Benfica have taken 22 players to Germany for the second leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie with Borussia Dortmund. Ljubomir Fejsa has failed to recover from his left ankle sprain, dealing a massive blow to the Eagles' hopes. By contrast, Filipe Augusto has recovered from his right ankle sprain, some two weeks earlier than expected.

Jonas missed the first leg with a neck injury, but looks set to be involved tomorrow. Nélson Semedo is well-rested after serving a domestic ban at the weekend.

Wednesday's match at the Westfalenstadion is scheduled for 19:45 UK and Portuguese time, and will be officiated by English referee Martin Atkinson.
