What the reality calls for is that Real Madrid will need to win 3-0 next Tuesday to turnaround that semi final of Champions League & thus eliminate Borussia Dortmund. This in itself is possible, what is unlikely is that Real Madrid will keep the Germans from scoring. That is, Real Madrid must not allow Dortmund to score, & this in my opinion is nearly impossible.
A club like Real Madrid must look towards turning around this difficult semi-final tie because it is what is expected from a Football Club of this dimension, with its impressive history, with the star-studded squad that it has, the profile of Coach & for the respect to its fans & supporters. It is correct that Real Madrid has already began its self-psychology of believing in the comeback & building up the atmosphere to create & allow a possible night of historical magic.
But lets be realistic, I would not bet on Real Madrid eliminating Borussia Dortmund. Yes, Real Madrid may win the game & save some pride, but I do not see how or believe that Real Madrid can keep Borussia Dortmund scoreless for 90 miniutes. I do think nothing is impossible, & least in Football, but the keeping Borussia scoreless, the vital element of the equation, is almost impossible seen what has been seen. The true winner will be the local press & TVs in their promotion of the "second coming of the Football Jesus to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium". I hope the fall & the let down with not be so hard.
I pray that I am proved wrong. I would enjoy to receive a barrage of criticism next Tuesday late night for being an unbeliever. It would be a pleasure, if it means that Spanish Football has a Club in the Champions League Final, & I say this for FC Barcelona as well which has another miracle to perform if they are to get through.
