Edin Terzic, Borussia Dortmund boss, declared steadfastly: "The absolute final boss is waiting. We're breaking everything down to this one game."

"In a game, anything is possible. If anyone has shown that, it's us. It's time for this series (of Real Madrid), eight games, eight wins in finals, to end."

Real Madrid's manager, Carlo Ancelotti, said: "I've felt the greatest emotions in this competition my greatest positive emotions as well as my greatest negative emotions."

"I can't forget the [1984] final we lost against Liverpool when I was at Roma, nor the other final we lost against Liverpool in 2005 [as coach of Milan]. But there are also many positive memories. Passion certainly prevails, and that's what keeps me going."
