Lewandowski: BVB Only Have A Small Chance

Robert Lewandowski returns for the second leg against Real Madrid, but is realistic about Dortmund’s small chances to reach the Champions League semi-final.

The Polish striker has been involved in 50 percent of his side’s Champions League goals since the start of last season, with the highlight of putting four goals past Real Madrid in last year’s semi-final game in Dortmund.

However, Lewandowski knows that, compared to last year, Dortmund have a weaker squad with five first team starters side-lined and Mario Gotze leaving the club in the summer.

"We only have a small chance of going through. We can't compare this year with last year,” Lewandowski said.

“We can't expect to put four goals past Real again. We're going to play at full pelt with our fans' support."

"I think this team is different to last season's, plus it's a different tie. The first leg was in Dortmund last year, this year the return is here...

“We're a good team and we have good players. We're dangerous for any team. We're going to assert ourselves on the game and, despite our injuries, we're playing well."

The 25-year-old also confirmed that he met with Real Madrid president, Florentino Perez, before he chose to join Bayern Munich on a free transfer at the end of the season.

"Yes, it's true that he spoke to me. It was a very short conversation. That's all I can really say about that meeting with the Real Madrid president,” he added.
