UEFA Champions League Preview: Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund to Face at the Santiago Bernabeu

THE LATEST UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE NEWS – Bundesliga champions Borussia Dortmund, who are on top of Group D in this year’s Champions League group stage, have surprised many after beating La Liga champions Real Madrid 2-1 in their last home match. Can the Die Borussen win with ease against Los Blancos at their next game at the Santiago Bernabeu?

Dortmund’s seven points – two wins against Ajax and Real Madrid and one draw from Manchester City, has brought great advantage for the German side, considering that they are part of the league’s “Group of Death” this season. Madrid’s previous loss to Dortmund, preceded by two wins over Ajax and Manchester City, led them to drop to second place with six points.

With Madrid appearing lacklustre in form as seen in their sluggish La Liga start this season, a home defeat against an impressive Dortmund looks possible. While manager Jürgen Klopp appears to be in control of the German side, disputes within Jose Mourinho’s dressing room might further drag their Champions League campaign downwards. Rumours of current spats against key players such as Iker Casillas and Sergio Ramos have surrounded the Portuguese manager lately, while Cristiano Ronaldo’s ongoing problems could further endanger the side.
