LEV Vs BAY Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Culminating encounter this season sees two staunch sides go at loggerheads for the glistening trophy
From being in a turmoil as Coronavirus mauled the Bundesliga and marred chances of the league resuming this season to becoming the first major European league to wrap up its business. This has truly been a long and gruelling season for everyone involved with the league but one which is ultimately set to be bid a farewell with fireworks owing to the successful manner it was organised in.
After the conclusion of the Bundesliga last week, the German football season is set to play out its culminating stage today with the DFB Pokal summit clash being ushered in. This Saturday will see us being revelled in an edge of the seat thriller between Bayer Leverkusen and Bayern Munich, two sides capable of serving a stern test to each other.
Lifting a record Bundesliga Liga trophy earlier last month, Bayern Munich make an advent into the forthcoming clash as outright favourites and rightfully so. Ever since the league has returned, the side has won all of its matches, a team looking to quell its hunger for title in unabated fashion.
Where everything has clicked for Bayern Munich since football has returned to Germany, things have not been quite so kind for Bayer Leverkusen. The side has stumbled its way to the restart, stuttering in form to crash out of the top 4 after failing to win three of its last five encounters.
And while fifth place was a solid finish for them as well, the side’s form is not one which exudes confidence when they take on the Bundesliga champions today. Bayern Munich will win this one with nonchalant ease as they cajole their way yet another trophy.

LEV Vs BAY Dream11 Picks
The 1-0 win Bayer Leverkusen registered on the last day of the season was yet another testament to Lukas Hradecky’s credentials as a goal-keeper. The safeguard of the side’s goal was yet another in fine touch, doling out a wordclass performance which saw him end the season in befitting fashion.
Letting in a measly 31 goals all season long, Bayern Munich established themselves as the sternest and stringiest defence in Bundesliga. This was a side which few managed to traverse past, a responsible and well disciplined robust defensive unit responsible for giving team’s cold feet.
However, this wasn’t the only factor in us opting for a trivalent of selections from the side for the upcoming clash. In three goal and five man Alphonso Davies, the side saw the rise of a player who promises to emerge as a true stalwart over the course of the next couple of years.
Benjamin Pavard on the other end was equally electric in his attacking forays to pull up the four goals and four assists for the side this season to make this fullback pairing a must have one from the side along with CB David Alaba.
Bayern Munich’s second highest scorer in this edition of the Bundesliga with a staggering 12 goals and 11 assists, Serge Gnabry had to become the first name to make an advent into our side. We are getting him alongside Joshua Kimmich with the player being one of the consistent and dependable names for the side since the Bundesliga has returned.
Bayer Leverkusen on the other hand will see us venture in with their CDM pairing for the impending encounter. In the tenacious Charles Aranguiz and Julian, the side has two names capable of rebutting attacking soirees transpired their way and adding the much needed unstinted support to the team’s backline.
After winning the Golden Boot in the Bundesliga for yet another season with no one managing to even come close to his 34 goals and 4 assists, Robert Lewandowski will be looking to win the top scorer prize in the DFB Pokal as well. We have Thomas Muller who has the 8 goals and 21 assists move in alongside him, a one-two of names who have provided unbridled joy to the side all season long.
Elsewhere, with 10 goals and 7 assists this season, striker Kevin Volland from Bayer Leverkusen will complete our ambit for the encounter.
