Schmelzer dream becomes reality

Borussia Dortmund matchwinner Marcel Schmelzer admitted scoring against Real Madrid was his childhood dream, as BVB coach praises the full back's performance as "from another planet".

•  Schmelzer grabs win for Dortmund
• Piszczek pens new deal

Marcel Schmelzer, 24, scored the winner for Borussia Dortmund with a stunning volley. With 109 Bundesliga matches to his name, Schmelzer has so far scored only once. His 64th minute goal was only his second goal of his professional career.

The Magdeburg-born broke into Dortmund's first team in the 2009/2010 season, he so far has won nine caps for Germany but recently had been criticized heavily by Germany coach Joachim Low, who claimed he had to work with Schmelzer as he had no other options.

Under the eyes of Joachim Low, Schmelzer put up one of his best performances in the Dortmund jersey, and gave Dortmund their first ever win against Real Madrid.

"That's a dream," commented Schmelzer on his goal. "This is what you dream of as a kid: To score the winner against Real Madrid in a Champions League game. I am delirious with joy. It will not be easy to get any sleep tonight."

Coming out of a 2-1 derby defeat against rivals Schalke 04, Borussia not only got back to their usual 4-2-3-1 formation, but also were able to field Schmelzer and Mario Gotze, who had both missed the derby. Fellow Germany international Ilkay Gundogan sat on the bench, for the first time after picking up a back injury in the Manchester City match.

"We did not go into the match, thinking: Hopefully we don't go down 4-0," explained Schmelzer. "We knew where we might have our chances, if we play it right. And at times we did that really well and exploited Real's weak spots – if there are any."

Schmelzer revealed: "Lukas [Piszczek] and I got the definite instruction to attack on the wings."

BVB boss Jurgen Klopp praised the full back's performance. "Marcel Schmelzer's performance was from another planet tonight. He chose a good moment to score," the BVB coach said and took a dug at Germany coach Joachim Low: "Congratualtions to Germany for having such left backs"

"This feels superior, it was a sensational evening, only to be imagined in your wildest dreams," Klopp added.

Dortmund-born Kevin Grosskreutz, one of the key figures in Dortmund's play against the ball, smiled: "Schmelle has to buy drinks now. We savour the night and fully focus on Freiburg from tomorrow onwards."
