Malaga deny Dortmund at home

Debutants Malaga kept their Champions League dream very much alive when they held Bundesliga champions Borussia Dortmund to a 0-0 draw in their quarter-final first leg at the Rosaleda on Wednesday.

Malaga goalkeeper Willy Caballero was in inspired form for the Qatar-owned La Liga club and the home side created several chances in an entertaining clash between two attack-minded sides.

Dortmund’s Mario Goetze was twice clean through on goal in the first half but was unable to get the better of Caballero and the Germany international skewed a shot wide when well placed 25 minutes from time. Isco had Malaga’s best chance in the 66th minute when he smashed a first-time shot through a crowd of players but Dortmund keeper Roman Weidenfeller punched the ball away to leave the teams goalless ahead of Tuesday’s return leg in Germany.

The second tie promises a plenty and both teams will look to get the scoring.
