ST LOUIS (LALATE) – Real Madrid vs. Borussia Dortmund 2014 (en vivo live score results below) heads into the first leg of their UEFA Champions League Results for the quarterfinals today. The soccer match for Wednesday April 2, 2014 features two scoring powerhouses looking to advance in the Champions League. But which one will pick up the win?
Today’s Real Madrid vs. Borussia Dortmund 2014 futbol game (start time 11:45 am PST) reinforces the importance of scoring. The UEFA Champions League uses an aggregate scoring. So a win doesn’t advance a team. Rather the most goals scored in two games does.
Real is coming off of two losses and three wins in their last five games. Borussia in turn has two wins, one draw and two losses in their last five matches. Real’s last UCL match was against Schalke 04, final score 3-1. Since then, however, Real has been beat by Barcelona and Sevilla in the PRD games but beat Rayo.
This week, Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti told Real Madrid’s news site his thoughts about the lineups. “Robert Lewandowski is a big loss for them. But they have Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who can take advantage of Lewandowski’s absence. He’s a great player and I remember him well from last year when he was at St Etienne.” Ancelotti added “Things like that can happen in the Champions League so we’ve got to be warned.”
But Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp told Marca news this week that he believes his squad is the underdogs.”Given our budget and the injuries we’ve got, there’s no doubt we’re the underdogs.” He added “Real have added some class players in (Gareth) Bale and Isco.” For live score results today click HERE and for all Champions League results this week click HERE.
