Real-Borussia Dortmund, who will climb to the top of Europe? The yellow and blacks dream of the feat

All in one night, ninety minutes to glory. The real Madrid chasing the fifteenth Champions League, yet another triumph to add to a cabinet full of trophies; The Borussia Dortmund wants to grant an encore 27 years after the unexpected victory against Marcello Lippi’s Juventus.

Carlo Ancelotti, who has already won the top European competition four times as a coach, must dispel the last doubt: who will go in goal between Lunin and Courtois? The Belgian is the favourite, while Carvajal, Rudiger, Nacho and Mendy will play in defence. Then practically no surprises, with Valverde, Kroos (at the last dance with the Blancos) and Camavinga (preferred to compatriot Tchouameni) in the middle and Bellingham behind Vinicius and Rodrygo.

Edin Terzic has dreamed of this match since he was a child. A great yellow and black fan, the 41-year-old from Menden will try to break the bank by giving confidence to the team that eliminated Paris Saint-Germain in the semi-final. In front of Kobel are Ryerson, Hummels, Schlotterbeck and Maatsen, in midfield there will be Emre Can and Sabitzer, with Adeyemi, Brandt and Sancho behind Fullkrug.
