"Where's the match report?" you probably will ask several days after the CL Cup Final in London. Yes indeed, a legitimate question! But to be honest for most of us, watching the match live at Wembley, in a London pub or at home it's very difficult to write down all our thoughts, emotions and experiences of Saturday, 25th of May, 2013.
The Dortmund fans, meanwhile, raised the roof for their team, even in
defeat. It showed immense
class, or emboldened mass drunkenness, or
perhaps some combination of the two. Which only
made me love them more.

Okay. Here we are. Just a few more than 24 hours before the biggest match of the recent history of the Ballspielverein Borussia of Dortmund. Before the Champions League final in Wembley against Bayern Munich. Who would have thought this possible at the beginning of the season? Who would have believed that Borussia would storm through the often quoted group of death with no defeat and would go on to advance from round to round, from Donezk to Malága to Madrid, with the only defeat in the whole Champions League run happening in the second leg of the semi finals at Santiago Bernabéu? It has been an incredible run so far, all of the players in black and yellow have come so close to immortality. Tomorrow, they can become legends and write history forever.

If you look for reasons why our glorious Borussia wins the final of Wembley, which is in fact neither a german nor "our" german final, you'll find many of them if you just follow your heart. You, me, all of us already know without a doubt which of the two finalists is the more awesome club.

What looked like an easy cruise to a sure three-pointer and kicking TSG Hoffenheim direction 2. Bundesliga, ended in horrible last 15 minutes. Borussia Dortmund wasn't able to hold on to an early lead and so two late penalties by Salihovic gave Hoffenheim a vital win.

After a long season with a lot of midweek
matches, Borussia is on the home stretch. Many Warm Up and Match Reports have
been written and nearly all available football phrases have been used. Right
now, there is only one match left before Borussia will contest in one of the
most important matches in the club history. But before, we have the possibility
to put the icing on the cake of this beautiful season by sending TSG Hoffenheim
back to the depths of the eighth division.

In times when the (German) football world revolves around Wembley and nothing else seems to matter, it is odd to travel to a city like Wolfsburg (Could one actually call this assembly of cars, factories and car factories a city?) and play a Bundesliga game that is of no importance at all.

This Saturday, at 3.30 pm Borussia’s last away-game of the current Bundesliga season will take place in Wolfsburg. Although our 2nd place (and consequently also the qualification for the Champions League 2013/14) is achieved, this match is not necessarily unimportant. On the one hand we still have a score to settle with the Vfl after they unfortunately defeated us last year, and on the other hand this can be seen as the first test for the final against our dear rival Bayern in the Wembley Stadium.

In a match more intense than expected, the
reigning champion Borussia Dortmund achieved an in the end satisfying draw
against the upcoming champion and Champions League final opponent Buyern
Munich. Despite the absent importance caused by this fixture at this time of
the season, both teams did show what this matchup is really and will always be
about: prestige. And like so often in the last couple of years, they offered
much excitement to the audience. As a final rehearsal before Wembley, both squads
showed a passionate performance without really giving 100%. And although the personnel rotation was given
on both sides, it was obvious that the long season filled by a lot of midweek
matches left its marks.

The clash of the Bundesliga giants is coming up this Saturday and nobody seems to care. In recent years the duels between our beloved Borussia and the Bavarian moneybags have been the highlights of the season. Matches to remember. Matches were championships were won and lost. And then the unforgettable night in Berlin where we made the historic double reality. Saturday’s match is about nothing much. Bayern will remain first, we’ll end up second. The rest of the season is overshadowed by the historic all-German final in Wembley.

Tuesday, April 30th, 2013 will be the day always remembered for Borussia Dortmund advancing to the Final of the Champions League 2012/2013. However, nobody will remember the day for the loss against Real Madrid though. Maybe the last fifteen minutes of the match will stay in the minds of the Borussian supporters for the apprehension of the third goal, but in the end, the loss and the last minutes don't matter. Borussia survived the Bernabéu, survived Real Madrid and is one of the two finalists in this year's Champions League. Even two days later, it still sounds unreal but equally awesome and legendary.
