Atletico revengeful, Dortmund remorseless. Each in their own terms, sellers of rapture and thrill. Two contrasting sides offering dash and dare. Atletico’s pedigree crumbled in front of Dortmund’s vociferous supporters like statues of sand. Dortmund's margin of victory against such an experienced European outfit, famed for their defensive solidity, was a major show of intent and marks them out as real contenders to go a long way into the competition.

The 4-0 win over an extremely shrewd and defensively unbreachable Atletico Madrid was just an indication of Dortmund’s attacking flair and fury.
