won the first leg 4-1, thanks largely to a superb performance from striker Robert Lewandowski as the Pole scored all four goals for Jurgen Klopp’s men.

Of course, Real have the players capable of winning this tie by three goals or more on home soil, but they really need to raise their game from the performance last week.

Jose Mourinho’s side didn’t look themselves in Germany and although he scored their only goal on the night, Cristiano Ronaldo wasn’t at his best and found life difficult against Dortmund’s defenders.

The Portuguese is going to be key this evening though and if the hosts are to have any chance of reaching the final, he needs to put in one of his best displays in a Real shirt. It isn’t much of a surprise to see Ronaldo leading the way in terms of goal-scoring markets and you can back him at 11/4 to score first.

What Mourinho needs is an early goal from his players. If he gets that, then the away side – who don’t have much Champions League experience – could get nervous and make sloppy mistakes.

This tie is far from over, although Real need to be at their best right from the off. The Bernabeu must be a cauldron of noise as well as when it is rocking, it is one of the toughest places in Europe for a visiting side to come and take the spoils.

As for Borussia Dortmund, they would have been delighted – if somewhat shocked – by the score in the first leg and although they have one foot in the final, Klopp cannot allow any complacency from his men.

Lewandowski enjoyed the best night of his career last week and as we have seen all season, he only needs a little bit of space in the box to put the ball in the back of the night. With support from the likes of Marco Reus and Mario Gotze, the striker is sure to get a chance of two tonight.

The Poland international could be good value at 11/2 to score first.

What Dortmund need to do is come to the Bernabeu and play their natural game as if they sit back, Real could put them under real pressure.

An early goal for the Bundesliga outfit all but kills this tie and with the football we have seen them play in Champions League, there is no doubt they can come here and win.

These two met in the group stages and the game at the Bernabeu ended in a 2-2 and a repeat score-line would delight Dortmund.

This is all set to be a cracking tie, especially as Real have no choice but to attack. It gets underway from 7.45pm tonight.
