Borussia Dortmund end DFB-Pokal hoodoo with win over Eintracht Frankfurt

Thomas Tuchel will lead his side into the showpiece against Eintracht Frankfurt in Berlin but the coach might have more on his mind than simply ending Dortmund's recent hoodoo in the competition.

Victory provided a positive finish to a hard season for Dortmund, who finished third in the Bundesliga, and suffered trauma when their team bus was damaged by an explosion before a Champions League quarter-final match against Monaco on 11 April.

However, despite having a contract until 2020, this could be Aubameyang's final appearance having said he will decide his future after talks with Dortmund's bosses.

"I am spent, I must admit, after watching that", said Tuchel. If this really is Auba's last game for Dortmund, he's signed off with the same swagger we always came to expect from him.

Watch as Borussia Dortmund celebrate with the DFB Cup after downing Eintracht Frankurt in the Pokal final.

But Eintracht started to pressurise the Dortmund defence. His back Gabonese took the 67 th minute Christian Politic earned a penalty, Aubameyang is easily implemented judicial sentence.


Ante Rabic swept in a 29th-minute equaliser, and Haris Seferovic then hit the post for Frankfurt. Marco Fabian won the ball in midfield, played Mijat Gacinovic through, and Gacinovic squared the ball for Rebic to beat Roman Buerki in the Dortmund goal.

Reus' injury proved too much for the winger, who - along with Marcel Schmelzer - made way for Pulisic and Gonzalo Castro at the interval.

The 27-year-old has evolved into one of the finest strikers in the world during his time in Germany, scoring 30 league goals this season, beating Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski to the Golden Boot.

Aubameyang, the Bundesliga top scorer with 31, chipped the ball straight down the middle as Frankfurt goalkeeper Lukas Hradecky dived, giving Dortmund the title at the fourth attempt after losing the previous three finals.

His flying bicycle kick was only cleared off the line by Frankfurt's Mexico worldwide Marco Fabian on 64 minutes.
