THE TEAM NEWS
- Slavia Prague were close to pulling off a shock at Internazionale on matchday one and they are unbeaten in 16 competitive games so far this season, winning 13 of them.
- The team that started against Mlada Boleslav on Saturday showed just one change from the one that took to the field in Milan, so it is likely to be a similar line-up here.
- Centre-back Ondrej Kudela will be assessed after coming off at half-time on Saturday but otherwise coach Jindrich Trpisovsky has a full squad to pick from.
Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Kolar; Coufal, Kudela, Hovorka, Boril; Husbauser, Soucek; Masopust, Stanciu, Olayinka; Skoda
Doubtful: Kudela (Injured)
- Borussia Dortmund drew 2-2 for the second game running at home to Werder Bremen on Saturday and have won just one of their last six Champions League matches.
- Mats Hummels sat out Saturday's match due to a niggling back problem but should return to partner Manuel Akanji in the centre of defence.
Summer signing Mateu Morey was included in the squad for the first time at the weekend so left-back Nico Schulz is the only other injury concern for coach Lucien Favre.
Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Burki; Hakimi, Hummels, Akanji, Raphael Guerreiro; Witsel, Delaney; Sancho, Reus, Hazard; Paco Alcacer
Doubtful: Hummels (Injured), Schulz (Injured)
Borussia Dortmund played well in their opening group match against Barcelona but they have had two disappointing results in the Bundesliga since. Beating Slavia Prague on their own patch is not an easy task but the Black and Yellows should have the attacking quality to get the job done.
