UEFA released the Champions League team in a post via its website after this week’s round of 16 first-leg fixtures on Wednesday night.
Adeyemi was impressive for Dortmund against Chelsea as he scored the only goal of the match to give his team a first-leg advantage ahead of the second-leg at Stamford Bridge next month.
