Borussia Dortmund host Sevilla today looking to seal a place in UEFA Champions League quarter-finals. The German side heads up to this clash with a one-goal advantage after beating the Spanish team in the first-leg by 3-2. It may be safe to say the hosts look favored, but the visitors are famous for overcoming the odds. However, BVB are unbeaten in their last 7 UCL games at the Signal Iduna Park, with 5 victories and 2 draws. Here we'll take a look into the match preview, storylines, predictions, odds, and how to watch the game in the US.
Dortmund are once again among the best 16 teams in Europe, but they don't seem to settle with that. Having exited this tournament at this round in the last two editions, it's time for the Germans to step up and show what they are capable of. With stars like Erling Haaland and Jadon Sancho they can aim higher and already made a strong step by winning in the first-leg.
Sevilla are facing another trying moment. They are well-known for dealing successfuly with challenging situations, and this one may be another opportunity to make history. It doesn't seem as an easy task, but Julen Lopetegui's team has experience in defeating apparently stronger rivals.

Borussia Dortmund vs Sevilla: Storylines
The German team did a great job in the first-leg played at Sevilla and scored three goals that were useful to get the win. Now they return home with a one-goal advantage, which is also important as it was on the road. Although the squad coached by Edin Terzic isn't doing very well in the Bundesliga, they have a good lineup to pursue a good run in this Champions League.
On the other hand, Sevilla needs a quick recovery after disappointing results. After losing with Dortmund, they were also beaten by Barcelona in the league and in the Copa del Rey as well, where they've been kicked out, and Elche shocked them prior to this clash. It won't be easy, but the difference isn't enormous and the Spanish side have a chance to turn around things.
The only time these two have faced in Signal Iduna Park was in 2010, when the visitors won by 1-0 in UEFA Europa League's group stage. However, the hosts have been strong at home as they didn't lose in their last seven games there for this tournament, with five triumphs and two ties. Moreover, they lost just once from the last 18 times they played at their venue.
