Check-In to Freiburg v Borussia Dortmund

DORTMUND, Oct 23 (Reuters) – Borussia Dortmund midfielder Sven Bender has had enough of playing against Real Madrid on his video console and cannot wait to face the genuine article in their Champions League Group D clash on Wednesday.

“I have stopped playing Real Madrid (on the games console) in the past week,” the 23-year-old Germany international told reporters on Tuesday. “It will be a real highlight to have them in the stadium and not on playstation.”

Makes sense.

Perhaps this spell of abstaining from playing as the La Liga giants helped the German midfielder to focus for the big clash, which Borussia Dortmund con 2-1, and will surely lead to similar spells of avoiding playing as Man City and Ajax prior to the remaining Champions League clashes.

If only everything in life was this simple.
