  2. Preview: The 2015/16 DFB Pokal Semi-Finals

    Last season, the DFB Pokal was easily the most surprising event in German football. In fact, it might have been one of the most surprising events in all of European soccer. Bayern Munich were in the midst of yet another dominant season in the Bundesliga and were widely expected to win yet another German Cup. Had the Bavarians won the DFB Pokal, it would have been their third trophy in a row in the event, and their 18th overall.

    Borussia Dortmund, meanwhile, were in the midst of one of their worst seasons ever-a campaign that saw the venerated club drop from second place in the Bundesliga to seventh, and one that pushed the widely respected Jurgen Klopp to resign his post as BVB's manager. In 2013/14, Dortmund had lost to Bayern Munich in the DFB Pokal, falling behind 0-2 in extra time. When the two clubs were drawn against one another for a semi-final match, the writing seemed to be on the wall that Dortmund's last shot at redemption in the 2014/15 season was about to be dashed.

    But then something unexpected happened. Borussia Dortmund fought so hard that they pushed Bayern Munich into extra time and then into a penalty shootout. And as the usually sharp-footed Bayern squad missed four penalty kicks in a row, the BVB side needed just two on-target shots to eliminate the defending champions from the German Cup.

    Ultimately, Klopp was denied one last trophy when his Black and Yellows lost to Wolfsburg in the final. But the win against Bayern Munich was definitely the peak of Dortmund's 2014/15 campaign and set the football club up well for a new era under the management of Thomas Tuchel.

    The 2015/16 DFB Pokal: The Current State of Things

    If Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund meet again for a DFB Pokal rematch this season, it won't happen until the championship match. The two soccer teams are drawn on opposite sides of the bracket for this year's tournament, with

  3. Predictions for the DFB Pokal Quarterfinal Matches 2016

    At this point, Bayern Munich have won the DFB Pokal so many times that it seems almost foolish not to bet on the German heavyweights to win the tournament in 2016. The Bavarians have won this event 17 times and finished second thrice. The next most successful football club in the history of the event is Werder Bremen, with six wins and 10 finals appearances. Borussia Dortmund, meanwhile, Bayern's toughest opponents in the Bundesliga, have only won the German Cup title three times.

    Still, surprises do happen. Last year, Bayern Munich barely made it through the quarterfinals, having to beat Bayer Leverkusen in a penalty shootout after a scoreless 120-minute match. The German champions subsequently lost another penalty shootout to Dortmund in the semifinals, missing out on a chance to win a third consecutive title in the DFB Pokal. Wolfsburg went on to beat Dortmund in the finals and win the cup.

    Bayern Munich's Semifinal Guarantee

    Wolfsburg lost to Bayern Munich all the way back in the round of 32, which means that someone different will be taking home the title this year. Right now, the Bavarians have to be considered the frontrunners: the football club is pushing to win the treble this season, as a means of closing out Pep Guardiola's tenure in epic style.

    Bayern also have the easiest draw in the quarterfinals. They'll be facing VfL Bochum, a second-tier team that finished 11th in 2. Bundesliga last season. Suffice to say that the Bavarians are at least safe until the semifinals.

    In fact, there is a good chance that the semifinals of the 2015/16 DFB Pokal will be comprised of the current top four clubs in the German Bundesliga: Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, Hertha Berlin, and Bayer Leverkusen.

  4. Germany's Top Four Clubs Do Battle in Bundesliga 2015 Week 15

    It was an exciting weekend for football fans in Germany, as the country's top four soccer clubs did battle in the Bundesliga 2015 week 15. Reigning league champions and perpetual frontrunners Bayern Munich traveled for an away fixture against Borussia Monchengladbach while 2014 2015 runners-up VfL Wolfsburg faced off against this season's revitalized Borussia Dortmund squad.

    Bayern Munich Pick Up a Loss

    The most fascinating thing about the weekend was that it brought Bayern Munich's incredible undefeated run to a close. The Bavarians have been on fire this season, winning 13 of their first 14 league matches and drawing the other. Their only losses since August were Super Cup defeat against Wolfsburg, a friendly fixture defeat at Jahn Regensburg, and a Champions League loss to Arsenal.

    Donning the Bayern Munich away shirt 2015/16 for their December 5th match against Borussia Monchengladbach, though, the Bavarians finally picked up a Bundesliga loss. Despite a scoreless first half and a dominant possession Bayern Munich Home Shirt 2015 - 2016performance from Bayern Munich, the home team found their groove early in the first half, scoring three goals in the space of 15 minutes. Considering the fact that Bayern rarely concede more than one goal in a match, the three-point deficit was a shock for both fans and players alike. The visitors did eventually get on the board, with an 81-minute goal from Franck Ribery, but it was too little, too late to forge Borussia Monchengladbach Home Shirt 2015 - 2016

  5. Bayern Munich Tightens Hold on Bundesliga Title Race 2015/16

    Wolfsburg scored a massive victory, Borussia Dortmund snapped their seven-game winning streak, and Bayern Munich continued to avoid defeats in the 13th week of the Bundesliga title race 2015/16. The Bavarians are widening their lead over the rest of the table, with Dortmund's loss allowing the defending league champions to move from a five-point advantage to an eight-point lead. With 12 wins and only one draw on their record this season,
    Munich already seem like a foregone conclusion to clinch yet another German football championship next spring.

