German DFB Pokal
Dortmund v Wolfsburg – Over 2.5 goals & Both Teams to Score @ 1.90 (Bet365) – 3 points
Dortmund will be looking forward to a proper swansong for Klopp’s final game in charge of Dortmund, by securing a minimum of a European place for the new manager to take control of. Wolfsburg on the other hand after giving a good fight to Bayern, came 2nd in the Bundesliga and will be looking to push on for a title to crown this a truly successful season.
Dortmund and Klopp will travel to Berlin one week ahead of the Champions League final, knowing that nothing but victory in the DFB Pokal will consider a decent season for Dortmund especially if they don’t have European football next season. With a lot of talk of players moving out of the club including Gundogan, Reus, Aubamayeng, Mkhitaryan, Hummels potentially leaving the club this summer; all of them will have a point to prove in order to showcase their talents to many scouts who are expected to be in the audience. While Dortmund have been in scoring touch thanks to the likes of Aubamayeng and Reus in particular; they have conceded goals in 4 out of their last 5 games.
Wolfsburg have finished very close to Bayern along with finishing 20 points ahead of Dortmund; it showcases the exciting brand of football that they have to offer. With the likes of Bas Dost, de Bruyne, Gustavo, Caligiuri, Perisic and Schurrle; they truly have an exciting bunch of players who like to score goal that saw them net 74 goals in the league, just 8 less than Bayern during that time. Wolfsburg in particular have scored at least 2 goals in their last 5 games. Defensively also they have conceded in their last 4 games straight.
When both these sides meet, goals and both scoring tends to be the order of the day, and even it being a cup final, I expect a lot of action especially considering Dortmunds leakage of goals for most of this season. I am backing Over 2.5 goals and Both Teams to Score in the German DFB Pokal Final as this pick would have landed in 8 out of the last 9 meetings between the 2 sides.
