Home Sports UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FINALS- Dortmund vs Real Madrid



Dortmund is on a historic journey after their impressive run in the Champions League knockout rounds.

Many were surprised by their progress, but now, with two clean sheets in the semis against PSG, they are strong contenders for the trophy in London.

Edin Terzić anticipates having a nearly full squad to select from, with Jadon Sancho and Jamie Bynoe-Gittens overcoming illness and injury to feature in a 4-0 victory against Darmstadt on the Bundesliga’s last matchday.

Sébastien Haller’s inclusion in the squad raises hopes for his participation, while Donyell Malen, scoring his second goal in three games, is making an impact after missing the quarters and semis due to injury.

Mats Hummels is eager to face Real Madrid’s attacking prowess alongside Nico Schlotterbeck.

Marco Reus, after an emotional goodbye to Dortmund fans, has the opportunity to end his time at the club by securing their second Champions League title.

Real Madrid, with their rich history as 14-time Champions League winners, are known for their dominance in the competition.

The pressure is on the Spanish team to live up to their favorites’ status. Dortmund, with strategies to contain Real’s top scorer, including Jude Bellingham who moved to Madrid from Dortmund, will be prepared.

Without Aurélien Tchouaméni, the experience of Germany’s Toni Kroos, playing his final club game, could be crucial for Real.

David Alaba’s absence due to injury puts defensive responsibilities on Antonio Rüdiger.

The big question is who will emerge victorious after this showpiece in London?

Dortmund: Kobel – Ryerson, Hummels, Schlotterbeck, Maatsen – Sabitzer, Can (c) – Sancho, Brandt, Adeyemi – Füllkrug
