Daniel Carvajal believes that Real Madrid have more quality than Borussia Dortmund and will qualify for the Champions League final.

Bayer Leverkusen defender Daniel Carvajal has backed his former club Real Madrid to progress to the Champions League final at the expense of Borussia Dortmund.

The Spanish champions are in Germany on Wednesday for the first leg of their semi-final clash against the Bundesliga outfit.

"You have to hope Real have a bad day, but if they're on form and do what they normally do, then your chances of beating them aren't very high," he told Bundesliga.com.

"Dortmund are a great team, but I think Real have better players and are a better side overall. If Real play well and are consistent, then I think they're favourites to go through.

"I'm a Real Madrid fan and I have been all my life and I think they're a notch better than Dortmund, but in the group stages this season you could see that they could compete and they even beat them here in Germany."

Carvajal is a graduate of Madrid's youth academy and joined Bayer in 2012 after failing to break into Los Blancos' first team.
