Bosz: Madrid Are Not UCL Favourites

Peter Bosz of Dortmund believes that Real Madrid are not UCL favourites, despite losing 3-2 to the defending champions.

Dortmund came from 2-0 down to draw level, courtesy of two quick-fire goals from Aubameyang.

However, nine minutes from time Lucas Vazquez scored the winner, but Bosz does not see them as favourites, despite Zidane tinkering with his squad.

“After today’s game, I don’t know if it is possible to say that Real Madrid are the favourite to win the Champions League,” Bosz said during his news conference.

“They were not very strong tonight.

“Although, it is true that they rested many players and they are one of the favourites.”

Dortmund will turn their attention to the Europa League after finishing third in the group, 11 points behind second-placed Madrid and 14 adrift of table-toppers Tottenham.

“We wanted to continue in the Champions League,” Bosz added. “Now we will put everything we have into the Europa League.

“When the injured players return we’ll improve. We still have to improve our level of performance, today went very badly. We showed at times that we can play football very well.”
