Borussia Dortmund are the dark horses of European football.

From barely escaping bankruptcy, to defeating Bayern Munich in a major upset during last year's German Cup Final, where Dortmund won emphatically 5-2.

Now Die Borussen are leaving major world clubs drowning in their wake. 

Dortmund are currently participating in the Champions League and look in pole position to make it through to the quarter finals of the competition. 

Spearheaded by Poland International Robert Lewandowski, Dortmund sit in second place in the Bundesliga, 17 points behind league leaders Bayern Munich.

Jurgen Klopp has future stars Mario Gotze, Marko Reus, and Jakub Blaszczykowski to grace the fans of Westfalenstadion. Reus, who looks like a German Andersen Cooper, is amongst the star-studded team. He dominates and controls the game from his midfield position.

Dortmund also have German defender Mats Hummels, who is currently one of the best central defenders in Europe. Their goalkeeper and vice-captain Roman Weidenfeller is also a class act and the 32-year-old shot stopper has been in fine form this season. 

The Westfalenstadion is considered one of the best stadiums in the world, with a powerful atmosphere and support.

As this team progresses, the prices on these talented players will go up, and every club from Chelsea to Zenit St Petersburg will be at Klopp’s doorstep. 

He must hold on to these players, their chemistry is outstanding, and he can’t afford to lose them.

Dortmund have a major chance of being part of the Champions League final on May 25 at Wembley with the players at their disposal.
