Our match prediction:
There will be fireworks when Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund face each other in the German Cup final on Saturday evening. The mighty Bavarians are eager to win the DFB Pokal trophy after failing to do so last season, but the clash against the Millionaires will be anything but a walk in the park for Pep Guardiola’s men. Mats Hummels will play his last match for Borussia Dortmund before joining Bayern Munich, but, no doubt, he will give his best to help Thomas Tuchel’s team win the German Cup title. Both coaches can count on their key attackers for Saturday’s football game and there is every chance we will see goals galore at Olympiastadion Berlin. Last time out Borussia Dortmund eliminated Bayern Munich in the DFB Pokal semis and seeing that the Millionaires are desperate to save the season by winning the trophy, we predict that history is going to repeat itself.
Highligted Player (Alaba):
David Alaba started his youth career at SV Aspern and in 2002 he joined Austria Wien. Bayern Munich chiefs decided to sign him and he was promoted to the reserve team for the 2009/2010 campaign. He made 33 appearances for Bayern Munich II and he has been playing for the first team since 2010. At the age of 17 Alaba made his Champions League debut on 9 March, 2010 against Fiorentina. The Austrian international is a full back, but he is capable of playing as a left midfielder as well. He represented Austria at the 2016 European Championship finals in France, but das Team failed to impress at the showpiece tournament, suffering elimination in the group stages. David Alaba won his fifth Bundesliga title with Bayern in the 2015/2016 season and he clinched the Champions League trophy with FCB in 2013. Speaking of his individual honours, he was named Austrian Footballer of the Year in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. Alaba was born in Wien on 24 June, 1992.
Highlighted Team (Borussia Dortmund):
1909 by eighteen footballers from Dortmund. Die Schwarzgelben (The Black and Yellows) play their home games at Signal Iduna Park, but the stadium’s original name is Westfalenstadion. The capacity of Borussia’s home ground is 81,539 and it has to be noted that the stadium was opened in 1974. BVB have the highest average attendance in the world of football. Borussia Dortmund have won eight Bundesliga trophies, while clinching the German Cup title three times. However, the club’s biggest success came in 1997 when they outplayed Juventus in the Champions League final. Karl-Heinz Riedle scored a brace for BVB in the 3-1 win over Juve, with Lars Ricken finding the net in the title game as well. Borussia’s biggest rivals are Schalke 04 and the two teams square off against each other in the Revierderby.
