What a shame it will be if this season's Borussia Dortmund team are broken up in the summer.

After their amazing comeback against Malaga, reminiscent of Manchester United's 1999 Champions League final one, Dortmund will now enter the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Dortmund deserve a lot of credit for their success - rather than buy their team in the way their rivals for the cup have, Dortmund have built a team full of young German talent.

Granted they have their three Polish stars, but none of these were mega signings similar to those that Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Barcelona can and have made. 

20-year-old Mario Gotze, Marco Reus, 23, Sven Bender, 23, Ilkay Gundogan, 22, and Mats Hummels, 24, are at the heart of a team built by manager Jurgen Klopp.

Many of their big names have attracted interest round Europe, with Manchester United reportedly looking at their stars - this comes after the Red Devils have already taken Shinji Kagawa away from the German side. 

Although Felipe Santana's winning goal in their 3-2 comeback win over Malaga was clearly offside - it can be seen as justice, after Malaga's second goal by substitute Eliseu was also offside.

This season Dortmund's league form has been disappointing but there have been rumours that they would always be concentrating their efforts on a tilt at the Champions League.

Dortmund side play an exciting brand of football and it will be disappointing to see it ripped apart.  Of course manager Klopp himself is a wanted man and may also be off to pastures new.

But for the moment it would be nice to see Klopp and his young team triumph over the expensive world eleven's assembled by their rivals.
