Guardiola bows out after DFB-Pokal final

Pep Guardiola’s last match in charge of Bayern Munich will see the German champions take on Borussia Dortmund in the DFB-Pokal final on Saturday.
Bayern ended up winning the Bundesliga for a fourth straight season, but Thomas Tuchel’s Dortmund kept them honest in the title race until the penultimate week of the league campaign.
Germany’s top two now meet in Berlin as both look to seize upon the last chance to secure silverware in 2015-16.
With Bayern having crashed out of the Champions League at the semi-final stage for a third straight season, the Pokal crown would give them a double to send Guardiola out on a high.
Meanwhile, Dortmund need to win if they are to avoid finishing the campaign without a major trophy after former boss Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool knocked them out of the Europa League quarter-finals.
Dortmund defeated Guardiola’s side in last season’s Pokal semi-finals, but have lost the last two finals against Bayern in 2014 and Wolfsburg in 2015.
That is a run star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – who has scored 39 goals in all competitions – is desperate to bring to an end, with 100,000 Dortmund fans expected to travel to the capital.
