Mats Hummels dreaming of Wembley return after Borussia Dortmund edge PSG in Champions League semi-final first leg


Mat Hummels says he has unfinished business at Wembley as Borussia Dortmund took one step closer to the Champions League final by beating Paris Saint-Germain.

Niclas Fullkrug’s effort handed BVB a slender advantage in their Champions League semi-final clash, with the Bundesliga side now one game away from their first final appearance in the competition since 2013, which was also at Wembley.

Reaching the showpiece would have particular significance for 35-year-old Hummels, who is one of two players still at the club who played in that final defeat to Bayern Munich 11 years ago.

Speaking to TNT Sports, Player of the Match Hummels said: “Of course [there is unfinished business]. It was the only Champions League final of my career.

“It would be so great to have a second one. Especially at this stage of my career, I did not expect to get [another] chance this big.

“It’s a big thing to come to Wembley again, it would be a dream!”

Dortmund have not been beaten in 11 Champions League home games but Hummels knows the job is only half done as they head to the Parc des Princes next Tuesday.

The defender added: “We know how hard it is for opponents to beat us here. If you come to Dortmund you know how hard it is.

“The problem is we still have to go to Paris, we know how hard it is to go there.
“I don’t think I’ve ever won there. But we can look forward to a great game on Tuesday.

“It is 90 minutes to the final and we know we want to get there.

“We put our heart onto the pitch to achieve this and we are one little step closer but, we are not over the finish line yet.”
