Schmelzer: Borussia Dortmund want Champions League progress

The left-back has spoken of the 'spine-tingling' feeling of lining up for BVB in Europe and is determined to go as far as possible in the competition
Marcel Schmelzer is eagerly anticipating the second-leg of Borussia Dortmund's Champions League quarter-final tie against Malaga and has stressed that the dethroned Bundesliga champions will do their utmost to make it to the next round.

BVB were held to a 0-0 draw in the first leg at La Rosaleda last week and the left-back is hopeful of clinching qualification for the semi-finals at the Westfalenstadion on Tuesday.

"This competition is so special. Listening to the anthem before a match is spine tingling. You face Europe's best teams. It is our goal to go through every round," the left-back said at a press conference.

"It is something unique. None of us have been this far before. We want to give everything and if we went through, it would be great."

Dortmund last made it to the semi-finals of the Champions League in 1997-98 when they were beaten by Real Madrid.
