Real Madrid have to beat Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday in the last game of the Champions League group stage to finish first. Both teams drew in Germany and this would be a huge clash among two of the best teams in Europe.
Los Blancos have to very concentrated to stop some of the key players of the side trained by Tuchel. Especially, everybody will have a look to Patrick-Emerick Aubameyang, Borussia Dortmund star. However, there is another player that might be interesting for Real Madrid supporters. This is Julian Weigl, the stopper.
Aubameyang has said several times that he would be very happy to join Real Madrid because he’s a supporter. Part of his family come from Ávila, a little town 100 kilometres far from the Spanish capital and his grandfather was ‘madridista’, so the striker has never hidden his dream of playing for Real Madrid. Los Blancos have also shown interest in the forward, as he is one of the best strikers in Europe.
Apart from Aubameyang, Real Madrid supporters should keep an eye on Julian Weigl. According to the Spanish newspaper OKDiario, Los Blancos are interested in this midfielder. Weigl is only 21 years old and he’s enjoying his second season with Borussia Dortmund after his transfer from Munchen 1860 for €5M.
Weigl has been an important part of the team since his arrival and he played 30 games last season in Bundesliga, whereas this year he’s played 12 games in the German league. As a stopper, Weigl is very important for Tuchel’s formation and he even scored a beautiful goal in Portugal against Sporting in this Champions League.
Borussia Dortmund have a wonderful squad with Marco Reus, Andre Schurrle or the former Barcelona player Marc Bartra. However, we should put the eye in Patrick-Emerick Aubameyang and Weigl, perhaps two future Real Madrid players.
