Bayern Munich Vs Borussia Dortmund DFB Pokal Live Online Commentary
Following Bayern UEFA Champions League exit by Real Madrid, the Munich team was complacent in their return to Bundesliga football against Mainz 05 last weekend. The Bavarians’ lack of concentration in the begining of the match alongside the penalty decision against them were more than enough for the guests to earn themselves a point in a 2-2 stalemate at the Allianz Arena. However, Carlo Ancelloti’s tutored team still have a comfortable lead atop the Bundesliga, however, so all efforts should be in getting them to their regular spot in the final of the DFB Pokal (German Cup) – Bayern Munich have featured in four of the last five DFB Pokal finals.
On the other hand, Borussia Dortmund have definitely had a tough couple of weeks. Two straight Bundesliga victories (3-2 win over Borussia M’gladbach away from home and a comfortable 3-1 victory at home to Eintracht Frankfurt) have been “consolations” between a sandwich of three defeats (a 4-1 hammering with the hands of Bayern Munich and two UEFA Champions League quarter finals losses against AS Monaco) not to forget a shocking attack on the Borussia team bus. Dortmund’s consequential knock-out from the Champions League came as no surprise – Tomas Tuchel’s team were always going to have a hard time recovering following this disruption – so the BVB are also likely to concentrate on their only remaining chance of getting any silverware this season.
