Bundesliga—Saturday, May 4, 2013, at 9:30 a.m. ET
We finish our predictions this weekend with the most fascinating fixture of them all—a preview of the UEFA Champions League final that is set to take place on May 25.
Dortmund and Bayern have both been exceptional this season, and with neither able to change their positioning in the Bundesliga here, it will be interesting to see how the respective managers approach this one. Will they play anybody from their starting side, trying to gain an insight into their opponents?
You'd have to think probably not. Both sides know each other very well and will likely play a number of their younger guys—leaving it difficult to predict this weekend.
I think the home side will get the job done here, ending Bayern's incredible away run this season. Dortmund have an imposing home ground and fans, and they have a number of great young players in their under-19 team who are capable of getting the job done here if Jurgen Klopp goes that way.
If players are rested, I think Dortmund win this one. If not, I think the points will be shared, and we'll be left wanting more from both teams. And fortunately for us, we'll get that in just a few weeks' time.
Prediction: Borussia Dortmund 3, Bayern Munich 1
