Both Dortmund and Wolfsburg have endured impressive end of season run-ins and can finish off with silverware success in the DFB-Pokal final
In what will be Jurgen Klopp’s final game in charge of Borussia Dortmund, the Black and Yellows will contest Bundesliga high-flyers Wolfsburg for the coveted DFB-Pokal crown at the Olympiastadion Berlin.
German Dortmund boss Klopp announced his imminent departure from the club months ago and, after leading them to Bundesliga success in 2011 and 2012, along with two German Cup coups in 2013 and 2014, he will be hoping for a fitting farewell against Wolfsburg.
The recently struggling German outfit had flirted with relegation early in the campaign, but bounced back and are a best priced 13/10 with bet365 to triumph in their latest final appearance, while Wolfsburg are 11/5 with Boylesports to snatch victory after a successful season.
Dortmund overcome the DFB holders and earlier crowned Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich on penalties in their semi-final clash to reach this stage, and Klopp will be aiming to go out on a high in this crucial German encounter.
“What I want is to drive one more time around Borsig square [in a victory parade],” stated Klopp.
A contract extension for defender Neven Subotic may have boosted club morale in recent weeks, following a previous contract extension of star forward Marco Reus earlier this calendar year (9/5 with Sky Bet to score anytime), but Klopp will want one more trophy to celebrate before he departs.
“We still have something left to do. We have a big final and we will maybe see each other in the [Dortmund] city centre on Sunday,” Klopp told fans.
“To crown this amazing time with such a moment would only be fair.”
Wolfsburg are capable of spoiling the party, though, having finished second only to Munich this season, and they possess plenty of firepower in order to topple Klopp’s men.
However, Dortmund’s resurgent form this term should see them happily close the door on Klopp’s success-laden career as manager, with in-form frontman Pierre-Emerick Aubamayang a 7/4 chance with Sky Bet to strike anytime in 90 minutes, while prolific playmaker Kevin De Bruyne is 8/1 with Coral to open proceedings.
