Borussia Dortmund will aim to maintain their home unbeaten record against Real Madrid in the Champions League today and spoil Cristiano Ronaldo's 150th European appearance.
Dortmund and title holders Real meet in the group stage for the second year running. The teams drew both games 2-2 last season as the Germans topped the section before bowing out in the last eight while Real went on to win a record 12th title.
Dortmund have won three and drawn three of their meetings at Signal Iduna Park, including their dazzling 4-1 first-leg win in the 2013 Champions League semi-final when Robert Lewandowski scored all four goals.
Defending champions Real opened their group campaign with a 3-0 win at home to APOEL while Dortmund suffered a 3-1 defeat at Tottenham Hotspur two weeks ago.
The Germans' main task will be containing four-time Ballon d'Or winner Ronaldo, who has scored 110 goals in European competition but failed to find the net in his last two outings.The Portuguese superstar is among the final three nominees for the Best FIFA Men's Player 2017 award and the winner will be announced on Oct. 23.
