  • We know all about the strengths of Mourinho's Madrid army, so here are some of the best bits from Dortmund's Champions League campaign so far...

  • Dortmund are the only unbeaten team in this year's tournament. Will yesterday's revelations about Mario Gotze be enough to throw them off course?

  • 79 minutes: What do you do when you're 4-1 down? Bring on Kaka. Not bad reinforcements on the Madrid bench, but they will need to play out their skin if they're going to turn this around now.

  • Oh wait. Is that four goals Lewandowski's scored? The striker's showing he can count tonight as well as play football..

    4/24/2013 8:25:12 PM
  • 82 minutes: Lewandowski is the first player to score four goals in a Champions League semi-final since Ferenc Puskas in 1960. Bet you didn't know that..

  • 85 minutes: Dortmund have energy in bagfulls. They again work the ball down the flank to break into the area but it comes to nothing. The Germans have reacted first all evening and they have kept Ronaldo under an effective close eye. Let's all raise a glass of Erdinger Weissbier.

  • 88 minutes: That's a chance for Ronaldo. The dangerman breaks past the Dortmund defence but Weidenfeller is quick off his line to close down the opportunity. He's taken one for the team there but some magic water gets the keeper back on his feet.
    4/24/2013 8:33:38 PM
  • 90 minutes: Four minutes of injury-time in Germany. Dortmund make a substitution to run down the clock.
    4/24/2013 8:34:10 PM
  • 92 minutes: What's the German for El Clasico? Another chance for Madrid, this time from a corner, but Varane send his half-volley over the bar.
    4/24/2013 8:36:08 PM
  • 94 minutes - FULL TIME: Madrid play one final ball into the area but that's the lot. It's full-time and Mourinho has just made a quick and shifty exit down the tunnel.
    4/24/2013 8:39:04 PM
  • So if my calculations are right, which they should be with basic figures, that's an aggregate score of Germany 8-1 Spain. What a performance from Dortmund. They probably deserved to have the lead at half-time but they really turned it on in the second-half. Looks like every Dortmund player has kept hold of their shirt tonight and rightly-so. That's it from me, thank you for joining.
