UEFA Champions League: Real Madrid vs Borussia Dortmund: Live Open Thread

Joern Pollex

An open thread for tonight's UEFA Champions League semi-final second-leg encounter between Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund

After a historic 4-1 win at the Signal Iduna Park in last Wednesday's first-leg, former Bundesliga champions are just 90 minutes away from securing their place in the final of the 2012-13 UEFA Champions League, at the expense of former current La Liga champions Real Madrid. Sure, Dortmund are about to lose one of their star players to their rivals, and their other star players seem to be inching towards the exit too, but credit to Jurgen Klopp and indeed the team as a whole, they aren't letting that stand in their way. Rather than drop Mario Gotze and slander his name in the media, Klopp has ensured that it has been business as usual at the Westfalenstadion and, barring a major upset, he will get his reward.
