Gundogan: I want to face Bayern Munich in Champions League final

The midfielder has set his sights on an all-German final, but has insisted that BVB will have to focus on their quarter-final tie versus Malaga first

Borussia Dortmund star Ilkay Gundogan is dreaming of a Champions League final against Bayern Munich, but realises the Bundesliga champions still have a long way to go.

BVB were paired with Malaga in the draw for the quarter-finals after seeing off Shakhtar Donetsk in the first knockout stage, and Gundogan is hopeful of going all the way in European club football’s elite competition.

“We have the quarter-final against Malaga coming up first. It will be hard enough to overcome that hurdle,” Gundogan told TZ.

“But of course, I hope to lock horns with Bayern Munich in the final.”

Dortmund are currently trailing the Bavarians by 20 points in the Bundesliga, but Gundogan refuses to congratulate Bayern on a title success just yet.

He added: “We will only congratulate Bayern with the title when we can’t catch them any more mathematically. Not before then.”

Bayern need only two more wins in their remaining eight games to secure Bundesliga glory.
