Borussia Dortmund forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is convinced his side is fully prepared to face Juventus in the midweek Champions League tie, with the Italians leading 2-1 from the first leg.
The Bundesliga outfit have had a relatively poor season, flirting with relegation, though seem to have found some form of late which has propelled the team to mid-table safety.
“Dortmund is unique, it lives for football and we are ready,” he said. “The sport is deep-rooted here and we have huge support.
“The secret is the special bond we have with the fans who have remained loyal despite the crisis. And now we have got back on track, we are pressing well, our counter-attacks are fast and defensively we are organised.”
Interestingly, the Gabon international started out his career at AC Milan but never made a senior appearance for the Rossoneri, having spent most of his time out on loan.
