Bayern Munich may have romped to the Bundesliga title, but there have been sufficient crazy results in the Champions League so far this season to suggest the final could produce another. Nevertheless, having dispatched Barcelona with a 7-0 aggregate demolition in the semifinals, few would dispute that Bayern are the best team in the world right now, and they are clear favourites going into the game.
The Bavarians haven't lost a match since a 2-0 defeat against Arsenal in the round of 16, while Dortmund have dropped points in each of their last four games -- their longest winless streak in all competitions in almost two years. Still, they can be forgiven for allowing their minds to wander, as this is their first Champions League final since they won it in 1997.
Borussia Dortmund injuries and suspensions
Out: Mario Götze (hamstring) In doubt: Mats Hummels (ankle)
Bayern Munich injuries and suspensions
Out: Toni Kroos (groin), Holger Badstuber (knee) In doubt: None
The bad news for everyone (aside from Bayern Munich) is that Mario Götze has been declared unavailable. His hamstring problem means he won't take to the field against his future club. Now, coach Jürgen Klopp has some shifting to do in the midfield.
Marco Reus will likely move into Götze's regular position behind Robert Lewandowski, with Kevin Großkreutz coming in on the left. Alternatively, İlkay Gündoğan could be pushed into a more advanced position, with Nuri Şahin slotting into Gündoğan's regular deeper role. Their only other early injury concern is Mats Hummels, though the centre-back is expected to recover from an ankle injury in time to play.
Bayern are also without one of their most fun players. Toni Kroos picked up a season-ending injury a couple of months ago and is sidelined alongside defender Holger Badstuber. His terrible injury luck has continued, and after a second knee surgery in quick succession, he won't play again this year.
