Borussia Dortmund will have the chance to secure a place in the final of the DFB Pokal when they face Holstein Kiel at the Signal Iduna Park on Saturday.
The Black and Yellows have been in great form since their elimination from the UEFA Champions League by Manchester City earlier in the month.
In the German cup, Edin Terzic’s men have won their last four games keeping three clean sheets and conceding just two goals during that time.
They defeated Borussia Mönchengladbach in the last round before advancing to the semi-final stage whereas Kiel beat Rot Weiss Essen by three goals to nil away from home to set up a clash with Dortmund.
Dortmund and Holstein Kiel last met back in February 2012 where the Black and Yellow lads thumped Kiel by four goals to nil away from home.
Saturday will be another chance for them to seek revenge but Dortmund’s quality obviously supersedes but this season has produced shocking results as well so nothing is ruled out.
