German side, Borussia Dortmund, hopes to defend a 2-nil lead at Porto as the two sides fight for a place in the last 16 of the Europa League.
Coach Thomas Tuchel expressed hope that since the team dominated the first match in Germany, they would try to do the same in Thursday’s match.
Dortmund beat Bayer Leverkusen 1-nil in the Bundesliga away match on Sunday and presently second in the table behind Bayern Munich, but 15 points ahead of Hertha Berlin in third.
Meanwhile, Coach Louis Van Gaal insists Manchester United must learn to ignore their critics.
The Dutchman observed that their performances might have been affected by the intense scrutiny the team had been under throughout the campaign.