    Bayern were in-form in their away fixture against Schalke 04, winning 3-1 to improve both their point total and their goal difference. Even with their star striker, Robert Lewandowski, going scoreless, the Bavarians still racked up three goals, including a last-minute contribution from Thomas Muller. Anyone waiting for the wearers of the Bayern Munich home jersey 2015/16 to show signs of weakness is going to keep waiting, in other words.

    Disappointment for Dortmund

    Still, even though Bayern Munich are virtually always dominant in the Bundesliga, Borussia Dortmund have looked like worthy contenders and rivals for much of the 2015 2016 campaign. Coming off a disappointing season and the resulting resignation of manager Jurgen Klopp, Dortmund's Black and Yellows have surprised fans and pundits alike with their speed, hunger, and consistency.

    Other than a loss against Bayern in early October, Dortmund hadn't dropped another Bundesliga fixture all season. The football club were also enjoying a seven-game winning streak heading into Bundesliga match day 13, having won their last four league matches, as well as additional competitive soccer fixtures in the Europa League and the DFB Pokal.

    The Black and Yellows showed some serious weakness over
    the weekend, though, losing 1-3 in their away match against Hamburger SV. Hamburger,

  6. Sevilla Stake Their Claim in Champions League 2015

    When the groups were drawn for this year's UEFA Champions League on August 27th, Group D looked Juventus Third Shirt 2015 - 2016like one of the most "open and shut" of the entire tournament. Between Juventus (last season's runners-up) and Manchester City (so clearly dominating the English Premier League this season), the group's top two teams were easy to identify. What were the chances of either of these top-ranking football clubs bowing out of the UCL before the knockouts? Never mind the fact that Sevilla were coming off two straight Europa League titles, or that Borussia Monchengladbach had just played one of their best seasons ever in the German Bundesliga. In the eyes of most soccer fans and experts alike, Champions League 2015 - 2016 Group D belonged to the Zebras and the Sky Blues.

    Champions League Jerseys

    Sevilla's Surprise

    After week one of the Champions League group stage, though, nothing looks quite so clear anymore.

    Of the four football clubs competing in Group D this year, it wasn't Juventus or Manchester City that scored a big win on September 15th; it was Sevilla. The reigning Europa League title-holders tore through Borussia Monchengladbach to earn a 3-0 home victory-a perfect start to a long shot UCL campaign.

    One thing that might be working in Sevilla's favor here is that they aren't facing a ton of pressure. If they finish in the top two in Group D, they'll progress to the round of 16, which would be an accomplishment. If they finish third, they'll transfer over to the Europa League, where they'll be able to try their hands at winning a third straight title. It's more

  7. Bayern and Borussia Back on Top after Opening Week of 2015 Season

    In 2013 2014, the German Bundesliga season ended with Bayern Munich as the champions, Borussia Dortmund as the runners-up, and Schalke 04 in third place. Bayer Leverkusen and VfL Wolfsburg rounded out the top five. Now, in the wake of the opening week of 2015 - 2016 Bundesliga play, it's as if we've found a time warp back to the 2013 2014 season, for how similar today's standings look like the final rankings from that season.

    Indeed, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, and Schalke 04 are the opening week's top three performing football clubs. Bayer Leverkusen, meanwhile, are in fifth, while VfL Wolfsburg are just outside the top five, at sixth place. Talk about déjà vu.

    Two Returns to the Top

    For Bayern Munich, returning to the top of the Bundesliga table is more or less a foregone conclusion at this point. The soccer club has won 25 German championship titles since inception, including six of the past 10 Bundesliga trophies. This year, players will don the Bayern Munich home jersey 2015 2016 to go for a fourth title in a row.

    So far, the odds of the Bavarians winning the German Bundesliga competition once more seem pretty sterling. The football club had one of the best season starts of any team in Europe, crushing Hamburger SV 5-0 in a thrilling home match. The game, which saw two goals from Thomas Muller and one apiece from Robert Lewandowski, Medhi Benata, and summer signing Douglas Costa, gave Bayern three points in the standings and an untouchable +5 in goal difference.

    Borussia Dortmund Home Shirt 2015 - 2016For Borussia Dortmund, meanwhile, a return to (or near) the top of the table in 2015 2016 is anything but a foregone conclusion. For the most part, Dortmund's past 10 years have been stellar, featuring two Bu
