Dortmund has a wide door to enter the final, Real has to climb a mountain in the second leg

Dortmund 4-1 Real Madrid.

But compared to a Barca team that lost four goals and the poor performance of both the team and outstanding individuals like Iniesta, Xavi, especially Messi, and it seemed like there was no hope of turning the situation around, Real yesterday

Dortmund has a wide door to enter the final, Real has to climb a mountain in the second leg

In the 2003-2004 season, the Champions League witnessed a similar case to Real yesterday.

Can Mourinho and his team recreate the miracle of La Coruna nine seasons ago?

Goalkeeper Weidenfeller no less than twice denied Ronaldo the opportunity to score.

The way Dortmund, a young team, without any world-class superstars, defeated a powerful Real, invested in tons of money and led by a monster like Mourinho, is no less impressive than the way Bayern handled it.

Dortmund does not need to wet the grass to disrupt their opponent’s playing style – like many Barca players accuse Bayern of using tricks.

However, if Lewandowski is offside, meaning referee Kuipers made a mistake in that situation, the German team’s results will not be any less brilliant.

Real suddenly became small in Westfallen, where Dortmund became a giant.

Real yesterday had only one difference in the starting lineup compared to the information Mourinho announced the day before kickoff.

Dortmund, meanwhile, remains loyal to the attacking, speedy, and variable style of play based on the coordinated situations of the Reus – Lewandowski – Goetze devil triangle, alongside a very effective Gundogan in the role of igniting light from the middle.

Real did not have any shot during the first 20 minutes of the match and it was not until the 24th minute that they had their first clear chance when Ronaldo took a hard and hard direct free kick, forcing Weidenfeller to use all his skills to save it (see

Like the first leg of the group stage in which they won 2-1 in the second half after being equalized by Real in the first half, Dortmund accelerated into the second half and was rewarded with a goal to increase the score to 2-1 just after

Not having time to regain balance after this defeat, Real conceded a third goal just six minutes later and the one who punished the away defense this time was still Lewandowski.

Dortmund almost had a fourth goal a few minutes later, if goalkeeper Diego Lopez did not excellently push the ball over the bar after Gundogan’s shot.

Real still has some faint hope thanks to Ronaldo’s goal at Westfallen.

Mourinho did everything he could in the remaining time, sending Di Maria, Benzema and Kaka onto the field to strengthen the attack.

Losing 1-4, a mountain-high challenge awaits Mourinho and his team next week.
