Haaland double gives BVB advantage

Erling Haaland's brace give an out-of-sorts Dortmund side the advantage going into the second leg on March 9. Sevilla fought back, but didn't show any sign of real urgency until the last few minutes after Suso gave them the lead early on.

Sevilla favourites

The 'Europa League specialists' have found themselves in the knockout phase of the Champions League, and will be looking to continue their great form in 2021. Julen Lopetegui's side have lost just one of their last 19 games in all competitions

Indifferent form

The Black & Yellows come to Spain in poor form, but are capable of delivering when it counts. One league win in their last six has seen them slip out of the top four in the Bundesliga, but they will be hoping to put that behind them tonight
