What a game to finish off the domestic season in Germany. Bayern Munich, the Champions face Borussia Dortmund the second placed team and the last team to win the league. This rivalry has really grown in the last couple of years and with Munich again raiding Borussia Dortmund this summer by taking Robert Lewandowski it will be interesting to see how this game plays out. Pep Guardiola's Bayern Munich side have had a lacklustre end to the season , wrapping the league up in March was counterproductive with Munich going off the boil and struggling to maintain focus. Outplayed, out thought and out fought in the Champions League semi final, Bayern were embarressed at home losing 4-0. But with Ribery, Robben, Schweinsteiger, Muller, Kroos, Goetze and Mandzukich there is no reason for Munich not to win this cup final such is the depth of talent in their squad.
For Borussia Dortmund's Robert Lewandowski this game will be a chance to leave his current employers with good memories and remind his future employers of why they are paying him to come be their star man. Jurgen Klopp will hope Lewandowski, Reus Mkhilatarian can get at Munich just as they did in the league in April (winning 3-0 in Munich). Borussia Dortmund had a rough season and although they gave Real Madrid a scare in the Quarter Final of the Champions League I think overall most Dortmund fans would consider this season a disappointment but a win in the Cup final would be a sweet way to end it.
Another really good game to end a season in Germany and one that should be full of goals as we have two very attacking teams. I'm taking both teams to score here as I think this one should be a wide open attacking game. Overall Bayern Munich are favourites and rightly so given their squad but to me the value is on Borussia Dortmund and I will be taken the underdogs with a small bet as well.
