FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) -- After reaching the German Cup final, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund return to Bundesliga business hoping to recover from extra midweek shifts.

Both had to play extra time in their German Cup semifinals and Bayern also needed the extra burden of a penalty shootout before setting up the dream final in Berlin on May 12 between the top two German teams.

Dortmund will have more time to recover before it visits Cologne on Sunday. Bayern played a day later but will go into action on Saturday at home against Hannover.
