Real Madrid CAN get revenge on Dortmund

Posted on April 30, 2013 by admin

Real Madrid have played Borussia Dortmund three times already this season and have yet to win a game. That will count for nothing tonight, however, as long as the Madrid players run out onto the pitch at the Bernabeu ready to give everything for the improbable comeback.

It would not be the first time that a Real Madrid side pulled off a miracle like this. Previous statistics do offer some hope to Jose Mourinho and his players, as Madrid have won 17 of their 23 home games against German teams. Three of those wins would have been enough to see us into the final. 4-0 against Munchengladbach in 1985, 5-1 against Cologne in 1986 and 3-0 against Bayer Leverkusen in 1998.

Also, under Mourinho, Madrid have won by three goals plenty of times. Incredibly, nearly half of the games at the Bernabeu have been won by three goals or more. The 4-1 scoreline needed to take the tie into extra time has been achieved in the Champions League six times at the Bernabeu and twice away, including this season at Ajax.

This does not take away the fact that Dortmund are very good opponents, but the players and coach will know that they have the ability to do it. With Ronaldo, anything is possible.
