I don't think Dortmund will struggle. Shakhtar won't have the necessary matchtime to just travel to Dortmund and play extremely well, well enough to break Dortmund down. Got to feel sympathy for the teams out east, fixture scheduling gives them no real chance in the 2nd half of the Champions League campaigns.

As for where they need players, up front and at fullback positions. Schieber isn't exactly quality, Grobkreutz is their only good attacking option from the bench, and he is also their only strong alternative at fullback positions.

And I would agree with the Klopp love. Extremely handsome man, fantastic hair, both pre winter and now. And a fantastic coach.

Yeah I don't see them getting that far, all depends on the draw though. Porto/Malaga or Schalke/Galatasary might be a good tie for them.

United/Real, Dortmund/Shakhtar, Bayern, Barca, Juventus & PSG is a strong group of teams. The QF's will be epic this year.

The same with the Europa League (which in terms of excitement I have found better than the CL the past few years). Some real good teams in that this year too.

Yeah, this season's Champions League has the potential to throw up some mammoth ties. Juventus/Dortmund is something I'd be very excited to see.

BVB will be 100% focused on the champions league though with Bayern so far ahead in the Bundesliga. If they get by Shakhtar, i don't see why they can't reach the semis if they don't get Barca. Of course they would have to keep a fully fit squad and all, but they can beat most teams on their day.

I think they'll get by Shakhtar in the home leg though. 100% at home in the Champions League so far, and Shakhtars lack of match practice might catch up to them. I think it'll be a close game though, with a narrow victory for Dortmund or a 1-1 draw.

Realistically, Shakhtar aren't beating Dortmund. Unless within 3 weeks they lose Reus, Gotze, Hummels and Lewandowski. Their first team will beat Shakhtar at home.

I would like to see Dortmund vs PSG though in the quarters. A potentially extremely entertaining game. However, lack of Zlatan could be a negative thing in the match. Lavezzi would probably be man marked out of the match, and PSG's midfield is pretty flat, and their defence wouldn't be too hard to break through. Still, potentially a very good match.

Napoli never seem to take advantage of Juventus' slip ups this season, they also have a complex against teams in the bottom half of the table. In recent months they have dropped points to Sampdoria, Bologna and if you take it to European competition that horrible loss at home to Plzen

Bundesliga is over, but the fight for 4th place and Europa League is interesting and while the bottom three are well behind the rest, don't forget in Germany 16th place means a playoff not automatic relegation. So its basically a three team mini-league to determine who gets that playoff spot

What I'd like to see in the QF of the CL:

- Barcelona vs. Juventus
- Real Madrid/Manchester United vs. PSG
- Borussia Dortmund vs. Galatasaray (Mainly for Drogs)
- Arsenal vs. FC Porto/Malaga

It's awesome how far Juve has come. They can take Barcelona!
