Borussia Dortmund vs. Juventus (24.02.2015 in Turin/18.03.2015 in Dortmund) is what Karl-Heinz Riedle pulled out the hat for the round of 16 in the Champions League knock out stages. A tie full of history, as both teams faced each other seven times in european competitions.

Are you happy with the draw and do you think Borussia Dortmund will progress against Juventus?
