Dortmund face third place Hertha Berlin away in the semifinals of the DFB Pokal. The game will be played on either the 19th or the 20th of April, with the winner facing the winner of Bayern v Werder Bremen in the DFB Pokalfinale in May. The last time we traveled to Berlin, Dortmund and Hertha played to an uneventful 0-0 draw. Hertha are enjoying one of their best seasons ever, currently sitting in third place behind Bayern and Dortmund.

This wasn't the best of draws for Dortmund, but it's unlikely Hertha will as strong in April as they are now. While Hertha have shown no signs of slowing down, it is likely we'll see a more attacking Dortmund team in April, considering the fact that they have to win to move on. This match is still two months away, but the DFB Pokal is our best chance at a trophy this season, and Hertha is a team we can beat, so personally, I'm excited for this one.
