Füllkrug to make first Dortmund start against PSG?

Borussia Dortmund coach Edin Terzic has discussed the possibility of Niclas Füllkrug making his first start in black and yellow against Paris Saint-Germain.
Having recovered from a thigh problem, Niclas Füllkrug is in contention to make his first start for Borussia Dortmund since his summer move from Werder Bremen when the Black and Yellows face Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday night in their first Champions League group stage match of the season.

Most recently, the striker came on as a substitute for Sebastien Haller with 30 minutes remaining in Saturday's 4-2 Bundesliga win over Freiburg and set up a goal.

"He handled it well and has been able to train with the team," Borussia Dortmund coach Edin Terzic said of Füllkrug at yesterday's pre-match press conference.

"We'll see tomorrow if it's enough for more."

While Terzic knows it's a tough task to face Paris on the road, he's confident his team can cause the French hosts problems.

"We are facing one of the most attractive opponents in the Champions League," said Terzic.

"We don't just want to make up the numbers - we want to compete with the best. It's about putting in a really good performance. That is what we will do tomorrow.

"We are confident enough to say that we are taking on one of the favorites to win the Champions League. We have proven that we can cause problems for teams competing for the trophy."
