Hummels confident Dortmund can be crowned European champions

Mats Hummels is confident that Borussia Dortmund can be crowned European champions after the German side progressed to the Champions League final.

A disciplined defensive performance over two legs saw Dortmund progress past Paris Saint-Germain in the semi-finals, winning 2-0 on aggregate against the French champions.


Hummels scored the only goal of the second leg win in Paris on Tuesday night, and Dortmund will now take on Real Madrid or Bayern Munich at Wembley on June 1.

Despite a disappointing domestic campaign, Dortmund have impressed in Europe to reach the Champions League final for just the third time.

Hummels, who formed part of the team that lost the 2013 final to Bayern Munich at Wembley, said the confidence gained from their surprise run to the decider can help Dortmund ‘prevail’ next month.

“Since the second match of the group stage, we’ve believed we can prevail – and I don’t see why we shouldn’t win at Wembley,” the veteran centre-back said.

“We were able to take so much pace out of the game and atmosphere out of the stadium. That was our recipe for success.


“I’ve scored far too few Champions League goals in my career, just five. Now is a good time to add to that number.”
