Malaga draw comfort

Debutants Malaga kept their Champions League dream alive when they held Borussia Dortmund to a 0-0 draw in their quarter-final first leg in Spain.

Malaga goalkeeper Willy Caballero was in inspired form and the home team created several chances in an entertaining clash between two attack-minded sides.

Dortmund's Mario Goetze was twice clean through on goal in the first half but was unable to get the better of Caballero and the Germany international skewed a shot wide when well placed 25 minutes from time.

Isco had Malaga's best chance in the 66th minute when he smashed a first-time shot through a crowd of players but Dortmund 'keeper Roman Weidenfeller punched the ball away to leave the teams goalless ahead of Tuesday's return leg in Germany.
