Borussia Dortmund will contest their second UEFA Champions League final after Jürgen Klopp's side progressed to the Wembley showpiece despite a frantic finale at Real Madrid CF. 

Robert Lewandowski had capped a devastating attacking display with a European Cup first – four goals in a semi-final – in the first leg but this time the onus was on Dortmund's defence. They resisted Madrid for the most part before two goals in quick succession from Karim Benzema and Sergio Ramos set up a frenetic climax, Dortmund just holding out to reach a first final since lifting the trophy in 1997.  

Match in 5

  • Dortmund reach second UEFA Champions League final
  • Benzema and Ramos goals in vain for Madrid
  • Third successive semi-final exit for Merengues
  • Dortmund slip to first defeat in this season's competition
  • German side await Bayern or Barcelona in 25 May final

Reaction

Today we were a team with character and desire, we almost did it. In the first match we were very, very bad and we have been punished for that, not for tonight.

Obviously Real are a team capable of playing quality football. They had a lot to make up for after the first leg, but in the end we deserved to go through on aggregate. We deserve to be in the final.
