Ilkay Gundogan has told his Borussia Dortmund teammates to face their Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid without fear.
Dortmund travel out to the Santiago Bernabeu for this second-leg knockout encounter with a 4-1 lead to defend.
“We have experienced a game here already this season, we know about the atmosphere,” commented Gundogan to reporters pre-game.
“We know we will have a wonderful crowd here that will include some of our fans.
“This is not like any other game, it's the semi-final of the Champions League. It is a very special game.
“We should not act in fear. We are also going to have our fans to please.
“We are playing for a place in the Champions League Final and we must adapt to what happens. We cannot be rigid.”
