Borussia Dortmund vs Holstein Kiel
Germany – DFB Pokal
Date: Saturday, 1 May 2021
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Signal Iduna Park (Dortmund).
After getting eliminated from the Champions League this season, Borussia Dortmund will try their luck in the DFB Pokal Cup in Germany. The home team has won their last three matches in Bundesliga with a clean sheet in the recent two games.
The BVB will return home after a 0-2 win on the road against the likes of Wolfsburg last time out in their schedule. They had to defeat Monchengladbach with a 0-1 scoreline away from home to reach the semi-finals of the tournament.
In the meantime, Holstein Kiel came into the semi-finals after a successful 0-3 win on the road against the likes of RW Essen in the previous DFB clash in their schedule. They will visit on the back of a 1-1 draw on the road against Nurnberg last time out in 2. Bundesliga.
The away team is on their seventh consecutive trip across all major competitions in their overall schedule this season. With so many away games in a row, the players will be exhausted and we can expect a slow game at Signal Iduna Park for the weekend clash.
