Dante warns of fast and furious Dortmund

The Brazil international is full of respect for Jurgen Klopp’s men ahead of Saturday’s showpiece and believes they deserve their place in the Champions League final

Bayern Munich defender Dante has warned his team-mates not to underestimate Borussia Dortmund ahead of Saturday’s Champions League final.

The Bundesliga champions have won two of their four games versus Dortmund so far this season, while drawing the other two matches, but Dante has stressed that Jurgen Klopp’s men represent a formidable opponent due to the speed at which they operate.

“They’re an excellent team and they’re very combative, no matter whether they’re in possession or hitting you on the counter, when they can be very fast and dangerous,” Dante was quoted as saying on the official Fifa website.

“Dortmund really deserve to have got this far.

“I don’t think it matters who you’re up against because it’s a Champions League final. Obviously neutrals would see it as more of a European final if Real Madrid or Barcelona were in it, but for the players it doesn’t make any difference.”

Saturday’s encounter at Wembley, the first all-German Champions League final, is scheduled to kick off at 20:45CET.
