Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp had some kind words for Real Madrid counterpart Jose Mourinho in his Press conference.

The infamously demonstrative tactician is in the Spanish capital hoping for a reprise of the 2-1 victory he masterminded over Los Blancos in Germany a fortnight ago.

“Mourinho is nice,” said Klopp. “Very friendly even. And a very good friend.”

Borussia have had problems domestically this season but are a point clear of Real in Champions League Group C and on track to cause a shock by knocking Manchester City out.

“In the Champions League we have been very effective to date. And in the Bundesliga we are favourites in every game.”

Klopp had a novel idea for increasing his team's chances at the Bernabeu.

“I hope the goals are raised!”
