[ad#m1] Westfalenstadion will see Borussia Dortmund take on Jose Mourinho’s Real Madrid. Things are put into perspective after Bayern defeated Barcelona ruthlessly in the 1st semi final. Mario Gotze’s performance in this match is bound to be scrutinized till death after his big money move to Bayern.
Interestingly Mourinho has already named his starting line up for the fixture. He said in the pre match press conference, “We will play with Diego Lopez, Sergio Ramos, Pepe, Raphael Varane, Fabio Coentrao, Sami Khedira, Xabi Alonso, Mesut Ozil, Gonzalo Higuain, Cristiano Ronaldo and hopefully Angel Di Maria,”.
Nothing new, he has done it before and the Portuguese also has a habit of changing it on the day of the match. So, do not be surprised if their is change or two in the aforementioned starting 11.

For Madrid, Arbeloa is serving his suspension and cannot take part and Marcelo is injured. Jurgen Klopp has a full strength side in his disposal and would want to repeat the result when they won 2-1 against Real. However, that Madrid side was not as strong as this one.
