Borussia Dortmund, last season's UEFA Champions League finalist, crashed out of this year's competition at the quarterfinal stage on Tuesday, losing its two game series against Real Madrid, 3-2, despite winning the second-leg, 2-0 at home. Despite trailing 3-0 from the first-leg in Spain, Dortmund looked destined to pull off an unlikely comeback as Marco Reus scored twice in the first half following Real winger Angel Di Maria’s penalty miss.
After the game, BVB coach Jurgen Klopp said he was proud of his players for the
fight they had shown. "Neven Subotic said to me after the game, 'I couldn't be prouder of this team,'" Klopp said. "That's what the Champions League is about. We were superior
tonight, but should have scored last week. Tonight's game was so good that there is absolutely no one to blame for not qualifying. The atmosphere was awesome. We wanted to prove a point and we did
that with our incredible performance." Read the original story...
