With chances of the treble dashed by a European exit, Al Hain-Cole expects Die Roten to move closer to the double in an entertaining cup semi-final

After crashing out of the Champions League, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund will both be hoping to give their chances of silverware a boost when they come face-to-face in Wednesday’s DFB Pokal semi-final.

Eliminated by Real Madrid in their European quarter-final, Carlo Ancelotti’s team are 8/15 (1.53) favourites with dabblebet to bounce back by coming out on top against their domestic rivals.

Meanwhile, Die Schwarzgelben were comprehensively beaten by Monaco over two legs but can be backed at 9/2 (5.50) to book their place in the final with a high profile victory over the runaway Bundesliga leaders.

Each of the hosts’ last three fixtures have resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 7/2 (4.50) on them taking this one into extra-time after another deadlocked 90 minutes.

Although victory over Wolfsburg at the weekend could secure their fifth consecutive league title with three games to spare, spirits in the Bavarian camp are fairly low after Champions League elimination and a run of just one win in six games.

Nevertheless, considering that win was a 4-1 rout against this very opposition, they should feel fairly confident of moving one step closer to a second successive domestic double with victory here.

Having conceded twice in a 3-2 victory over Borussia Monchengladbach at the weekend to make it 13 goals against in just their last five games, Dortmund will surely struggle to put up too much resistance against their star-studded opposition attack.

However, with 35 goals to their name in the previous 14 fixtures, Thomas Tuchel's men should at least pose a threat at the other end of the pitch.

With high-scoring game therefore looking likely, odds of 19/20 (1.95) seem generous on Bayern coming out on top once again in an entertaining Klassiker that produces three goals or more.
