Road to Olympiastadion 2020

Bayern Munich have the chance to secure their third DFB Pokal in a row - and if they win this, they also complete their second consecutive domestic treble. However, their fierce rivals Borussia Dortmund are also finalists, and will stop at nothing to stand in their way.

Can David Beckham's Invincibles overcome Die Borussen?

However, before the Final, we first take a look at how Bayern Munich reached their third consecutive DFB Pokal Final.

First Round



Coincidentally, Bayern Munich played Union Berlin as well in the First Round last season, and barely scraped a 1-0 win. This time it was different as Die Bayern dominated throughout and eventually won 3-1, with a brace from Ademilson and a Jesus Blanco goal to round the match off.

Second Round



The Second Round was more troublesome for Bayern as they faced Hannover 96. Die Roten fought valiantly and defended well, but Bayern eventually ran out 2-1 winners with a brace from main man Ademilson.

Third Round



The Third Round proved easier as Bayern went up against Kaiserslautern, and crushed them easily with a hat trick from Ademilson, again. Jesus Blanco scored a solitary goal to round off the smashing, and Bayern were on their way to the Quarter Finals.

Quarter Final



Bayern clashed with VfL Bochum and old boy Pavle Cecaric in this round. Although regarded as strong favorites, a mere score of only 2-1 was managed, with Bochum striking first and Ademilson equalizing much later to take the game to extra time. It was left up to Bahri Tuna to play the hero and score the winning goal in the 119th minute.

Semi Final



Will Hughes bagged a brace and it seems Bayern were cruising past HSV to the Final, but Die Rothosen hit back and equalized soon enough. Penalty shootouts followed and it seemed Bayern would not be able to reach the Final as easy as they would have liked, but thanks to goalkeeper Seyhmus Seckin, they did. The Turkish youngster scored the vital eighth penalty as well as saving Hamburger's eighth penalty to win Bayern a place in the Final, as well as reaching an all-new heroic status within the club's fan base.

Final



A DFB Pokal Final that can only be described as juicy. If any club can stand up to Bayern Munich it'll be the mighty Borussia Dortmund, and this could prove to be a very interesting match. Can the yellow army stop Bayern from winning their 18th DFB Pokal?

We can only wait and find out.
Quite the penalty shootout from your keeper in the SF! Good luck in the final!

DFB Pokal Final 2020



Jeremy Pauker: Good evening everyone, and welcome to Eurosport's live coverage of today's DFB Pokal Final. I'm Jeremy Pauker.

Paddy da Costa: I'm Paddy da Costa.

Neal Hasan: And the name's Neal Hasan, and all of us here today will bring you the DFB Pokal Final... in words!

Jeremy Pauker: Bayern have had an incredible record in this tournament since David Beckham took over, and now have the chance to win their third consecutive DFB Pokal, but Dortmund stands in the way.

Paddy da Costa: The last time Bayern Munich played Borussia Dortmund in the league, the match ended 1-1. Die Borussen definitely have a chance here.

Jeremy Pauker: The line-ups are in, let's take a look.

Dortmund: Ochoa; Rodolfo, Heo, Subotic, Schmelzer; Leitner, Nordtveit, Todoric, Maly; Lewandowski, Jehanno

Bayern: Neuer; Borges, Lenti, Xulu, Diez; Chamberlain, Kroos, Sylla, Hughes; Blanco, Ademilson


Neal Hasan: A very strong line-up from both sides. Unfortunately Ryan Garland is injured today so Rodrigo Borges takes his place at right-back. It'll be a very good experience for the Portuguese youngster, who has been breaking into the first-team of late.

Paddy da Costa: Fedele Lenti and Siyanda Xulu also start in central defense with Eneko Diez being pushed out to left-back. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Abdoulaye Sylla, Will Hughes and captain Toni Kroos make up the midfield. Thiago Alcantara will be out for today, also through injury.

Jeremy Pauker: Ryan Garland and Thiago Alcantara are both very important players for Bayern Munich. It'll be a big loss, but at least they have enough quality to cover them both.

Neal Hasan: Agreed - Abdoulaye Sylla is fucking epic!

Paddy da Costa: No coarse language, please, Neal.

Neal Hasan: I'll say whatever the fuck I want, mate!

