Bayern in the final of the German Cup for the third time

Bayern in the final of the German Cup for the third time

Bayern Munich is on the verge of winning the Bundesliga this season. This time Robert Lewandowski’s winning goal also confirmed the Bavarians in the final of the German Cup.

Bayern beat Eintracht Frankfurt 2-1 on Wednesday night (June 10). With this, they reached the final of the German Cup for the third time in a row. Bayern beat Leipzig last season to win the title.

However, this time the German giants took revenge on the way to the final. Frankfurt beat Bayern 3-1 in the 2017/18 season.

This time Hans Flick’s disciples, who had been dominating from the start of the match, went ahead in the 14th minute. Croatian midfielder Ivan Parisic has put Bayern ahead with a great header this season.

However, in the second half, the champions of 2018 paid the price. Da Costa equalized for Frankfurt in the 69th minute. However, Bayern did not have to wait long for the winning goal. In the 74th minute, Leva wrapped the ball in the opponent’s net from the pass of Joshua Kimich. In the 2019/20 season, the Polish striker scored 45 goals in just 39 matches in all competitions in Bayern’s jersey.

Lever’s goal was initially ruled offside. The video assistant referee later gifted the goal to Bayern.

The final of the German Cup will be held on July 4, at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin. Their opponent in the final is Bayer Leverkusen. Leverkusen confirmed in the final that the country’s fourth division team had beaten Saarbrucken 3-0.

On the other hand, Bayern will win the Bundesliga title for the eighth time in a row if they win just two more matches. They are unbeaten in 20 of the last 21 matches.
