Early in the first half, Dortmund were cruising. They shot 8 shots with 3 of them being on target while Real had zero on target. But after the first Half they came back strongly and buried Dorrtmund to claim their 15TH UCL TITLE...Simply crazy

So the question is why teams like Arsenal, Bayern, Manchester City, PSG etc stumble greatly on big stage. While team like Real Madrid always prosper despite performing awfully bad at times and even with mediocre squad? :unsure:

Why don't Real Madrid bottle it like others???

Money. Just steal other clubs top players particularly those of Hispanic ethnicity. Tap their players then keep bidding for them until the selling club accepts.

But bro why this money doesn't work for PSG or Manchester City as City may have won multiple PLs but only one UCL title under pep

Man City and PSG have just started this art where as Real have been doing it for decades.

Hmm... Let's see then but even Barcelona in Messi era couldn't chase them. I still remember Messi speech to bring trophy to camp nou and then bottling it against Liverpool in semi final. Was a fantastic encounter.

bit harsh, vinicius, Rodrigo, valverde, bellingham, were all bought in their early teens, if anything there great at identifying young talent and then moulding them to fit into their team.

in terms of net spend over the past 5 years Madrid are below Nottingham forest, their gross expenditure is still in the top 10 but they get a lot more value from their spending.

I am talking historically more then recently. Even if certain players were bought in their early teens it was because they outbid other clubs offering stupid money. Now they have signed Mbappe for "free"....his salary will probably be £ 10 million a week or something!:(

It's coz of their mentality.
Real Madrid do attain an elite mentality while other teams choke even when are doing their best. One mistake and they're already buried, no Plan-B.

Yep the good thing about them is that they don't waste their chances. TBH dortmund was the better team other but they still defeated them. A thing that you could hardly expect from overrated Premier League teams.

Expected bitterness from a Liverpool fan. Liverpool under Klopp have been Madrid’s whipping boys.

At least under JK we made three ECL finals winning one unlike Arsenal who can only dream of doing that :D :D We lost twice too a brilliant team who have now won it 15 times, there is no shame in that at all. Remind me, how many ECL finals have Arsenal reached let alone won during the great Arteta's time? :cry:. Real have indeed historically spent stupid money more then any other club.

You conveniently left out the 2-5 humiliation at Anfield in the R16 last year.

Liverpool under Klopp have been petrified of Real Madrid. Absolute whipping boys.

If Arteta’s Arsenal play Real Madrid next season, they might not get past them but they will not surrender so meekly at the Emirates the way Liverpool did at Anfield.

And how many times have we rubbed your noses on the ground over the years. It was well known until a few years that Liverpool were Arsenal's bogey team that you had nightmares about us. We defeated Real Madrid 4-0 in the CL and also defeated them in the 1981 European final. When did the losers of Arsenal ever achieve such heights? We smashed you in the CL many years back eliminating you from the tournament in the process. Real's B side would hammer Arsenal with their eyes closed every season. Remember how we came back at home versus Barcelona after being 3-0 in the first leg? Only Anfield can create such magical nights not also ran clubs like Arsenal.
 
Only once have Arsenal reached the ECL final. They got owned by Barcelona that time:p
 
When Arsenal fans are being humiliated they start gong on about what they'd do next season!:rolleyes:
 
By the way I think it was in 2009 when we defeated Real Madrid 0-1 at their place thanks to a Yossi Benayoun effort. We have had our victories against them as well.

I guessed it was in Torres time when LFC actually defeated Real Madrid quite handsomely. Torres was a great player
