Signal Iduna Arena

On April 2, the Westfalenstadion was born on Strobelallee, which by then could hold 56,000 spectators.

Since then, the home of Dortmund has undergone several renovations, in short, a long renovation process that reached its peak just before 2006, on the occasion of the FIFA World Cup held in Germany. Its name was changed to Signal Iduna Arena, its capacity was increased to accommodate 81,365 fans and the acoustics were improved, among many other reforms. Those transformations were enough to make it the largest stadium in Germany and a worldwide soccer icon.

Sporting Lisboa

Portuguese champions Sporting have made a fantastic start to their title defense, with a seven-game unbeaten run in the league. However, the 5-1 home loss to Ajax on the first day of the UCL, and the horrible historical record against German teams in the UCL, will be a cause for concern when they visit Dortmund.

Considering that their star player Pedro Gonçalves is still injured, Rúben Amorim's team could face an uphill battle to avoid losing their first two UCL group stage matches for the first time in nine group stage appearances. The away side's two defeats in clashes against Dortmund during the 2016/17 UCL group stage could also be a bad omen.

Borussia Dortmund

The shock 1-0 loss to Mönchengladbach at the weekend must have hit Borussia Dortmund's morale, but they must turn the page quickly, now hosting Portuguese champions Sporting Lisbon in the second round of the UEFA Champions League (UCL). There may be no better club to bounce back to than Sporting, as Dortmund have a perfect home record against Portuguese teams in European competition and are favorites to back up what they did in the group stage opener, where they beat Beşiktaş 2-1.

Dortmund, who have the longest unbeaten run at home in the UCL group stage, have a good chance of extending that streak and claiming top spot in the group, despite their long list of absentees. The home side, who have kept six clean sheets in that nine-game span, have conceded two goals in their three Bundesliga games this season, something they will need to correct if they are to claim all three points this time around.
