Arvind: that's exactly what I was thinking.

Toon: Yeah we're really showing what we can do despite the manager not having a clue how it happened. :P

Hello and welcome to the return leg of the Dortmund vs Bayern champions league round. Dortmund have won this tie. There is no way Bayern will come back from a 6-1 drubbing. Even if Bayern score 5 without reply then Dortmund will go through on away goals.Las nights quarter's were fascinating with Chelsea beating Man U and Athletico Madrid beating Barcelona on away goals.They met on the weekend in the league with Bayern edging it 1-0.It was a very boring game.
Here are the starting line-ups

Dortmund: M.ter Stegen, M.Schmelzer, M.Hummels, F.Santana, G.Sakai, M.Leitner, I.Gundogan, M.Gotze, J.Blaszczykowski, M.Reus, S.Rondon

Bayern: M.Neuer, D.Contento, H.Badstuber, J.Kirchoff, P.Lahm, J.Martinez, L.Gustavo, B.Schweinsteiger, X.Shaqiri, F.Ribery, M.Mandzukic

Kick off


23rd minute: Gotze has the ball just inside his own half. Gustavo puts the pressure on him and he turns round and passes it to OH NO.IT's gone straight to Mandzukic who's now clean through. He hits it and WHAT A SAVE.ter Stegen with the brilliant save.Mandzukic did all he could.He's done nothing wrong there it's just a magnificent save.

44th minute: Leitner sprays the ball out wide to Reus. Reus slides the ball through to Gundogan who meets it at the by line. He fires it across goal and no one meets it.Wait it's fallen to Blaszczykowski who has to score and he's hi the post.How has he missed that? He had so much time. It somehow remains 0-0.

71st minute: Corner to be taken by Ribery and he whips it in.Someone's gone down and the ref has blown for it. I think it's Kirchoff.No Martin I think he's given a foul by Kirchoff, he has. The bayern players are surrounding the ref. They cannot believe it.

Final score: Dortmund 0-0 Bayern.

With such a huge first leg win I would have expected Bayern to come out all guns blazing but to hav only 3 highlight plays is poor...awesome job on keeping them shut out having done an insanely good job in the first leg

Yeah, it was a crap game. I didn't really care because I knew we were through.

Dortmund put a dent in Stuttgart's title hopes

After Dortmund's triumph in the Champions League over Bayern they had a difficult fixture at home to VFB Stuttgart. Lars Ricken said he was confident of winning the game with the squad and that tiredness wouldn't be an issue. He was right. It was a fairly straight forward victory for the yellows with goals coming from Rondon and El Shaarawy. Rondon's an exquisite volley into the top corner from a good Reus cross. El Shaarawy with a tap in from 3 yards.It left Stuttgart 5 points off Dortmund and 3 off Bayern Munich.Dortmund are still ahead of Die Bayern but only by 2 points due to Bayerns league victory over Dortmund in between the Champions league ties.

Ricken achieves his goal

Lars Ricken and Dortmund made it into the Champions League final last night with a 0-0 draw at the Juventus Stadium. In case you missed last week's tie. Dortmund won it 1-0 with Mats Hummels header from a Reus free-kick. Dortmund should have won by more last week and they deserved to go through into the final after the dominating performance in Germany. The old lady did not take charge in Turin and Dortmund managed to keep the game level. Overall it was a very boring tie. It was disappointing. When the draw was done we expected an explosive tie, especially after last year's meeting in which Juventus came out on top.
Dortmund will play Athletico Madrid in the final after they beat Chelsea 2-1 on aggregate. Goals from Koke and Suarez settled the tie after Lewandowski gave Chelsea the lead at Stamford Bridge.
Lars Ricken said after the match that he was confident of winning the Champions League. If they do win it Ricken will join the exclusive list of people who have won the Champions League/European cup as a manager and a player.
