FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) — Borussia Dortmund coach Juergen Klopp says his team won’t be swept away by Bayern Munich in the Champions League Final like Juventus and Barcelona were in the previous rounds.

Klopp says he expects a close final May 25 in Wembley. Bayern beat Juventus 4-0 on aggregate and Barcelona 7-0.

Klopp tells Kicker magazine “we know how good we are.”

Klopp said that while Bayern beat Juventus and Barcelona so bad “that they could hardly find the way out of the stadium, that is not possible with us.”

Two Bundesliga teams are contesting the Champions League final for the first time. Bayern is seeking a unique treble. After winning the Bundesliga title from Dortmund, it can also clinch the German Cup on June 1.
