Bayer Leverkusen vs Bayern Munich Prediction & Betting tips
The last national title for the 2019/2020 season will be awarded on Saturday evening in the Berlin Olympic Stadium. In the DFB Cup final, which incidentally takes place as late as it has not been since 1974, Bayern and Leverkusen face off. According to the odds of the best bookmakers, the chances of successfully defending the Munich title are very good. Last year, the record champions won 3-0 against RB Leipzig in a one-sided final.
The men from the Säbener Straße are already waving the 13th double in the club’s history on Saturday evening. The FCB could fix its 20th title in the DFB Cup alone. The fact that the Flick-Elf made a strong impression after the forced break and has not lost in the entire calendar year 2020 speaks for the favorite.
The Werkself therefore remains only the role of the underdog, although Peter Bosz’s team also managed to convince over long distances in the second half of the season, but ultimately had to settle for fifth place in the Bundesliga. Despite the 2: 4 defeat in the most recent direct duel to date a few weeks ago, Kai Havertz and Co. hope for the first Bayer title since 1993.
Before the final against Bayern against Leverkusen everything speaks for a forecast for the star of the south, if it weren’t for the interesting statistics that in the cup history all Dutch coaches who were in the final also won the title. Louis van Gaal most recently achieved this with the Munich team in 2010. Nevertheless, it seems most plausible to align the tip in favor of the German industry leader between Bavaria and Leverkusen.
Bayer Leverkusen :
The record Bayern want to crown their almost perfect second half on Saturday. With 16 wins and a draw from 17 Bundesliga games, the almost fixed entry into the final tournament of the Champions League and reaching the final in the DFB Cup, the calendar year 2020 could hardly have gone better for the record champions.
The Munich team have not lost in 24 competitive games. In a total of 31 games as FCB coach, Hansi Flick collected an impressive 2.74 points on average (28-1-2) and formed a collective that in the current constitution is even described by many as the best team in Europe. No wonder that before the DFB Cup final between Bayern and Leverkusen, the odds are clearly in favor of the club, which can already win its 20th title in this competition.
If the Munich team builds on the achievements of the past weeks and months (ten wins in ten matches after the compulsory break), there must be no two opinions about who will win the trophy on Saturday evening around 10:00 p.m., if there is no extra time Olympic stadium will receive. The favorite record champion won eight of the last ten finals, including last year 3-0 against RB Leipzig.
Also this weekend, a prediction of a handicap success by Lewandowski and Co. could pay off between Bayern and Leverkusen, because in eight of the last eleven Bundesliga games the star ensemble won by at least two goals. In terms of personnel, Hansi Flick doesn’t have to make a lot of changes either. With the exception of Martinez and Tolisso, all players are available. Süle could also appear in the squad for the first time after his cruciate ligament rupture. The same applies to Thiago’s will to emigrate.
It is a strange feeling for Bayer Leverkusen to be in the final for a major title. For the first time in eleven years, the Werkself have the chance to add silverware to their own trophy collection on Saturday. In 2009, the Rhinelander lost the last final to date with 0: 1 against Werder Bremen. The only success in the DFB Cup dates from 1993, when Hertha II was barely defeated.
Admittedly, this year’s title game is not a particularly good star either. The team of coach Peter Bosz only won two of their last five games in the Bundesliga, giving them the promising starting position in the fight for the Champions League. As fifth in the final table (all rankings can be found in our betting base table service), Bayer will have to make do with the Europa League in 2020/21, unless they succeed in the big tournament in August in the form of the Europa League Title win.
Although the Werkself have beaten FC Bayern in two of their recent three competitive games, the way the Bosz eleven want to play football is a favorite for the favorites. Since the Dutch coach primarily seeks playful solutions and, even under pressure, sees a long ball only as an emergency solution, ball losses in the game structure are almost inevitable. A similar course of the game as in 2: 4 about a month ago, when Bayer was 1: 3 behind at half-time despite 1: 0 lead, does not seem unrealistic.
To make matters worse, the fifth place had to cope with bad news a few hours before the kick-off because the Brazilian youngster Paulinho contracted a cruciate ligament and will of course fail. Otherwise, the outsider can draw on the full. Kai Havertz, courted by Bayern, will also be part of the game – unlike in the Bundesliga duel.
