Bayern Munich v Borussia Dortmund: German Cup semi-final – live!

Bayern Munich v Borussia Dortmund: German Cup semi-final – live!

DFB-Pokal updates from the 7.30pm BST kick-off at the Allianz Arena Live scoreboard! Follow all the day’s goals and games as they happen Email gregg.bakowski@theguardian.com or tweet @GreggBakowski 6.39pm BST Evening. It’s Der Klassiker! That sounds meaty doesn’t it? Like it’s going to leap through your TV set and switch over the channel and then threaten you with violence if you dare try to watch anything else. Unless you’re at the match that is. But, hey, this MBM is catering for armchair football hipsters so that’s not likely. This is being billed as Jürgen Klopp’s last dance with the team that has done so much to persistently make his job as Dortmund manager ever more difficult by buying up his best players. They offered him flowers before the match – presumably in recognition of what a great scout he’s been for them over the past five years. Klopp turned them down in case you’re wondering. He knows a condescending pat on the head when he sees it coming. 6.30pm BST Gregg will be here shortly. In the meantime have a read of Raphael Honigstein’s Bundesliga blog this week: In 2014 Bayern Munich charged to the earliest Bundesliga title ever before the end of March, with seven matches to spare. They were slightly later to put their feet up in 2015, retaining the crown with four games left. “German champions on the couch. It’s a weird but beautiful feeling!” tweeted Thomas Müller, after Borussia Mönchengladbach’s 1-0 win over second-placed VfL Wolfsburg on Sunday night had confirmed the inevitable. The German international goes by the changing-room nickname of Radio Müller thanks to his frequent – but more often than not quite insightful – public announcements, and the slight regret that could be detected in his statement hints at the club’s and their supporter’s bittersweet feelings. As much as Matthias Sammer insisted that winning the league was “never normal”, it nevertheless has become the norm. Continue reading...

Want an exciting title race? Then feast your eyes on Algeria’s top division

Want an exciting title race? Then feast your eyes on Algeria’s top division

With four matches to go, 11 points separate top and bottom, seven teams have a chance of taking the title and the nation’s most successful club could be relegated Disappointed that the Premier League lacks a genuinely exciting title race? Dismayed that the situation at the head of the Bundesliga and Serie A is similar? Then feast your eyes on Algeria’s top division. With four matches of the league season to go, a mere 11 points separate the leaders from the bottom club and no fewer than seven teams can win the championship. Where nine games ago MC Alger were bottom of the table, now they are in the thick of the title race under their Portuguese coach, Artur Jorge. Top spot has been held by five different clubs and the battle to avoid finishing in the 16-team league’s three relegation places is equally intense. USM Bel Abbès, who are 14th, are three points off the comfort of eighth spot. Continue reading...
