This is where N'Zonzi will be key, ever the go-to man in big games this season. Thorgan Hazard was the hero at the Borussia-Park, Borussia's leading scorer stepping off the bench to score a brace and end a personal run of nine matches without a goal. They have also shown that their poor form in La Liga has no bearing whatsoever in Europe, and should again be a hard side to break down.

"Everyone is talking about the semis, but if we win, then we can talk about that".
