Borussia Dortmund and Juventus come face to face in the second leg round of 16 of the Champions League at the Westfalenstadion as both sides look to book a spot in the next round of the European competition.

Having succumbed to narrow 1-2 defeat against the Italian giants in the first leg, Dortmund will be banking on their home support as they look to turn things around in at the Westfalenstadion.

Dortmund, who had a very poor start in the Bundesliga this season, are currently doing pretty well, climbing to the 10th position remaining unbeaten in their last six fixtures.

Due to this reason Dortmund boss Jürgen Klopp is certain that his side will be able to do well in the second leg against Juventus even though he admits that the Serie champions are a very "experienced" and "clever" side.

"It is one of the biggest challenges in football: we need a win against an Italian side who need only a draw," Klopp told UEFA's official website.

"We are completely ready. We conceded on the counterattack in Turin, but they also had other chances in the second half. They are incredibly experienced, very clever; but not unbeatable. We have to keep our cool. A 1-0 win would see us through, after all."

The 47-year-old German, who admits that his side were not outstanding in the first fixture, insists that Juventus will be giving their best in the second leg.

"If you are in the Champions League round of 16 and want to go through, you need at least one outstanding game. Our first-leg performance wasn't outstanding, so that is our target. If we manage that, we have a chance. If not, we will go out and do so deservedly."

However, he admits that the game will be difficult considering Juventus' form in the Serie A.

"Nobody in Germany believes Italian football is mediocre and certainly not Juventus. It is telling that they enjoy a 14-point lead in Serie A. It is telling how they get results, often winning by just a goal, but almost always winning. It will be a big challenge."

Meanwhile, Juventus will be confident against Dortmund after their 2-1 victory over the Bundesliga side in the first leg.

Since their win over Dortmund Juventus have not been in the best of forms recording only two wins in their last four fixtures in all competitions.

Playing at the Westfalenstadion will certainly not be an easy task for any team, and Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri admits that his side need to be prepared for Dortmund's "skill, pace and quality".

"We have to prepare for Dortmund's skill, pace and quality. They can put us under a lot of pressure," Allegri told UEFA's official website, adding that Juventus will be looking to play a "technical" game" and "exploit their weaknesses" in the second leg.

"We will have to put in a perfect technical performance and exploit their weaknesses."

Dortmund: Weidenfeller; Kirch, Subotić, Hummels, Schmelzer; S Bender, Gündoğan; Błaszczykowski, Kampl, Reus; Aubameyang.
