Bayer Leverkusen vs Bayern Munich Preview

Bayer Leverkusen vs Bayern Munich

Competition – DFB Pokal (Semi-final)

Stadium – BayArena

Date: 17th April 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Bayer Leverkusen come into this DFB Pokal semifinal game with hopes of reaching their first final since 2009 and they would be looking to take their good league form into this game.

They currently have a 4 points cushion on fourth position and that would see them play in the Champions League football next season if they can keep their position.

They are coming up against a strong Bayern side that are looking for yet another treble after clinching the Bundesliga title last week.

Leverkusen can call on Lucas Alario here as his suspension only applies to the Bundesliga and they would hope his partnership with the in-form Kevin Volland who netted a hattrick against Eintracht Frankfurt will fire them to victory here.

Bayer Leverkusen lost both of their league meetings with Bayern Munich this season.

Bayern Munich rested most of their biggest stars in their weekend 5-1 win over Borussia Monchengladbach.

Sandro Wagner helped himself to a brace but he should give way for Robert Lewandoski here.

James Rodriguez scored a stunner of a free kick last time these teams met and he should be in the starting line up here.

However, Arturo Vidal pulled up in training after suffering a reoccurrence of a knee injury and he will not be involved in this game.
