Socceroos keeper Langerak confident Dortmund can trouble Real Madrid

Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Mitch Langerak believes the team is capable of creating some problems for Real Madrid this week.

The German side takes on the Spanish giants in the Champions League quarter-final second leg at Signal Iduna Park on Tuesday night after losing 3-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu last week.

Despite trailing so heavily to a very dangerous team, Australian gloveman Langerak is of the belief that BVB can bridge the gap with Real in front of die Schwarzgelben faithful.

"It's an incredibly important game for us," Langerak told Bundesliga.com after the weekend's league win over Wolfsburg.

"Our Champions League adventure isn't over, even if we lost the first leg 3-0.

"We're always capable of scoring one or two goals, especially at home. We can, and we need to. We'll just have to see what happens."

Langerak deputised for the injured Roman Weidenfeller on Saturday but is unsure whether or not he will take the gloves for the visit of Cristiano Ronaldo and co.

"I can't say. For the team's sake, I hope Roman recovers by Tuesday," he added.
