Competition : Germany – DFB-POKA
Time / Date : 21:45h / 17 April 2018
Venue : BayArena
After last week’s 4-1 thumping of top four hopefuls Eintracht Frankfurt, Bayer Leverkusen head into this semi-final with a comfortable five-point cushion in fourth place in the Bundesliga, so turn their hopes to a possible cup final for the first time since 2009.
Munich will came here with rested players while they manage to make seven changes in last games in Bundesliga,they can dream for treble and this semi final is important for them.
Bayer 04 Leverkusen
Sven Bender (Distortion of the ankle), Joel Pohjanpalo (Ankle injury), Wendell (Double Torn Ligament)
Arturo Vidal (Tear in a joint capsule), Manuel Neuer(Metatarsal fracture), Kingsley Coman (Syndesmotic ligament tear)
The Bavarians are unbeaten in the last five games against Leverkusen with 4 wins and a draw. The two Bundesliga fixtures of the current campaign ended in 3-1 wins for the team from Munich.
Even though Leverkusen are in reasonable shape, it’s fair to say that Bayern Munich are the much better side and will simply want this more for coach Jupp Heynckes.
Bavarians will win here.
