Ask anyone at the start of the season who would partake in the UCL final this season. The likelihood of someone saying Dortmund – including their own fans – would be next to nil. From the group stage, the German giants have been overlooked and underestimated. Yet, here they are, playing in their third UCL showpiece. The 1997/98 winners will have their greatest test yet though.

Having finished fifth in the Bundesliga, coupled with Germany earning an extra Champions League place for next season due to their season performance, Dortmund is already assured a spot in the UCL next term. However, if they do prevail in Saturday’s final, then Germany will have six teams in the UCL next season. That would be a first for any country in the competition.

Competing in their 18th European Cup/Champions League final, Real Madrid just never knows when to give up in this tournament. They are somehow unbeaten in the UCL this campaign, despite coming dangerously close to defeat in the semifinals. Carlo Ancelotti’s side already has the LaLiga title under their belt. Now, they are searching for their sixth UCL trophy in the last 11 years.

This is Real’s ninth appearance in the final under the Champions League’s current guise. With an astounding record of 14-3 in UCL finals, this team is seemingly unbeatable at this stage. Their last defeat at the hurdle came in 1980/81 to Liverpool. That is eight consecutive UCL final wins.

Simply put, the Borussia Dortmund players will have to play the game of their lives in order to beat the seemingly unbeatable. Some will even go as far as to say this is Real’s final to lose. While Dortmund has shown that they should seldom be underestimated, we are talking about a different kettle of fish. Only one team has defeat Real all season, that being local rivals Atlético Madrid.

Interestingly, Real has faced all four Germans to participate in the UCL this term. Their record in those six games are 4-2-0. It has been eight years since a Bundesliga side managed to defeat Los Blancos in the knockout rounds. That shows just how heavy a task this is for Die Schwarzgelben.
