Real Madrid On to the Finals

Posted: Apr. 17th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Considering this is the third straight year Real Madrid has made it to the final four of the Champions League, it's not much of a surprise that the superstar team has made it to the finals. However, as Madrid will be going against the (seemingly) comeback kings of from Dortmund, it's hard to call a clear victor just yet. 

Needing two goals in second-half stoppage time, Borussia Dortmund’s Champions League hopes appeared bleak.

What followed was one of the most dramatic late comebacks in the tournament’s history.

Marco Reus and Felipe Santana scored in injury time, and Dortmund advanced to the semifinals for the first time in 15 years by beating Malaga 3-2 Wednesday night following a scoreless first leg last week.

“I just can’t really believe it,” said Neven Subotic, the Dortmund defender who grew up in Salt Lake City and played for the US Under-20 team. “This is the craziest moment in all of my footballing career.”
