Borussia Dortmund vs Real Madrid. Shape of the Teams

The time has come. The Champions League will be underway in less than 72 hours. Real Madrid always comes to mind first when one mentions the Champions League Final. 


The Spaniards have the chance to win their fifteenth Champions League on Saturday, and the betting odds certainly back that idea. However, Los Blancos should remain cautious, as recent results in the Europa and Conference Leagues saw German champions Leverkusen fall to Atalanta and Olympiacos secure their first European title, bringing the trophy to Greece for the first time in history. 

This highlights that any team reaching the final is a formidable opponent.

Real Madrid will enter the game without Aurélien Tchouaméni and David Alaba, and Lunin has confirmed he won’t recover in time. On Borussia Dortmund’s side, absences include Ramy Benseibani and Julien Duranville, with Sébastien Haller uncertain to make it in time.

It has been a long time since any team defeated Real Madrid, as no team in Spain, except Atlético de Madrid, has found the solution. In a nutshell, this is why Carlo Ancelotti’s team won the league. 

While Dortmund’s form is far from catastrophic, there have been a few subpar performances. The Schwarz-Gelb surprisingly lost to Mainz 05 (3-0) and rivals RB Leipzig (4-1). Dortmund has been unable to keep clean sheets, which could be problematic against Real Madrid. Nonetheless, BVB finished its Bundesliga campaign on a high note, scoring four past Darmstadt.

Borussia Dortmund vs Real Madrid, Prediction, Odds

Some things never change, and one of them is Real Madrid being the favorites to win the Champions League. Rare are the years where Madrid fails to perform at the highest level in international competition. 

Real Madrid will arrive at Wembley Stadium with the hope of taking the trophy home. Dortmund has memories of Real Madrid, and despite it being almost a decade ago, the experience still lingers. 

The final is also Marco Reus’s last opportunity to win the Champions League, as the club legend announced his retirement. Despite coming close, he has never won the competition, and if Borussia Dortmund is going to win the trophy, it would be for Marco.

This will also be the first time Jude Bellingham faces his former team since donning the white jersey. He is unlikely to celebrate, but he certainly won’t shy away from the challenge. 

The Englishman has been an absolute star, and few teams figured out how to stop him. Bellingham roams the field everywhere simultaneously. Dortmund will aim to keep the game more controlled, as they cannot afford to play at a frantic pace; Nico Schlotterbeck, Emre Can, and Jadon Sancho would prefer not to engage in a ping-pong style game.

On the contrary, the likes of Eduardo Camavinga, Vinicius Jr. and Bellingham would love it if the game is played at a faster tempo. 

Additionally, Real Madrid’s expertise gives them an edge – most of the squad already won the trophy with Ancelotti in 2022. The same cannot be said for Dortmund. 

However, the Germans should not be underestimated. They will rely heavily on reaching striker Niclas Füllkrug in the box. Dominant with his physique, it is likely that Rüdiger will be tasked with marking him, as was the case with Erling Haaland.

Borussia Dortmund vs Real Madrid Betting Tip

Despite the record favouring German teams against their Spanish counterparts (as Atlético Madrid learned), an upset on Saturday seems unlikely. 

The Spaniards are well-rested, only missing Tchouaméni, and are likely to showcase a dynamic Jude Bellingham, who will have the opportunity to shine in his homeland once more.

This match also serves as excellent preparation ahead of the Euros, which begin in two weeks. Real Madrid had a flawless season despite multiple injuries and will look to finish on a high note. 

With the Spaniards often scoring first and forcing their opponents deep – and Dortmund’s defence struggling to keep clean sheets, Los Blancos are expected to score first and be crowned European Champions.
