Real Madrid lose 4 – 1 to Borussia Dortmund

Ronaldo scored Real Madrid's only goal

Only one day after Bayern Munich’s 4-0  result against Barcelona the German football again showed its supremacy on Wednesday night.

This time it was the turn of Borussia Dortmund who also scored four in a 4-1 thrashing of Real Madrid. It has been two days that have humbled Spanish football with Germany looking down on the rest of Europe.  

An all-German Champions League final now looks on the cards at Wembley on May 25.

It was Poland striker Robert Lewandowski who netted all four goals in the semi-final, first leg.

Dortmund were as clinical as Bayern as they floored Jose Mourinho’s Real who narrowly avoided suffering their worst defeat in the competition. Previously AC Milan beat them 5-0 in what was then the European Cup in the 1988/89 campaign.

Lionel Messi had failed to shine for a subdued Barcelona at Bayern on his return from a hamstring injury, and Real star Cristiano Ronaldo, apart from scoring the visitors only goal, was not outstanding in this match.
