For the first time in three years, Bayern Munich will not be participating in the DFB Pokal Final. Borussia Dortmund and VfL Wolfsburg face each other for the opportunity to win the 2015 version of the competition. Their prize? Aside from the cup, they will earn the right to face FC Bayern in August's DFL Supercup.
BVB absolutely had the more difficult run to the final of the two clubs, but that has no affect on Saturday's game. Wolfsburg have unquestionably been the better club throughout the 2015-16 season, and they can cap off a fantastic season by lifting the trophy. Dortmund, on the other hand, struggled mightily in the first half of the season, before putting things together in the Rückrunde.
As we're all well aware at this point, this will be Jürgen Klopp's last match in charge of Borussia Dortmund. He's done incredible things at the club in his time there, but can he lead his troops to a big win against a really good Wolfsburg team? Or, will Dieter Hecking lead his Wolfsburg team to their first ever German Cup?
