Two top teams of German football, Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen will meet this Saturday in the final of the German Cup. After winning the Bundesliga again, Bayern can defend their cup title as well. Bet on German Cup final, another great game for German football fans.
The German football cup, the so-called DFB-Pokal started last August with 64 teams taking part in it. Bayern Munich won last year’s cup after defeating RB Leipzig 3-0 in the final, and they are the favorites to win again. They will meet Bayer Leverkusen in the final, who will try to win the cup for the second time in the club’s history. The match will be held in the Olympiastadion in Berlin on Saturday evening, behind closed doors just like all the other games were in the Bundesliga.
Bet on German Cup final where Bayern are the favorites
Bayern Munich won their eighth successive Bundesliga titles so the team is in great form. No wonder that online sportsbooks in Germany are predicting their win in the Cup final as well, with the odds of 1.36 at Bet365 Sportsbook. After the restart of the German league, Bayern won all of their games, including a victory over their big rival, Borussia Dortmund. They also defeated their current opponent, Bayer Leverkusen 4-2 in an away game. In the Cup Bayern met three Bundesliga sides, Hoffenheim, Schalke and in the semi-final Eintracht Frankfurt. But they managed to take all hurdles so far.
Bayern fans hope that Robert Lewandowski and his teammates can continue their great run and get the double this season. After checking previous results, we can also hope for a game with a few goals. The odds for more than 2.5 goals is only 1.36, and bookmakers expect both teams to score. At least that’s what the odds of 1.57 for the bet suggest. Beside Lewandowski, Leverkusen’s Argentine forward, Lucas Alario is the most likely to score, who has 3 goals in the tournament.
Leverkusen’s chance to win the game
Bayer Leverkusen finished in 5th place in the Bundesliga this season, missing out on a Champions League position with only two points. But now they will have a chance to make their season better and their fans happy. The club has won the Cup only once before, in 1993, but this year they had a successful run. They knocked out Aachen 4-1, then defeated Paderborn, Vfb Stuttgart and Union Berlin in the previous rounds. In the semi-final they were lucky to have 4th-tier 1.FC Saarbrucken as their opponent. Still they had to win that game as well, which they did quite easily with 3-0.
Of course, Leverkusen faces now the toughest opponent in German football. Online gambling sites in Germany are offering the odds of 7.50 at Bet365 Sportsbook for their win. But Leverkusen’s case is not hopeless. They have players like Kai Havertz, who scored 12 goals in the season. German striker Kevin Holland recovered from his injury and can be a boost to the team. While Jamaican Leon Bailey and French Moussa Diaby can be dangerous on the wings. Of course, Bayern have great defenders and a world class goalkeeper in Manuel Neuer, but hopefully we can see a thrilling game with great attacking football at the weekends. Bet on German Cup final now and make the game even more exciting to watch.
