    I remember way back when an American Baseball team with nothing but Triple A payers was upgraded to the Major League. They were grossly outclassed by the the entire league. But the were fun to watch as they were somewhat unpredictable. One time, the center fielder snagged the ball way back (deep) in Center Field. He knew the runner was going fot home and the run. Normally, because of the distance, a fielder would throw the ball to the second baseman or the short stop (both infielders) who would the rifle it to the catcher. However, as he knew that would give the runner time to beat the throw, he instead, in a remarkable play, threw the ball straight to the catcher just in time for the catcher to tag the runner out. They still lost the game, but play had everybody on their feet. For many of the fans, that one play was worth the admission.
    Of course, eventually, through experience and acquisitions, the Angels became a championship team. But that single play remains one for the books.

    Can you see a surprise on the cards here or will it be Madrid as expected?

    Dortmund are usually very sound defensively, they might snatch it 1-0 if they can keep Madrid from scoring. It will probably be Madrid though. I’m planning to watch maybe a half hour or so.

    It was a close game, Dortmund had their chances in the first half. Once Madrid scored from a set piece it was only going to go one way.
