JAKARTA - Borussia Dortmund's head coach, Edin Terzic, will receive a timely defense shot for the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final match against Atletico Madrid at Wanda Metropolitano on Wednesday, April 10, or Thursday morning WIB.

The German giant beat PSV Eindhoven 3-1 on aggregate to the last eight, despite Nico Schlotterbeck missing a 2-0 second leg win, having received a third yellow card in the opener.

However, Schlotterbeck has now completed his sanctions and is back on duty at the European scene, but the same cannot be said for left-back Ramy Bensebaini, who faces months of absence from a bad knee injury.

As a result, Ian Maatsen will play on the left side of the Dortmund defense, while Julian Ryerson will most likely have a chance on the right, although Niklas Sule has also done a competent job there in his home game against PSV.

With Schlotterbeck's return, the German international should join his fellow country, Matsxides, as the center barrier behind Gregor Kobel, while Emre Can operates ahead of both of them in sixth place.

Neither Marcel Sabitzer nor Julian Brandt managed to record a full playing time in the Bundesliga Dortmund match which lost to Stuttgart on Saturday, April 6, but both players should have been chosen to complete Can in Dortmund's midfield.

Di lini depan, cedera hip terbaru Donyell Malen membuatnya doubtful tampil untuk pertandingan ini, sehingga susunan depan yang tak berubah seharusnya terdiri dari Jadon Sancho, Karim Adeyemi, dan Niclas Fullkrug, yang terakhir berusaha mengakhiri sekapan delapan pertandingan tanpa gol di semua kompetisi.

On the other hand, head coach of Atletico Madrid, Diego Simeone, faces concerns over Memphis Depay's fitness condition for the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals.

The Dutchman - his team's second goalscorer in a dramatic second leg win of the last 16 against Inter Milan - was unable to complete a full training session on Saturday due to injury, which is serious and has yet to be confirmed to be fit.

However, Depay is only one of three concerns for Simeone to consider on Wednesday, as Mario Hermoso is also struggling with thigh problems, while Thomas Lemar has just recovered from an Achilles injury.

Depay is most likely placed on the bench, Antoine Griezmann and Alvaro Morata are ready to unite in the formation of two strikers that Simeone has applied, and the three host midfielders have also been determined.

Indeed, Rodrigo de Paul, Koke, and Marcos Llorente are expected to form midfield, with Nahuel Molina and Samuel Lino operating as wingers in the 3-5-2 system.

Former Borussia Dortmund player Axel Witsel is likely to meet again with his former club as part of a formidable defense shield, which will include Jose Gimenez and Reinildo, although Cesar Azpilicueta is a viable alternative.

Estimated line-up

Atletico Madrid: Oblak; Witsel, Gimenez, Reinildo; Molina, Llorente, Koke, De Paul, Lino; Griezmann, Morata

Borussia Dortmund: Kobel; Ryerson,xides, Schlotterbeck, Maatsen; Sabitzer, Can, Brandt; Sancho, Fullkrug, Adeyemi
