Share

Kick-off is set for 7.45pm BST.

Live coverage of the game is available on BT Sport 3 and BT Sport 3 HD.

The Ruhr side are trailing 2-3 from their first leg match.

The team bus of German Bundesliga soccer club Borussia Dortmund is escorted by police officers as it arrives at the Louis stadium before the Champions League quarterfinal second leg soccer match between Monaco and Dortmund in Monaco, Wednesday April 19, 2017.

When the game finally went ahead at Signal Iduna Park Dortmund lost 3-2 and Tuchel later fumed at UEFA for allowing the match to be played at all.

The center of attraction tonight will be at Camp Nou where Barcelona will face Italian giants Juventus after losing the first leg in Turin 3 - 0.

Nobody expected Monaco - conquerors of Pep Guardiola's Manchester City in the last round - to get this far but they have done it playing a superb brand of football that has yielded 141 goals so far this season. Bartra, on the other hand, is expected to be unavailable for around a month with a hand fracture.

"I don't mind who we draw next; in the semi-finals there's only huge clubs and we don't want to avoid anyone".

"We knew they would give us space and we took advantage with the speed of our forwards". We're the team that's played the most games in all of Europe. We have to keep going along the same lines and look at what didn't work so well today; I think that at some points we were too passive, we sat too deep. We have made great games with a back three, especially in the Champions League, but we were not good enough.

But it was Monaco who had the best chances to score again after that, with Burki tipping over Almamy Toure's looping header and Falcao squandering a fine chance before substitute Germain made sure of their place in the last four. I have brought a quality squad here and we are capable of winning by two clear goals. "Because our DNA is to attack and to always try and score". We will attack from the first minute until the 90th.

"It was the worst thing that could happen a week after the attack - everyone was on the bus ready to go but we were not allowed to", said coach Thomas Tuchel. "We know it will be very tough, but we have the energy and confidence we need to get a result".

"It's been an incredible season and we're a bunch of mates who manage to enjoy ourselves out on the pitch", Mbappe said.
