Real-Borussia Dortmund, the journey to Wembley: PSG and City eliminated from the finalists

All in one night, ninety minutes to glory. Real Madrid is chasing their fifteenth Champions League, yet another triumph to add to a very rich trophy cabinet; Borussia Dortmund wants to give another 27 years after the unexpected victory against Marcello Lippi’s Juventus.

Carlo Ancelotti’s team arrived at Wembley after a group (with Napoli, Union Berlin and Braga) which they passed without too much effort and with full points. Leipzig, Manchester City and Bayern Munich were the opponents in the knockout phase, all defeated due to a matter of details.

The Germans, after having brilliantly overcome – and in first place – the “group of death” (the one with PSG, Milan and Newcastle), eliminated PSV Eindhoven in the round of 16, Atletico in the quarter-finals and the Parisians in the semi-finals.
