Borussia Dortmund vs. Bayern Munich, 2013 UEFA Champions League final: Lineups

Joern Pollex

Sebastian Kehl will sit for Borussia Dortmund, with Kevin Großkreutz preferred. There are no surprises in the Bayern Munich lineup.

Update: Bayern Munich win 2-1 to capture Champions League title

Bayern Munich's lineup is as expected for the Champions League final, while Borussia Dortmund included one minor surprise. In the absence of Mario Götze, many thought that Jürgen Klopp would opt to play Sebastian Kehl and three central midfielders, instead of two. He's opted to stick with his regular formation, introducing Kevin Großkreutz instead of Kehl.

Borussia Dortmund starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Roman Weidenfeller; Marcel Schmelzer, Mats Hummels, Neven Subotic, Lukasz Piszczek; Ilkay Gündogan, Sven Bender; Kevin Großkreutz, Marco Reus, Jakub Blaszczykowski; Robert Lewandowski

Bayern Munich starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Manuel Neuer; David Alaba, Dante, Jerome Boateng, Philipp Lahm; Javi Martinez, Bastian Schweinsteiger; Franck Ribery, Thomas Müller, Arjen Robben; Mario Mandžukić

Kickoff is at 2:45 p.m. ET from Wembley Stadium in London. You can catch the game on FOX in the U.S., Sky and ITV in the U.K. and Sportsnet in Canada.
