Borussia Dortmund have made two changes at halftime, looking to play a more defensive style for the final 45 minutes.

Neven Subotic and Nuri Sahin have come on to replace Mats Hummels and Ilkay Gundogan respectively.

Gundogan got the starting nod over Sahin today after the Turkish midfielder was in the eleven last week at Signal Iduna Park.

Hummels has made way for Subotic as the Serbian center back will look to keep the clean sheet intact.

Nuri Sahin has endured an injury plagued season for Borussia Dortmund, and his introduction into the Europa squad in both knockout round matches is a welcome sight for the club.

Subotic meanwhile has fallen out of favor but is has been utilized as a sub over the past two matches and is poised to state a case for his reintroduction into the starting eleven.
