Every season has an underdog which makes the top teams rethink their strategy. This year Saarbrucken came in with the same image in the Cup. They are on a great league season and they followed up the same in the DFP Pokal too.
The journey to the semis was not easy for them. In the opening round, they overcame the challenge from Regensburg. Dusseldorf was their opponents in the quarter-final, a game which they won 2-1.
Leverkusen recently suffered a recent setback in the league against Bayern Munich. They are fifth in the league and a long way back in the title race. The team which wins this one will face the winner fo Bayern Munich vs Eintracht Frankfurt.

Saarbrucken vs Bayer Leverkusen: Prediction
Since this match is played at the home of Saarbrucken we may in for a close game. The only head to head the hosts won was at this ground. Leverkusen is also not to be taken lightly. But they are fresh from a defeat in the league against Bayern. The fact that they lost after taking a 2-0 lead early in the game says a lot about their defense. They cannot handle pressure and Cup game is full of that.
Both teams have been part of cup games with more than 3.5 goals this season. The opening two matches of Saarbrucken saw a similar scoreline. So did some of the games that Leverkusen played. They have a great scoring streak going in the league as well.
I hope we may see goals on both sides of the pitch. The hosts have scored continuously at home in over 10 matches in both cup and league. So I am backing both teams to score with more than 3.5 goals in total.
