09:59 AM ET 05.23 | Tensions will be high on Saturday for UEFA Champions League Final between German clubs Borussia Dortmand and Bayern Munich. Unfortunately for Dortmond, they will be without their star player Mario Gotze for the game. Gotze was injured during the team's semifinal victory over Real Madrid and the team has decided his hamstring isn't ready to go. In an interesting twist to the story, this will be the final game that Gotze suits up for Die Schwarzgelben. He previously announced that he would be switching sides to Bayern Munich at the end of the season.

I wonder how much extra Bayern had to pay to keep him out of the final. Sounds like collusion and ting.
