Dortmund expect a Real Madrid backlash in Champions League

Posted on November 05, 2012 by admin

The Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels knows that Real Madrid will be out for revenge after the German side stunned the Spanish champions in the last outing. Jose Mourinho knows that his team must win, with a difficult trip to Manchester City waiting in the final Champions League game of the group.

Hummels feels that Madrid will try to steamroller the German champions and is expecting a raucous atmosphere at the Bernabeu, but is adamant that the Dortmund team can stand up to the test. The 23-year old German international knows that a draw would put his team favourite to win the group and avoid some of the best teams in the competition.

Mourinho knows that a win for Madrid would put them two points ahead of Dortmund with a better goal difference. A point at the Etihad stadium in Manchester should then guarantee top spot in the Group of Death.

If Man City lose tomorrow, they will be out of the running for the Europa league and so would probably field a weakened team in the final game against Madrid, but if they are fighting for further participation in European competition, they will be an extremely tough team to face.
