Kick-off: 1900, 25/05/2019
Stadium: Olympiastadion, Berlin
Bayern Munich will be determined to make up for last year’s German Cup final loss to Eintracht Frankfurt when facing RB Leipzig in this season’s decider.
FC Hollywood had come out on top 18 times in 21 previous appearances in the end-of-season showcase and we are expecting normal service to be resumed on Saturday.
Punters can get 27/20 for the favourites to be ahead at half-time and full-time and that is our opening RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich prediction.
A Look At RB Leipzig’s Betting Odds
RB Leipzig will take heart from this month’s Bundesliga goalless draw with Bayern in front of their own fans, as they prepare for a first appearance in the DFB Pokal final.
Ralf Rangnick rested a number of players for last week’s 2-1 loss at Werder Bremen, so that result is best forgotten and this is a well-drilled, technically efficient outfit.
Hoffenheim, Augsburg and Wolfsburg feature among their victims in this competition, while they had the best defensive record in Germany’s top flight this term.
At the other end of the pitch, Timo Werner is always a threat going forward and is reportedly a transfer target for Liverpool this summer.
However, we just feel the underdogs face a daunting task in trying to lift a maiden trophy, so 15/2 for them to lose 2-1 catches the eye from the RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich odds.
A Look At Bayern Munich’s Betting Odds
Bayern wrapped up a seventh straight Bundesliga title in spectacular fashion when thrashing Eintracht Frankfurt 5-1.
Outgoing club legends Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben put the icing on the cake by coming off the bench to bag late goals at Allianz Arena and are likely to figure again here.
Head coach Niko Kovac has a great record in this competition, winning 16 of his 17 domestic knockout matches after leading Frankfurt to the last two finals.
He has had to overcome some tricky obstacles this term, with Heidenheim only edged out 5-4 in between 3-2 triumphs at Hertha Berlin and Werder Bremen.
However, Bayern will be more focused now we have reached the business end of proceedings and we expect them to rise to the occasion.
Thomas Muller has netted in the last couple of rounds to make it 30 goals in 49 DFB Pokal appearances, so 11/2 for him to break the deadlock is added to our RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich betting tips.
