It is, of course, possible that Dortmund overcomes a three-goal deficit to beat Real Madrid in their UEFA Champions League quarterfinal second leg on Tuesday. Stranger things have happened than a strong offensive team scoring a bunch of goals.
But there’s no question it will not only take the return of Robert Lewandowski but also a pure performance that’s as perfect as it is potent.
Borussia Dortmund: Weidenfeller, Piszczek, Friedrich, Hummels, Durm, Jojic, Kirch, Grosskreutz, Mkhitaryan, Reus, Lewandowski
Real Madrid: Pepe, Ramos, Coentrão, Benzema, Bale, Xabi Alonso, Carvajal, Modric, Di María, Illarra
