Two sides with rollercoasters seasons finish the Bundelsiga facing each other, so who will have the final triumph? WilliamHill's Lee Phelps has been looking at the odds for his free soccer pick.

What a game we have in store here, with Europa League football the aim for a Borussia Dortmund team who were considered for relegation before Christmas, but perhaps more importantly one of the men who orchestrated Dortmund's rise manages his final home Dortmund game (for now at least).

Of course Werder Bremen will want to spoil the party and with both sides level on points, it's a tight match on the soccer odds and although Bremen can overtake their opponents, their goal difference is such that they can't catch Augsburg.

 

Borussia Dortmund
When Jurgen Klopp arrived at Dortmund in the late 2000s, few predicted what he has gone on to achieve. Although this season has been a real mixed bag of results and performances, the supporters still love him.

This is not Klopp's final game though. Thy have a German cup final to play yet, so I don't expect his team to be playing in celebratory mood, rather like a team in his image.

Werder Bremen
Bremen's season is similar to Dortmund's and even the possibility of qualifying for Europe looked like fantasy a few months ago. Their upturn came either side of the New Year, but in truth they haven’t maintained that form and the results have slipped as they have slid down the table.

A new manager came to the club in October and Viktor Skrypnyk has improved on last season's 12th-place finish, but their form is the epitome of inconsistency with the last six reading loss, win, draw, win, draw, loss.

 

Soccer picks
Klopp's eagerness to snatch Europa League qualification before next weekend's final means that Reus is likely to return to the starting lineup following his recent problems with injury.

I know it's easy to say Dortmund win because of the Klopp factor, but I genuinely think they will and I think they will concede so my soccer pick here is a home win and both teams to score.

Free Soccer Pick: Dortmund and both to score 2.37 (11/8) at Bet365.
