Borussia Dortmund v Zenit: Predicted lineups
Borussia Dortmund v Zenit: UCL projected lineups as AVB looks for miraculous return
Borussia Dortmund are one of the most walking injured sides in all of Europe at the moment as their list of players likely to miss this afternoon's match is almost longer than those that have a chance to play.
However, with a 4-2 aggregate lead the German side are favored to go through with Russian side Zenit St. Petersburg in the midst of managerial transition and having their own injury concerns.
Neven Subotic, Ilkay Gundogan, Jakub Blaszczykowski, Sven Bender and Jannik Bandowksi are all among the sidelined for Dortmund while Andrey Arshavin, Ego Baburin and Cristian Ansaldi are all likely to miss the trip to Germany.
Having just been named as the successor to the Russian side, former Chelsea and Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas will hope he can conjure a brilliant performance from his former Porto charge Hulk to inspire a major turn around that will see them need to win big to advance.
Dortmund XI: Weidenfeller: Ducksch, Hummels, Sokratis, Schmelzer; Sahin, Kehl; Aubameyang, Mkhitaryan, Reus; Lewandowski.
Zenit XI: Lodygin: Anyukov, Hudocan, Lombaerts, Smolnikov; Fayzulin, Witsel; Hulk, Shatov, Danny; Rondon.
