Dortmund, although far from Bayern in the Bundesliga, is expected to get a ticket for the Champions League, and in addition to the top continental competition, is still alive in the Cup, where it comes from eliminating Hertha Berlin.
The Portuguese team was unable to win in the last two games of the group stage of the Champions.
