Dortmund on course for double
Borussia Dortmund are bidding to cap a marvelous season by inflicting more woe on Bayern Munich.
In beating Freiburg 4-0 in front of 80,000 ecstatic home supporters last week, Borussia Dortmund stretched their unbeaten league run to 28 games, having already captured the record two games earlier when seeing off Borussia Monchengladbach to land their eighth Bundesliga title.
Now they are gunning to inflict a fifth straight defeat over their big rivals Bayern Munich when the pair meet in the DFB-Pokal final in Berlin this weekend. Jurgen Klopp's side gained a narrow 1-0 victory at home in the latest league fixture between the pair in April and will be well aware that Bayern will have Chelsea at the back of their minds as the Champions League final is just a week away.
Defenders Mats Hummels and Marcel Schmelzer, along with young midfielder Mario Gotze, are in the Euro 2012 national squad, while the club have already issued a hands-off warning to anyone interested in prizing away the likes of Polish defender Lukasz Piszczek and star striker Robert Lewandowski, who have both been key players in the Dortmund success story this season.
