Doctoral thesis

Do you remember the “Real Madrid of the 1990s”? Back then, Juventus Turin dominated European club football in a similar way to Real in recent years. Alessandro Del Piero and Zinedine Zidane were similar luminaries to Real’s Jude Bellingham and Vinicius Junior today. And yet, after the 1:3 defeat in the Champions League final against Dortmund, the Juve players were still dizzy for hours after the final whistle. At least that’s how I remember it, because I felt the same way during my school-leaving trip. So, Dortmunders: beating Real is not a school-leaving thesis, but more like a doctoral thesis. It’s possible – you are unique, not plagiarized.

Shot in the knee

It is doubtful whether the negative headlines and the shitstorm on social media will help Dortmund in the showdown at Wembley Stadium, where the Black and Yellows already lost a Champions League final in 2013 – against Bayern. The premium sponsorship deal with the arms company Rheinmetall caused a stir, not surprisingly. It was a shot in the foot that rubbed off on the team, which had to rise above itself anyway to be able to cause problems for the “White Ballet” – the record winners in the “premier class” with 14 titles. Real Madrid prevailed. Perhaps not until the 93rd or 122nd minute. Late goals are the Spaniards’ speciality.
