VfL Wolfsburg beat Borussia Dortmund 3-1 at Berlin's Olympiastadion to lift the DFB Cup for the first time in their history, but there was to be no happy ending for outgoing BVB head coach Jürgen Klopp, whose seven-year spell in charge of the Yellow-Blacks ended in defeat.

Relive the action as it happened...

De Bruyne: 'What a feeling!'

The Belgium international was instrument in winning Wolfsburg's first piece of silverware since 2009 and first ever DFB Cup.


Dortmund 1-3 Wolfsburg


Enjoy the action!

"Now that we're here, we might as well go full throttle!"

That's what Jürgen Klopp had to say ahead of his final match in charge of his beloved Yellow-Blacks. On that note, we'll bid you adieu and point you in the direction of our live ticker. Viel Spaß and bye for now!

Glorious evening

The Olympiastadion is bathed in sunshine at the moment, but who will Lady Luck be shining down on this evening?

Wolfsburg have never reached the DFB Cup final before, but this is Dortmund's fifth appearance in the Endspiel. So far, die Schwarz-Gelben have won two (1988/89 vs. Werder Bremen and 2011/12 vs. FC Bayern) and lost two (2007/08 and 2013/14 vs. Bayern).

Can Dortmund register a third DFB Cup win, or will Dieter Hecking's Wolves emerge victorious in their first ever final?

Getting excited?

Plenty of time till kick-off, but already fans from both clubs are flocking out of the Olympiastadion U-Bahn station.

There's a tad more black and yellow than green and white on show at the moment, though, which is perhaps not too surprising.

Thanks, Kloppo!

Plenty of Jürgen Klopp memorabilia on display in and around Berlin city centre this afternoon. The 47-year-old takes charge of his final Borussia Dortmund match this evening. But will he be showing off the DFB Cup at Borsigplatz on Sunday? It would be the perfect end to a highly successful seven-year spell in the hot seat at the Signal Iduna Park, but Wolfsburg will be doing their utmost to spoil the party...

These two teams last met in the Bundesliga on Matchday 33, incidentally. If tonight's match is anything like the Wolves' 2-1 win over BVB at the Volkswagen Arena a fortnight ago, we can expect plenty of fireworks!

Read all about it

The official match programme for tonight's game is a glossy 90-page edition plotting the path to glory this season and recalling the winners of years gone by. The two finalists are introduced while there are exclusive interviews with the two coaches and a pull-out collectable poster.

Kitted out

As revealed earlier, Wolfsburg will be wearing their new 2015/16 strip in Berlin, and just to advertise the fact, there are a couple of vans touring the city explaining what the dress code will be at the Olympiastadion tonight, at least for the Wolf pack.

Word on the street

The Dortmund fans are quite confident too with predictions ranging from 3-0 to 5-1 among the fans, some of whom are wearing Klopp masks. "We're hoping it will be the perfect send-off," said one fan, while a similar tone was being struck by almost all the BVB followers.

Atmosphere in Berlin

According to estimates, as many as 100,000 Dortmund fans have descended on the capital. Our reporter took a walk around near the zoo, and the streets were a sea of yellow shirts. Just a handful of Wolfsburg followers around, although around 40,000 are expected.

Star backing for Wolfsburg

The Wolves won't have many more famous fans that UK popstar Robbie Williams. The former Take That singer and hugely successful solo artist is donning his Wolfsburg shirt in support of Dieter Hecking's men this evening. Will he still be smiling in a few hours time?

"Oh you lovely BVB," reads this tweet from Borussia:

Slow boat to the Olympiastadion

Top marks for ingenuity to these Dortmund fans for taking the road less travelled to get around Berlin's capital:

Wolfsburg's Malanda tribute

Here's a sneak peek at the kits that the sides will be wearing tonight. If you take a closer look at Wolfsburg's jersey, you'll see a green heart with the number 19 on the left breast. The addition is a mark of tribute to their recently deceased midfielder Junior Malanda, who wore the number. Malanda was tragically killed in a car accident in January at the age of just 20.

King Kev

Many people's unofficial choice for Bundesliga player of the year after ten goals and 20 assists, Kevin De Bruyne could have a huge role to play this evening.

Cup final day!

Today's the day then. We're just a few short hours away from discovering who the winner of the 63rd DFB Cup will be.

Mind games?

Both coaches met the media on Friday and, given the stakes, it was a rather laid-back experience. When asked whether he would reveal who his team would be, Wolfsburg coach Dieter Hecking said he would only reveal his cards if Klopp followed suit. Hecking's prediction that Mitchell Langerak will start in the Dortmund goal drew a wry smile from his counterpart.

Getting ready

Both teams had a training session on the Olympiastadion pitch on Friday to get themselves acclimatised to what they can expect come Saturday evening.

All set

Having tested the turf on Friday, Marco Reus can't wait to get started:

Tune in

The DFB Cup final, like the Bundesliga, will be broadcast all over the world.

Arrived in Berlin

The two teams have arrived in the capital. by all accounts, Dortmund's trip was a little more trialling. With plenty of turbulence on their way to Berlin, the players were happy to get their heads down for the night.
