Borussia Dortmund will meet Bayern Munich in the final of the DFB-Pokal
Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are rivals that meet in the middle of the afternoon on Saturday for a DFB Pokal Final. Neither one of these teams have really had any problems getting to the final. Borussia Dortmund won all of its matches by multiple goals, including a 3-0 victory against Hertha Berlin in the semifinals. Bayern Munich beat Wolfsburg 3-1 in the Round of 16 making it look easy as well. They beat out Werder Bremen 2-0 in the semifinals and its been 270 minutes since Bayern gave up the 90th minute goal to Andre Schurrle of Wolfsburg. The match between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund will take place on Saturday, May 21, 2016 at 1:45 p.m. ET at Olympiastadion. The fixture will be broadcast on ESPN Deportes.
Bayern Munich did win 5-1 over Dortmund at home. When these two teams met in March, the Bayern Munich midfielder, Arjen Robben was injured and it ended up in a scoreless draw. Arjen Robben is battling an adductor injury and hasn’t played since March 5 for Bayern Munich. Robben doesn’t have anything else to play for since the Netherlands didn’t qualify for Euro 2016. Best Sports Site Blog think the Reds may give him a go even if he isn’t totally fit. The Reds will be doing much more attacking in this fixture, and forwards Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller will be hard to stop.
Dortmund has had a nice run to get here. Stuttgart, FC Augsburg, SC Paderborn and Chemnitzer FC were the other clubs that fell to the wayside thanks to the men in yellow and black. Midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan might end up winning the Golden Shoe of the tournament with his five goals to lead the way, but we have to give the edge to the Reds and think Dortmund will loose the title in this match.

Swansea City AFC clash with Liverpool FC in Premier League
Swansea City plays at home this Sunday afternoon against Liverpool. Swansea City has been good at home this year, but is an underdog on its home turf. Liverpool is in seventh place and is still being lined as if it’s one of the best teams in the league. The Swans need three points to ensure safety for next season in the Premier League. Liverpool will need three in order to have any sort of shot of claiming a spot in European soccer next season. The matchup between Swansea City and Liverpool will take place on Sunday, May 1, 2016 at 7:00 a.m. ET at Liberty Stadium. The soccer game will be broadcast on NBC Sports Network.
Liverpool did pick up big wins against Bournemouth and Everton in recent weeks, and a 2-2 draw against Newcastle. Liverpool has a lot of injuries this year. Forward Christian Benteke is likely out for the rest of the year from an injury he suffered playing for the Belgian national team. Central misfielder Emre Can is out for this campaign, also. Forward Danny Ings and midfielder Jordan Henderson are both out with injuries, also.
Swansea really hasn’t played inspired ball of late. The Swans have no major injuries but has been beaten by Newcastle and Sunderland in consecutive matches by a combined score of 7-0. The Swans are going through new ownership and a new coaching staff set to come in for next year. The team is going to be rebuilt so there isn’t a lot for these players to play for. Best Sports Site Blog is concerned that both of these teams will lack of motivation. Liverpool has its sights set on greater goals, and Swansea is more or less just playing this season out. This matchup could look like a organized friendly fixture more than a competitive duel in the Premier League. We’re not sold that the Reds will be able to finish this game off against the home field Swansea City. This match between the Reds and Swans could end up being a draw.
