For the third time this season, Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid clash in the Champions League, although much bigger stakes and a much bigger stage are added to the encounter, the first leg in the semifinal of the competition, and if you don’t know where to watch it, we’re here to help you.
In their two previous encounters, Dortmund left undefeated. They won the first time around, at home, 2-1, and were the better side in a 2-2 draw at the Santiago Bernabeu, with Mesut Ozil scoring a late equalizer.
Real Madrid are second in the Spanish La Liga and are likely to remain such, currently 13 points behind Barcelona and not enough time probably to make up the gap. They’ve lost only one league match in 2013 and drawn two more. Their only loss in the Champions League since dropping three points at Dortmund was a 2-3 defeat at Galatasaray which didn’t mean anything. Cristiano Ronaldo is the team’s top scorer in the competition with 11 goals in 10 matches, also leading the tournament this season.
Dortmund are also second in the Bundesliga, already losing all chance of somehow catching up with Bayern Munich, securing their title earlier than anyone has ever managed to. They’e undefeated this season in the Champions League, boasting a perfect record at home, including a dramatic 3-2 win over Malaga in the previous round. They’ve won their last five matches in the Bundesliga as well. Robert Lewandowski, with six goals, is their top scorer in the Champions League.
