Within the past three seasons Jurgen Klopp’s Borussia Dortmund has skyrocketed back to prominence since their dominance of the ‘90s. BVB achieved Europa League qualification following the 2009-10 campaign, were crowned Bundesliga champions for the 2010-11 campaign, qualified for the 2011-12 Champions League, and successfully defended their title last season. During that 2011-12 season, Dortmund also completed their first double in club history by winning the league, and beating Bayern Munich in the final of the German Cup.
While Dortmund may have come in second to Bayern in this year's Bundesliga race, the two will square off on Saturday for a Champions League trophy. Saturday’s UEFA Champions League final will mark the first all-German final in the history of the competition, and the two sides will certainly feel the weight of their nation as they line up on a hollowed Wembley Stadium pitch.
