Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Burki has described playing against Real Madrid in the Champions League as "a dream come true", but hopes his in-form side can pick up a positive result.

The Switzerland international has established himself as Dortmund's first choice since joining the club from Freiburg in 2015, and kept a clean sheet in their group stage opener against Legia Warsaw, a 6-0 win for Thomas Tuchel's side.

While Burki is looking forward to facing 11-time European champions Madrid, he is confident the Bundesliga outfit are up to the test.

"We are full of confidence after the recent games," he told a news conference. "We have scored a lot and not allowed in many goals.

"Playing against Real Madrid in the Champions League and doing so for Borussia Dortmund, sure, that's a childhood dream come true, but playing against Madrid's big stars is no different than playing, say, Freiburg - I want to keep them from scoring!"
