Jurgen Klopp is envisaging an “historic” night of football when his Borussia Dortmund side face Real Madrid in the second-leg of their Champions League semi-final.
The german side were strong coming out 4-1 winners in the first-leg last Wednesday, making them favourites at the Santiago Bernabeu, and the BVB boss is expecting a special evening.
“We know what can happen in football, either way, something historic will happen,” the 45-year-old told reporters at the pre-match press conference.
“If we go through, it will be historic, if Madrid turn the tie, it will be historic as well.
“My players cannot fail tomorrow, they can only give their best, there’s no doubt about this. We have to show that BVB will do everything in their power to reach the final.
“We don’t have the feeling of already being in the final. But we have built us a solid foundation, which we didn’t expect. We’re not in the final yet, but we’re fighting for it.”
Meanwhile, midfielder Ilkay Gundogan has reflected on the last three encounters against Jose Mourinho’s side, reminding that they have already taken home a positive experience from the Santiago Bernabeu earlier this season.
“We already have the experience of playing here, successfully as well, and it’s always a sensational feeling to play here in Madrid.”
Tonight will be a special one for the “only one”, let’s wait to see what he has to offer to turn around the deficit.
Tomorrow night will be no exception, it’s bound to be also magical, as the “gifted one” plans to overturn a 4 goal deficit. Last weeks game ended 4-0 in favour of the German Champions, Barcelona have a mountain to climb and Bayern munich sure hopes to make it steep for them.
One thing we are sure of is that this next two nights will unravel something great in the world of football. Embrace yourself people, its Spain versus Germany once again.
