Jude Bellingham is excited about going up against his former club Borussia Dortmund in the final of the UEFA Champions League.

Real Madrid pulled off an incredible turnaround on Wednesday to secure their place in yet another UEFA Champions League final. A late brace from Joselu helped the Spanish giants eliminate Bayern Munich 4-3 on aggregate and set up a clash against Borussia Dortmund.

The two sides will battle it out at the iconic Wembley Stadium on June 1, and Jude Bellingham is looking forward to going up against his former teammates. In an interview with DAZN after the game, the former Borussia Dortmund midfielder said that Edin Terzic's side absolutely deserve their place in the final.

“It's a dream come true. As a kid, you dream about what it would be like to play in a Champions League final - and now here we are, it's mind-blowing."

"It's mad. I can't believe it. It could only happen like this. It's my first final, in England, against Dortmund. Credit to them, they deserve their place in the final. It will be nice to see some old friends."

Jude Bellingham enjoyed his breakthrough at the top level of European football with Borussia Dortmund, having joined the club from Birmingham City at the age of 17. He made a total of 132 appearances for the club before his big-money move to Real Madrid last summer. The 20 year old has taken his game to a whole new level in Madrid, and now faces a fascinating reunion with his former club on the grandest stage in the sport.
