The current situations for the two finalists of UEFA Champions League 2013 could not be any more different: While FC Bayern dominate the competition to secure the half-season championship with only three goals against, Dortmund are at the brink after nine losses already this season and a devastating position 16 in chart.

Next opponent under the week for Dortmund will be Wolfsburg while Bayern will face Freiburg.
