Dortmund advance to the final of the DFB Pokal!By: Clarissa | March 24th, 2012
Dortmund will face Bayern in the final of this season’s DFB Pokal, i.e. the German FA Cup.
The match took place on Tuesday, and was a hard- fought affair. Dortmund managed a 120 minute winner, when a shot by Gündogan went off the post, of the back of the Fürth goalkeeper and in! Since Bayern won the second semi- final against Gladbach, we’ll be facing them in the final, which will take place in the Olympiastadion in Berlin. It should be a great occassion, and a good chance for Dortmund to do the double this season! Should add that the end was marred by Kevin Großkreutz going off at Gerald Asamoah and Mike Büskens, both of whom have Schalke connections. Großkreutz was later accused of having used racist language against Asamoah by another Fürth player, but since Asamoah himself has said that he wont make any comments, it looks like nothing will come off this. I just hope that Kevin gets his emotions better in check, it was a game after a second division club after all!
In other news, there are some big transfer stories going on, most notably surrounding Barrios. There is a story that he might go to China, though nothing has been confirmed yet. Still, it seems that whatever happens, Barrios is as good as gone. Also, there have been reports that Dortmund might be looking to add another Japanese player to their roster. Still only media reports though.
Next up in the Bundesliga we’ll go up against Cologne. Should be an interesting game!
