is clear they are one of the best teams in Europe. We've seen many of their games, quarter-final, semi-final, final and so on and it is clear they are a very, very, very good team. Also, in the Premiere League they finished second with a lot of points also in Manchester City so we are very happy to play against them."

SOT, Lucien Favre, Dortmund Trainer (German): "We want to play a good match. We don't need to motivate the players because with Liverpool it is automatic and we want to continue to prepare and play a good match. This is very, very important."
SOT, Thomas Delaney, Midfielder of Borussia Dortmund: "Of course the biggest issue for us in the end is maybe not winning but getting in the fitness, getting in the good feelings, linking up with the new players and then we will see where we go from there but it is not going to be a Champions League game tomorrow I'm sure."