Paddy da Costa: .... And Ademilson and Jesus Blanco lead the line for Bayern Munich. Ademilson will be a force to be reckoned with today, he's just such a good player, and if Dortmund want to look out for an opposition player today, it will be him.

Jeremy Pauker: Dortmund will be coming out in a similar formation to Bayern. Rodolfo is a surprise start for Dortmund, but besides him, the other three make up a pretty sturdy defense. Heo Jae-Koo and Neven Subotic is considered to be the best defensive partnership in the Bundesliga, and Marcel Schmelzer is going to be a huge problem for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Neal Hasan: Dortmund have an awesome midfield too. Moritz Leitner on the right and Peter Maly on the left, while Havard Nordtveit and Ante Todoric will contest Toni Kroos and Abdoulaye Sylla in the middle of the park.

Paddy da Costa: Ademilson might be the best striker in the Bundesliga, but Dortmund probably have the best striking pairing in the league, with Robert Lewandowski and Erwan Jehanno up front - a partnership that will hit Bayern's defenders hard. Jehanno has scored 20 goals this season, and only Ademilson has more.

Neal Hasan: Do you hear that, guys?

Jeremy Pauker: Hear what?

Neal Hasan: The match whistle! The match is starting!

Paddy da Costa: ... Right, on to the match.



1' - Woohoo! Kick off! Let's go, Bayern!

1' - Neal, you're supposed to be a neutral commentator, not watching this to support your team! Ahem. We kick off here at the Olympiastadion, with Bayern Munich kicking off. Let's see how this half goes.

10' BAYERN GOAL - A goal just 10 minutes in! Bayern Munich are off to a good start! Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain dances past defenders, making the Dortmund men all look like Sunday league footballers, and then shoots it into the bottom left to foil Guillermo Ochoa! Bayern 1-0 up!

21' - Heo Jae-Koo gets forward and tries a fierce shot, but he is denied by Manuel Neuer, who palms the ball to Rodrigo Borges.

45' - And it's half-time very quickly here at Olympiastadion, with little action besides Chamberlain's strike that separates the two teams. As it is, Bayern Munich will be claiming their third consecutive and 18th DFB Pokal.

HT: Dortmund 0-1 Bayern Munich

45' - We return for the second half of the DFB Pokal, here at the Olympiastadion. Will the second half be more lively? The Dortmund players certainly seem more pumped than before...

52' BAYERN GOAL - GET IN! Will Hughes on the left and he sprays it to Ademilson, who jinks past Heo Jae-Koo and hits a blinder past Ochoa! What a strike, what a goal!

56' - Todoric hits the ball up to Robert Lewandowski who gets a shot in, but it only hits the post before Fedele Lenti clears it.

58' - Kevin Grosskreutz comes on for Peter Maly.

61' - Toni Kroos tries a shot from long-range, quite a shot, but nevertheless, the ball goes into the safe hands of Ochoa.

62' DORTMUND GOAL - Erwan Jehanno plays it beautifully to Kevin Grosskreutz in the box for the German midfielder to execute a perfect shot into the net, just minutes after his introduction into the game! 2-1! Dortmund are still in this!

63' - Bayern make a double change with Mattheus coming on for the tiring Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Philipp Lahm also makes his appearance with Rodrigo Borges going off. A surprising decision from David Beckham, with the former Bayern captain having not made an appearance nearly all season.

68' - This is fucking unbelievable! Erwan Jehanno goes down with a DIVE after Eneko Diez BRUSHES against him! A fucking dive I tell ya! It's a penalty! No way!

68' - I think you should calm down Neal.

68 DORTMUND GOAL - And Ante Todoric fools Manuel Neuer to hit the penalty into the top left hand corner of the net. Fucking cunt.

68' - It's all square now, a superb fightback from Dortmund.

72' - Johannes Brunner is coming on for Jesus Blanco, Bayern's last change of the night.

75' - REALLY, REALLY CLOSE for Dortmund there, but the scoreline is kept 2-2 thanks to Manuel Neuer! Getting the ball from a corner, Robert Lewandowski strikes, but Neuer punches it away... to Ante Todoric, who strikes again, but Neuer pulls off a magnificent save, yet again! A quality performance from the goalie. It's left up to Siyanda Xulu to clear the ball away.

