On Tuesday night Borussia Dortmund will be looking for revenge as they will seek a win against Italian giants Napoli at the Signal Iduna Park.

A few months ago Napoli beat Borussia 2-1, but now both teams will be looking to win in order to boost their chances to go through the group stage.

Team News

Borussia Dortmund will be able to use both Lukasz Pisczcek and Sebastian Kehl, who are fit after recovering from long-term injuries.

Yet Jurgen Klopp won't have Mats Hummels, Neven Subotic, Marcel Schmelzer and Ilkay Gundogan, who have all been ruled out of the game.

Napoli manager Rafael Benitez will be without Giandomenico Mesto and Juan Camilo Zuniga.

Key midfielder Marek Hamsik is doubt, but could feature for Napoli.

Manager quotes

Jurgen Klopp: "We can not influence the public opinion about our games. We have lost some points along the way, points we would have liked to have taken, but this will only help Napoli if we play badly. We are highly focused and can not be knocked out so easily."

Rafael Benitez: "We are playing against top-class opposition, who I respect tremendously. They have earned this from their great performances in Europe last season. I love such duels. It will be a real gauge of how far we have come."

Possible line-ups:

Borussia: Weidenfeller, Piszczek, Grosskreutz, Sokratis, Durm, Sahin, Bender, Kuba, Reus, Aubameyang, Lewandowski.

Napoli: Reina, Armero, Albiol, Britos, Maggio, Behrami, Inler, Hamsik, Callejon, Insigne, Higuain
