Bayer Leverkusen and Bayern Munich come face-to-face in a massive DFB Pokal final at the Olympiastadion this weekend.
Leverkusen have endured mixed fortunes in their last ten competitive fixtures (W6, D1, L3), with seven of those nine results (win/loss) producing a full-time margin of two goals or more. Also, half (five) of those ten matches have witnessed over 3.5 goals and both teams on the scoresheet. A lack of defensive quality has seen Bayer concede at least once in eight of their last 11 games in all competitions, with 60% (nine) of the 15 goals they shipped across those encounters arriving in the second half of play. The clean-sheet theme seems to be off the table, given that ‘Die Werkself’ conceded at least a goal in seven of their last competitive H2Hs, allowing over 2.5 goals on five of those occasions.
In the meantime, Bayern come into this clash on a run of 16 victories in all competitions, ten of which yielded a final margin of two goals or more. What’s more, Hansi Flick’s rock-solid defense kept a clean sheet nine times during that 16-game sequence, restricting their opponents to precisely one goal per game in four of the other seven. Particularly inspired before the break, the ‘Bavarians’ have netted 68.75% (11) of their last 16 goals scored in the first half of play, which has been the case with 77.78% of the goals scored in their past four H2Hs (7/9). Quick out of the blocks, the perennial Bundesliga champions have found the net at least once inside the opening half an hour in six of their last seven competitive fixtures.