76' - Nassim Ben Khalifa comes on for Dortmund, with Schmelzer going off to the bench.

80' - Toni Kroos swings in a corner, AND ADEMILSON'S HEADER RATTLES THE CROSSBAR! Will Hughes tries a follow-up, but his shot goes sailing over the net.

83' - Agonizingly close for Dortmund again as Erwan Jehanno's strike hits the goal post.

85' BAYERN GOAL - AND GUESS WHO'S GOT THE WINNER! PHILIPP FUCKING LAHM gets forward and loses his marker easily, being on the receiving end of an Ademilson pass, and he strikes it past Ochoa! In the 85th minute! Philipp fucking Lahm! What a legend!

85' - There is no better man to score the winning goal for Bayern Munich. Philipp Lahm. What a legend.

87' - And it seems Bayern aren't satisfied yet. Will Hughes is on the ball and he provides a decent strike, but Ochoa punches the ball out for a corner.

90' DORTMUND GOAL - What the bloody fuck! Ante Todoric swings in a free kick, and Nassim Ben Khalifa is on the end of it to strike it hard past Manuel Neuer!

90' - After a thrilling match, it's 3-3, meaning the match will go to extra time!

FT: Dortmund 3-3 Bayern Munich

90' - The players are back out the tunnel, looking weary, but ready to fight for their trophy.

105' - Half-time in extra-time, and it doesn't look as if the match is going anywhere. Is this going to penalties?

HT in ET: Dortmund 3-3 Bayern Munich

105' - And they are back out on the pitch. Bayern and Dortmund both have 15 minutes to keep the match from going to penalty shootouts...

120' - And they cannot do it. Penalties it is!

FT in ET: Dortmund 3-3 Bayern Munich



- Bayern Munich's Ademilson starts off the shootouts, and he easily places his ball in the bottom left of the net.

- Erwan Jehanno also scores his penalty, lifting the score to 1-1.

- Almost looks as if it'll be a miss, but thankfully, Will Hughes' shot is slightly missed by Ochoa, and it goes into the net.

- Equalizing hero Nassim Ben Khalifa executes a well-taken penalty.

- Abdoulaye Sylla does not disappoint, striking his ball into the top right.

- Ante Todoric, who has been immense for Dortmund, keeps up his perfect performance with a perfect penalty.

- Philipp Lahm is unable to build on his previous goal and his penalty is saved by Ochoa! Is this the end for Bayern?

- Heo Jae-Koo comes to Bayern's rescue with a poorly-taken shot. Manuel Neuer saves the ball with his two hands easily.

- Mattheus capitalizes on the chance presented to his team and scores his penalty.

- Moritz Leitner scores to keep Dortmund in the shootout.

- Club captain Toni Kroos strikes his penalty cleanly.

- And again, Dortmund are kept in it as Kevin Grosskreutz scores his penalty. This is absolutely nail-biting!

- Is this going to end?! Johannes Brunner scores his penalty easily as well!

- AND HE'S MISSED IT! NEVEN SUBOTIC HAS MISSED IT! I REPEAT, NEVEN SUBOTIC HAS MISSED IT! BAYERN MUNICH'S FANS AND PLAYERS ALIKE GO INTO CELEBRATION! THEY HAVE WON THEIR THIRD CONSECUTIVE DFB POKAL! WHAT A GAME, WHAT A THRILLER, AND WHAT A RESULT!


Paddy da Costa: An absolutely nerve-wracking match!

Jeremy Pauker: Indeed! An unfortunate result for Dortmund, who've played very well. What are your thoughts on the match, Paddy?

Paddy da Costa: It was amazing, easily the best cup final I've seen in ages. It's been Bayern Munich winning it easily the previous two years so it's good to see them really getting a challenge this time from Borussia Dortmund.

Neal Hasan: Forza Bayern!

Jeremy Pauker: What the hell are you on about, Neal? Piss off back to Italy!

Neal Hasan: But... but... forza...

Paddy da Costa: And that's it from us tonight, folks. I'm Paddy da Costa.

Jeremy Pauker: And I'm Jeremy Pauker! The idiot over there is Neal Hasan.

Neal Hasan: Oi!

Paddy da Costa: Good night!
