Borussia Dortmund v Real Madrid - 24th April

Postby Hams » Sat Apr 20, 2013 8:14 pm

Dortmund beat Malaga 3-2 on Agg to reach the semi finals and did so with 2 goals in injury time to leave the Spaniards fuming!

Real Madrid won 5-3 against Galatasaray but were made to worry in the 2nd leg when the Turks lead 3-1 in the 2nd leg with 20 mins to go.

Do you have any comments or predictions for the 1st leg?

First goal in this game will be very important, Dortmund are a ridiculously fit team and will press from first to last but if Madrid score first it will be difficult for them. Both teams had some luck to get here so should be a good game.

Did you know that Borussia Dortmund have only won one of their six competitive encounters with Real Madrid (three draws, two defeats).

Any more comments or predictions?

It has been announced and confirmed by Dortmund that Gotze have agreed to join Bayern already, Lol! I do think that this will have an effect on Dortmund for the game... although they can either lose confidence and treat it with even more hunger since they know it will be the last time they play with Gotze... :P

And what a team Bayern will be next season...

I can't anything but a REal Madrid win here, neither team as impressed me thus far ,but i am expecting dortmund to get a bit of inspiration from being at home. In terms of overall quality i think Real Madrid should win because of better defenders!
3-1 real

It was NO penalty for me.

I thought Reus went down too easily and was looking for it.

Great finish by Lewandowski for that 3rd goal ,great feet right there.
Couldn't see the replay for the second goal looked offside to me ,but not sure.

FT

Dortmund 4-1 Madrid
1-0 Lewandowski 8’
2-0 Lewandowski 50’
3-0 Lewandowski 55’
4-0 Lewandowski 67’ (pen)

What a brilliant display by Dortmund tonight.

Polish striker Robert Lewandowski became the 1st to ever score a hat trick against Real Madrid in the CL.

Any comments on the result?

This game was so surprising, even more so than Bayern beating us! It was priceless too and pleasure to see Mourinho outclassed for the third time and Real spanked! WAhahaha!!@@

This has been significant as well, and cements the shift in power to the German really, their talents and level is for all to see.

Despite some luck vs Malaga though which is always needed in the CL, Dortmund showed exactly just how good they really are.

It will be interesting to see how they go after their stars leave, but Klopp appears to be a top manager, and lets see what replacements he will get and hwo Dortmund does in the next season and on.

For Mourinho, I have always thought if he succeeds in Real vs this Barca than he really proves to be the best manager, but his weaknesses have finally appeared this season, and Im glad to see it :D

Just look at that team on paper! Absolute quality! i don't know much about the keeper, but the rest of team is one of the best in Europe - even challenging Real and Barcelona. Man United seem to have a weakness in central midfield.

They definitely showed they have an excellent team tonight. A better defence too.

The dragback for the third Lewandowski goal was pure class.

Dortmund through to the final? No chance. Real Madrid will put in a performance at home, sneaking through. Maybe even the same scoreline. Don't see it? Keep watching.

By the way, I thought it was very professional of Mourinho to accept he got beaten by a better team. That instead of saying they got lucky, or whatever he has said before.
