Bayer Leverkusen vs Bayern Munich
Germany – DFB Pokal
Date: Saturday, 4 July 2020
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
The Bavarians are not only the defending champions of this competition, but they just completed their eighth straight title in the Bundesliga too. For sure, Hans-Dieter Flick’s men will try to complete another domestic double with a win this Saturday.
For the Company’s Eleven, it seems as if their days of despair are not over. Not only did they fail to qualify for the Champions League, and that too by the tiniest of margins, but they have to take on such a mammoth rival in the final of this cup competition.
By all means, count on Bayern Munich to produce a victory this weekend at the Olympiastadion.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Bayern Munich: Prediction
The Company’s Eleven recorded a 0-3 win on the road in the semis of the Pokal, against Saarbrucken. Considering that the hosts were from the fourth division, it was a straight forward victory for the latter.
Meanwhile, the Bundesliga champions registered a 2-1 win in their semis against Frankfurt. After scoring an early goal, the Eagles did give them a scare with a late equalizer. However, Robert Lewandowski rose to the occasion by slotting in the winner five minutes later.
As things stand, the Bavarians are the favorites. They are trying to make it two times in a row in this domestic cup, after having made it eight on the trot in the league. On the other hand, their opposite number had not even managed to finish in the top-four of the table.
Going on, Flick’s men had recorded 33 of the preceding 42 h2h wins, and they have been the best team in the country for the past several decades. They are also going for the continental treble, and considering the shortened version of the UCL, this year seems like a great opportunity.
On top of that, Lewandowski has an opportunity to go after the elusive Ballon d’Or, and the doing the double will certainly improve his chances. The chances are very high that Bayern Munich will post a convincing win this weekend.
