One of Rudiger's standout moments came during the penalty shootout against Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-finals.

The 31-year-old took the decisive spot-kick, securing Madrid's place in the semi-finals and ultimately helping the Spanish champions reach the grand finale.

Rudiger has stepped up significantly, filling in for the injured Eder Militao and David Alaba, and has featured in nearly every game for Madrid, playing 47 matches across all competitions, according to Transfermarkt.

Head coach Ancelotti will heavily rely on him as Madrid aim to extend their unbeaten streak in the Champions League finals this Saturday at Wembley.

Ahead of the highly anticipated clash against Dortmund, Rudiger has revealed a lesser-known talent that has remained under the radar.

Rudiger reveals secret talent

When asked about his secret talent, the former Chelsea defender stated that he is a good clown. He highlighted his jovial aspect, which tends to make his family, especially his children, happy.

"I'm a good clown for my children. I always try to make them happy at home. That is my great virtue," he disclosed as cited by MadridXtra.

Meanwhile, his Real Madrid teammates Aurelien Tchouameni is adept at playing the piano, Rordrygo de Goes is also good with the guitar, and Eduardo Camavinga can sing.

Rudiger tries to prank police officer

In a related publication, Sports Brief reported about Antonio Rudiger's carefree demeanour being on display just minutes before Real Madrid's La Liga match against Barcelona.

While Rudiger played a key role in the victory, his pre-game antics caught fans' attention.

The German defender attempted to prank a police officer in the tunnel as the team headed out for warm-ups.

Unfortunately for the former Chelsea star, his effort fell flat as the officer remained unfazed by his antics.
