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. Lucien Favre is the man who has re-ignited Dortmund’s dormant aspirations of European and domestic glory. The 4-0 win over an extremely shrewd and defensively unbreachable Atletico Madrid was just an indication of Dortmund’s attacking flair and fury. However, a trip to Madrid’s state of art stadium is going to be a tricky affair as Atletico Madrid will undoubtedly be out for a bit of redemption, and this time will have the full support of the Wanda Metropolitano at their backs. With a showdown against Bayern Munich looming, the priority will be to keep BVB’s key players healthy and rested. Dortmund have already booked a trip to the round of 16 hence rotation to keep their star performers fresh before Bayern clash is predictable. The catch here for Favre and his backroom staff will be to strike a balance between using their trusted match winners and rotating the squad. Jadon Sancho, the latest Football sensation is on a roll himself. He is scoring spectacular goals, providing near perfect assists and winning matches for Dortmund as if it were a cakewalk. Everything that this kid is touching is turning into gold.
