Klopp: We must be brave

Jurgen Klopp says his young Borussia Dortmund team will not freeze at Real Madrid despite the historic nature of Tuesday's Champions League semi-final.

Dortmund are 4-1 up from the first leg, and Klopp said that the return game at the Bernabeu will result in a momentous occasion regardless of the outcome.

"In football, everything is possible," the coach said. "Something historic will happen tomorrow. If we get to the final it will be historic. If we get knocked out, that will be historic too. Our main concern is that we focus."

• Mourinho: Everything is possible
• Gundogan: We're not in the final yet

When asked whether there was a danger his team could "freeze", Klopp was emphatic: "No.

"Last season we were the big opponents of Bayern Munich. They wanted to beat us in this game [the DFB-Pokal final], they wanted to beat us all season. My team was pretty cool in this moment [Dortmund won 5-2]. The only way to reach your dream is to [be] brave.

"It's no problem to lose the game because it could happen of course. It's only interesting what you invest in the game. That is what is important for us. They cannot fail. They can only give their best."

Klopp also maintained that Dortmund will not play defensively.

"Real Madrid can pose us trouble, we know that. But we also have great potential, attacking potential. We proved that in the first leg. We'll see whether we need it but it is clear we have the necessary strength.

"The important thing is balance in football, between defence and forward. When we attack, we all attack when we defend, we all defend. I don't have any problem with that. That plan is applicable to all matches.

"We know we are not a normal semi-finalist and will behave accordingly. It is great to reach the semi-final already and we will act with humility."
