Jose will take blame for exit

REAL Madrid boss Jose Mourinho says the blame will lie with him should the Spanish side fail to overturn a 4-1 first-leg deficit against Borussia Dortmund tonight and miss the Champions League final.

Robert Lewandowski hit four goals in the Westfalenstadion last week to rock Real, with Cristiano Ronaldo netting once in reply.

Mourinho bemoaned his side’s weak defending, but retains hope of pulling off the greatest comeback in Champions League history.

“If we don’t reach the final it will be my failure,” he said. “If we play like we did in Dortmund, we’ll lose.

“But if we play with team spirit, anything’s possible.”
