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

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

Joern Pollex

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.


REAL MADRID (4-2-3-1): Diego Lopez; Michael Essien, Raphael Varane, Sergio Ramos, Fabio Coentrao; Luka Modric, Xabi Alonso; Angel di Maria, Mesut Ozil, Cristiano Ronaldo; Gonzalo Higuain

BORUSSIA DORTMUND (4-2-3-1): Roman Weidenfeller; Lukasz Piszczek, Neven Subotic, Mats Hummels, Marcel Schmelzer; Sven Bender, Ilkay Gundogan; Jakub Blaszczykowski, Mario Gotze, Marco Reus; Robert Lewandowski
