2014 DFB Pokal Final, Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund: Live Discussion and Gamethread

Join us for the discussion as Bayern Munich aim for the domestic double in the DFB Pokal Final against Borussia Dortmund.

Stuart Franklin

The DFB Pokal Final kicks off in a little under one hour, and we finally have our lineups. I'll put them into the formation that I think (hope?) they'll be playing. It looks like the rumored "five man backline" could happen, but it probably isn't.

Bayern Munich

Thomas Müller

Mario Götze - Toni Kroos - Arjen Robben

Javi Martinez - Pierre Hojbjerg

Philipp Lahm - Dante - Jerome Boateng - Rafinha

Manuel Neuer

Subs: Lukas Raeder, Daniel van Buyten, Franck Ribery, Xherdan Shaqiri, Claudio Pizarro, Diego Contento

Borussia Dortmund

Robert Lewandowski

Henrikh Mkhitaryan - Marco Reus - Kevin Großkreutz

Milos Jojic - Nuri Sahin

Lukasz Piszczek - Sokratis Papastathopoulos - Mats Hummels - Marcel Schmelzer

Roman Weidenfeller

Subs: Zlatan Alomerovic, Pierre Aubameyang, Erik Durm, Manuel Friedrich, Oliver Kirch, Jonas Hofmann, Sebastian Kehl

This one is for all of the marbles folks. It hasn't been the best build-up in the world after losing Thiago Alcantara, then Bastian Schweinsteiger and Mario Mandzukic, and then David Alaba. Plus, Franck Ribery isn't healthy enough to start. Here is some pre-match reading for you: Pokal Final PreviewStatistical Match-up, and Three Tactical Keys to the match.

Also, don't forget that you have until kickoff to enter our contest to win a Bayern shirt.
