The football headlines this week include the confirmation of the finalists for Europe’s continental football finals.



There will be a German team in this yearโ€™s Champions League final, and it is going to be Dortmund.
The romantics, myself included, were pondering the intrigue of the final returning to Wembley Stadium for an all-German showdown (Bayern Munich vs. Borussia Dortmund), reminiscent of 2013. We witnessed half of that scenario on Tuesday when Dortmund triumphed in Paris. We came tantalizingly close to completing the set on Wednesday when Bayern seemed poised for success in Madrid until a late collapse.



Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid will be playing in the UEFA Champions League final. Atalanta and Bayer Leverkusen will contest the UEFA Europa League final, while Fiorentina and Olympiacos will compete in the UEFA Conference League final.

Just as they’ve often done in the past, particularly in recent history, Real Madrid found a way to win a Champions League game. They appeared to be down and out when Alphonso Davies opened the scoring in the 68th minute, giving Bayern a 1-0 lead in the game and a 3-2 lead in the tie. It seemed the Germans were set to depart Madrid with a victory until Joselu, who had come on in the 81st minute, pounced on a spilled shot from Manuel Neuer to level the score for Real Madrid in the 88th minute. Within about three minutes, Joselu redirected another ball into the net, granting Real Madrid a 2-1 win in the first minute of added time. Although about 15 minutes of added time were played, that concluded the scoring. Real Madrid advanced to another Champions League final in pursuit of a record 15th title.

Lucas Beltran converted a penalty into a goal in the 85th minute, securing Fiorentina the decisive goal of the tie. With a 4-3 aggregate victory over Club Brugge, Fiorentina advanced to the Conference League final.

Leandro Paredes scored twice from the penalty spot as Roma overcame a two-goal deficit in Leverkusen against a Bayer Leverkusen side that doesn’t know how to lose.
