A good performance by Málaga against Bundesliga champions Borussia Dortmund, although they still have a lot to do after the first leg ended without goals. Saviola was given the striker's role up front, and he fired a shot in to the side netting early on. However only a couple of first class saves by Willy Caballero from Götze and later on from Kehl prevented the German team from taking the lead before the break, and Reus also went close with a dangerous free kick which just sailed over the crossbar.
Weidenfeller had to keep out a Weligton header shortly before half time though, and the visiting keeper reacted quickly to punch clear a shot by Isco through a crowded goal-mouth midway through the second half. But otherwise Pellegrini's side were unable to break down a well ordered defence, and Lewandowski missed an easy chance when he scuffed his shot wide when free in front of goal. Málaga are still in it however, and having kept a clean sheet at home, a score draw in Germany next Tuesday would see them through to the last four.
