 Borussia Dortmund made an 2:0 home win over FSV Mainz 05 on the last round of the German Bundesliga. From the last five league games, the team from manager Jürgen Klopp won five times, for example the home leg against FC Augsburg (4:2). The last defeat happened at the derby against FC Schalke 04 (1:2). On the league table, Dortmund is on the 2nd position with eight points advance on Bayer Leverkusen. Dortmund won all of their five home games in the Champions League so far, for example the game against Real Madrid (2:1). In the season of 12/13 Dortmund is unbeaten in the Champions League so far.
Real Madrid are also going to lose their domestic title this season with Barcelona 13 points ahead of them in la liga.  This takes the pressure off Madrid though and allows them to concentrate on this fixture rather than domestic games.  In the quarter finals Madrid easily won the first leg 3-0 at home to Galatasaray but suffered a scare in the second leg where they were 3-1 down going into the late stages but managed to score again to ease the pressure. 
These clubs met in the group stages of this seasons Champions League and Dortmund got the better of the matches.  The first match in Germany was won 2-1 by Dortmund then the second game in Madrid finished 2-2 with Madrid equalising in the last minute.

 Borussia Dortmund (4-2-3-1): Weidenfeller; Schmelzer, Piszczek, Hummels, Subotic; Gundogan, Nuri Sahin; Grosskreutz, Gotze, Reus; Lewandowski.
