Klopp still confident of progress

Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp remained upbeat despite his side's failure to score in their Champions League quarter-final first leg at Malaga.

• Uersfeld: Dortmund stay smooth
• Cartlidge: Caballero heroics

Dortmund had numerous chances to win the game, with Mario Gotze passing up three golden opportunities and Robert Lewandowski unable to convert from a good position early in the second half, and the game finished in a 0-0 draw.

Klopp felt his team had performed well for the most part at La Rosaleda and is confident they can reach the semi-finals.

"I can live with the 0-0 draw," he said, according to kicker. "We played a good game against unpleasant opponents. We did everything right until the last ball or the finish.

"Even if we had scored a goal, the opponents would not have been too concerned about it. We know what we have to do in the second leg."

Malaga also had opportunities to score in the first leg and Dortmund defender Marcel Schmelzer added: "This is not the best result, but it's better than a defeat."
