A place in the DFB Cup final in Berlin is on the line Saturday as the Black & Yellows play host to Bundesliga 2 side Holstein Kiel at 2:30 PM ET – 3:30 PM CT – 5:30 PM PT! Despite the difference in divisions between the two, Die Störche should not be taken lightly, as they are responsible for knocking Bayern Munich out of the competition earlier this season in January. Led by former Bundesliga man, Fin Bartels, Kiel has proven to be an extremely dangerous foe in both league and cup competition thus far, winning two consecutive Pokal matches extended into penalties beating the aforementioned Bavarians and later Darmstadt.
Despite a combined 232 years of professional experience, Borussia Dortmund and Holstein Kiel have only faced off once, meeting in the quarter-final of the 2012 DFB Cup competition, which BVB went on to win as part of the famous “Double” season. The match went in Dortmund’s favor, as goals from Robert Lewandowski, Shinji Kagawa, Lucas Barrios, and Ivan Perisic proved to be the difference in the quarter-final triumph.
