dortmund surprises in semi final against psg

Borussia Dortmund did something very surprising. They beat the powerful Paris St-Germain team to make it to the Champions League final. This is the biggest game in European club soccer. Dortmund had not been in the final for 11 years. The score over the two-leg semi-final tie was:

The biggest moment was early in the second half. PSG missed an easy chance to equalize at 1-1 on aggregate when Zaire-Emery hit the post instead of the open net. Soon after, defender Mats Hummels scored with a Hummels second half header to make the aggregate score 2-0 to Dortmund.

After that, PSG tried very hard to score but kept hitting the post and crossbar. They hit the woodwork six times in the two games! Mbappe, their best player who is joining Real Madrid soon, also hit the bar. The referee did not give them a penalty kick when it looked like he might.

Dortmund’s center backs Hummels and Nico Schlotterbeck were amazing at stopping Mbappe from scoring. Their on-loan player Sancho from Manchester United also ran a lot to help the team defense.

Getting to the final is a huge deal for Dortmund. They have not been doing well in their own league this season. They will play in the final on June 1 at the famous Wembley Stadium in London, England after their 2-0 aggregate win. It could be an all-German final if Bayern Munich can beat Real Madrid.

While PSG have many superstar players, Dortmund played very well as a team with defender Mats Hummels scoring a crucial Hummels second half header to surprise everyone and make the Champions League final by a 2-0 score on aggregate. They will try to win the big trophy for only the second time after 1997.
