Real Madrid crash out to Borussia Dortmund


Real Madrid went crashing out of the Champions League last night to German outfit Borussia Dortmund. Despite two late goals by the whites from Sergio Ramos and Karim Benzema, it wasn’t enough as they lost by 4-3 on aggregate.

The last 15 minutes of the game was frantic with Real Madrid pushed up high into the visitor’s half with just three defenders at the rear to fall back on. It was a brave effort but came far too late as Borussia gave another exhibition piece of football on how to suppress the Spanish team.

Jose Mourinho wasn’t pleased either with one of his favourite referees, Howard Webb. Webb failed to blow up for a handball by Mats Hummels on the edge of the box, opting to play the advantage which eventually came to nothing.

After the match, Mourinho spoke about the possibility of leaving Real madrid for West London club Chelsea:

He said: “It’s difficult to make a decision because I like this club.
“I like the president and we have built a team that is ready to do big things.
“I haven’t made a decision yet because I have a contract and I respect the club and the president.
“It’s why I want to win the Copa del Rey final and finish second in the league.
“I want to sit down with my president, my friend, and decide the best for me. At the end of the season I will speak.”

Tonight we have the other semi final between FC Barcelona and Bayern Munich and if anyone can turn around a four goal deficit, it will be Barca, make no mistake.

Barca’s Dani Alves reckons that the Catalans have to be two goals up at half time to be within a chance of reaching the final.

Alves stated: “We must be 2-0 up at half-time, that’s a minimum requirement.
“We’ll give it everything. For us this match is like the final itself and we are obliged to give 200 per cent.
“If we score quickly it will help us because that will get Bayern thinking and nerves could set in.
“We are a team that increases its level of performance in our very worst moments and now we need to be at our very best.
“Bayern might be a big team — but so are we. And if the Germans arrive here relaxed in any way at all that will be a big error. Now is the moment for revenge.”

Barca have Leo Messi who is 100% fit and up for this clash and if Barca ever needed a miracle from the little man, then tonight’s the night.

Barca know however that Bayern are a superb team and that they will have to throw everything at Bayern in order to be in the final. The match kicks off at 20:45 tonight at the Camp Nou and the atmosphere will be amazing. Expect to see one of the best matches this season tonight.
