🎙 Marco Rose, Borussia Dortmund coach

"Our third competition is beginning. We've got off to a respectable start in the cup and the Bundesliga. Now it's time for the Champions League too. The lads put together a fantastic run of results at the end of last season to get here - because they wanted to play in games like these".

"We want to write our own history in this competition. We'll have to be on it right from the start tomorrow if we want to do so. I couldn't care less about that. They are all Champions League opponents. Our goal is to make it through the group, ideally in first place. We'll start off with the game tomorrow and then we'll see how it goes from there".

We are prepared and we know that it is one of the loudest stadiums in Europe. That spurs us on and we should use it positively for ourselves. Besiktas defends aggressively and is also strong offensively.”

Erling Haaland is an outstanding player and he still has more potential. He's also a young player who can still gain more experience at this top level."

"We are now a well-established team that is known. On top of that, there are talented players joining us. In the Champions League, we will face teams that have completed their leagues as champions. There will be tough matches. We are also a good team. We will go out to win. It was very special to meet our fans again. Our fans will experience the same excitement as we do tomorrow and they will feed us. We don't doubt it."

"It's impossible to show favorites in matches. Teams that fight on the field and can perform together are close to victory in matches. I don't see any team as a favorite in the matches we will play. If we fight well and play together, of course we can win."

"It feels good to be together and play with quality players. Pjanic is a very skilled and talented player. Atiba is at least as good a player as Pjanic."

"I'm happy to be involved in the club's development. Our only goal in the Champions League is to qualify from the group. It is possible if we can continue with the game we have played so far."
