In every final Bayern Munich is involved, it makes sense that the Bavarians are the favourites. This is the case in 2020 German Cup final against Bayer Leverkusen
After the regular season has ended in the Bundesliga, the final of the DFB Cup will be played on Saturday, July 4th, 2020. In this, Bayer 04 Leverkusen and FC Bayern Munich face each other. Bayern are record winners of the national cup and want to reign the 20th title. On the other side, the only national title in Bayer Leverkusen’s history was the cup in 1992/1993. Subsequently, Leverkusen narrowly missed some title chances. The club would like to finally remove the vice image. However, FC Bayern Munich are clearly favorites. The venue of the final is the Olympic Stadium in Berlin and here is our Bayer Leverkusen – Bayern tip
Bayer 04 Leverkusen is playing a good season 2019/2020 and is still represented in 2 competitions after the end of the league. In the Europa League, the team of coach Peter Bosz is close to the quarter-finals after the «16» knockout round first win against Glasgow Rangers (3-1) and, of course, in the DFB Cup final against Bayern. The only downside in this season is the missed qualification for the Champions League. This was decided by the 0-2 defeat on matchday 33 against Hertha BSC.
In theory, however, the club from the Rhineland still has the chance to participate in the Champions League in the coming season. But Bayer Leverkusen would have to win the Europa League. Initially, however, the focus is on the national cup final. On the way to the final, the “Werkself” were drawn to relatively easy opponents.In addition to the two Bundesliga promoters Union Berlin and Paderborn, Bayer Leverkusen had to compete against Alemannia Aachen, Stuttgart and Saarbrücken .
In the course of the DFB Cup so far, Bayer 04 Leverkusen have demonstrated the team’s strong offensive and have already scored 13 goals. The “Werkself” scored 61 times in the Bundesliga, making it one of the most dangerous attacking teams in the league. After the restart, the team of coach Bosz has a record of 6 wins, a draw and 3 losses. A month ago, Bayer Leverkusen met Bayern Munich in the league. At that time they suffered a 2-4 loss.
If you look a little further into the past, it becomes clear that the club from the Rhineland was not always inferior to Bayern Munich. Bayer 04 Leverkusen won two of the last three matches.In the last 7 direct duels, Leverkusen has always scored at least one goal. In the 2008/2009 season the club was last in the final of the cup. The final against Werder Bremen was then lost. 11 years later, the second cup victory in club history should finally be made perfect.
FC Bayern Munich faces the 20th cup win in club history
After Bayern Munich received the 8th championship title in a row, last weekend the German record champions made the 20th cup success in club history perfect on Saturday evening. Bayern owe this successful season to coach Hansi Flick, among others. Since the former assistant coach of the German national team took over FC Bayern Munich, the club has been back on the road to success. Under Flick, Bayern Munich has a sensational average of 2.74 points per game. In 31 cross-competition games he has a record of 28 wins, a draw and only 2 losses.
In addition to winning the championship and reaching the final in the DFB Cup, FC Bayern Munich is also in the round of “16” of the Champions League. The first leg against Chelsea was won 3-0 and the club can hope for the quarter-finals in Lisbon. The current focus is on the cup final against Leverkusen. There have often been spectacular games against the “Werkself” in the past. In the last 7 matches with Leverkusen, there have always been at least 3 goals. 5 of these 7 games were also won. On the way to the final, FC Bayern Munich successfully defeated Energie Cottbus, VfL Bochum, TSG Hoffenheim,FC Schalke 04 and against Eintracht Frankfurt. Except against Schalke, the FCB always had to concede at least one goal.
Bayerns’ 100 goals of the season

Robert Lewandowski secured the league’s top scorer with 34 goals. Since the Polish straiker has been active in the Bundesliga, he is scoring at least 30 goals in every season. In the DFB Cup this season he has 4 goals. He wants to expand these statistics on Saturday.
After the restart, the team of coach Hansi Flick was in excellent shape and won all 10 games. In 5 of the 10 games, FCB had to concede at least one goal. The long-term injured central defender Niklas Süle has been back in team training for a few days and could return to the squad of the record champions on Saturday. A starting eleven can be excluded due to lack of game practice.
