Holding the Bundesliga champions to a draw Malaga have not let their championship dream die out in the first leg. However the return leg will be interesting as they will be without Weligton and Manuel Iturra for the second leg.
Borissia Dortmund, on the other hand, were unable to capitalise on numerous occasions. The first half was full of opportunities for the German shirts to convert for a healthy advantage in the scoreline.
Mario Gotze had three golden openings to get past Willy Caballero at La Rosaleda but the Germans left empty handed.
