What the Hibs camp have said
Goalkeeper Murray Johnson: "Personally and collectively we're all really excited. It's going to be a huge occasion for us playing at Easter Road - we've had experience of that before, but it looks like it will be a really healthy crowd and we're playing a massive team in Europe. We're all looking forward to it and we've done all our preparation so come kick-off we'll be raring to go.”
Academy director Steve Kean said: “I think it will stand them in good stead for the future but also for the here and now. They can gauge themselves against the best in Europe. We know how much Dortmund put into their academy. They buy players from other clubs and this is a test to see where we are.
“We have done well in this competition and domestically but where are we against one of the so-called superpowers of European football.”
How Hibs reached the stage
The Easter Road side qualified for this stage via the domestic champion path having entered the tournament as winners of the 2021/22 Scottish U18 League. They then, over two-legs, defeated Molde, winning on penalties then Nantes, defeating the French side in both legs.
If Hibs were to defeat Borussia Dortmund they would enter the last 16 where they will face one of the eight group winners from the Champions League path. The eight teams are: Barcelona, Real Madrid, Liverpool, Manchester City, AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain, Sporting CP and Atletico Madrid.
