Madrid sympathise with Barca and take a 4-1 hit at Dortmund

If things go the way the German semi finalists want we are looking at an all German Champions league final after Borussia Dortmund inflicted a stinging 4-1 victory over Real Madrid last night.

Real Madrid went the same way as FC Barcelona and the only consolation Madrid brings home is a precious away goal. How precious a goal that is remains to be seen when the two clubs lock horns next week in the decider at the Santiago Bernabéu stadium.

It was like watching the Bayern Munich v Barca game all over again and it appears that both German clubs have done their respective homework on their Spanish opposition.

Both final tests are next week and as we all know, anything can happen. Is Barca  due a second historic comeback against Bayern? Will Real Madrid find at least four goals at the Bernabéu? Next week will provide all the answers to these two dilemas.

Robert Lewandowski was the hit man for Borussia and struck four times to nail the Madrid coffin shut tight.Without a shadow of a doubt, number 9 Lewandowski will be the player on everyone’s lips until next week’s crunch game.

Polish striker Lewandowski will also be attracting attention for a possible move in the summer if he is allowed to leave Borussia Dortmund. A striker of his calibre would do very well in a team like Barcelona and would add the much needed height up front that Barca so desperately lacks.

The whites could only get a breather with the defensive error by Mats Hummels. Other than that, Jose Mourinho’s team were pretty inoffensive to say the least. Dortmund knew how to take out Xabi Alonso and ended up putting him in a stranglehold that he wasn’t able to escape from.

Real Madrid now need a miracle if they are to reach the final and win their tenth European trophy.They need to put in a stellar performance that matched Dortmund’s last night if they are to continue in their quest for European greatness.

Ex player Emilio Butragueño said that Real Madrid were quite capable of scoring three or four in the Santiago Bernabéu. Next week we will find out.
