In a night that both Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid fans will never forget (for comepletely opposite reasons), one name will be stand out above all others- Robert Lewandowski.
The reigning Bundesliga champions' centre-forward netted all of his club's goals, as Dortmund demolished Ronaldo & co 4 - 1. It completed a German double over Spain, after Bayern Munich beat Barcelona 4 - 0 on Tuesday- and announced German football as the new masters of European football.
It looks set to be an all German final, unless Barcelona and Real are able to pull off a miracle.
Dortmund, just like their counterparts Bayern Munich, completely dominated their Spanish oponents last night. Stand out performances from Gotze and Reus helped the German's win., but it was Lewandowski that grabbed the headlines.
The rumours about Lewandowski's departure from the club this Summer have been circulating for quite a while. If reports are to believed, he will be a free transfer as his current contract expires at the end of this Summer. It looks like that could be the deal of the century, if anyone were to sign him up.
Although Lewandowki's name will go down in the history books, the real story here is the shift in dominance from the Spanish clubs to Germany.
And not even the most ardent Spanish football advocate can deny there has been a shift...
