DFB Pokal Final 2018
: Welcome to Eurosport's live coverage of the DFB Pokal Final between FC Koln and FC Bayern Munchen. I'm Neal Hasan and this here beside me is my fellow colleague Krupesh Shah, as well as Barcelona boss and former Bayern manager, Antonio Conte!
: Hello, everyone!
: This is Antonio, hello.
: Thanks for agreeing to be here today, Mr. Conte.
: It is no problem, and do call me Antonio.
: Right, let's take a look at the line-ups, shall we?
FC Bayern Munchen
: Neuer; Lahm, Xulu, Musacchio, Boateng; Verratti, Ramires; Ramirez, Schweinsteiger, Grealish; Ademilson
: Cillessen; Colin, Kubler, Tomic, Foulquier; Faty, Jajalo, Kubik, Strandquist; Ishak, Bruno
: Let's take a look at FC Koln first. Timo Horn is out injured so in steps Jasper Cillessen for the job today. Horn is going to be a massive miss for Koln for this Final, isn't he?
: Indeed, Neal. Koln have suffered a lot of untimely injuries to their key players like Adil Hermach and Osvaldo Martinez. This all but points to a Bayern win, but Koln could still cause an upset yet.
: Maxime Colin and Lukas Kubler are going to be very important for Koln today. They are the best defenders in the team and it'll be up to them to stop Bayern's attack force. I am also a little surprised Uwe Rosler is deciding to start Zlatko Tomic. The lad's just 17 and hasn't even appeared in a Bundesliga match yet!
: Neither Koln's midfield or attack look impressive. But perhaps if they keep parking the bus as fans would say, they could force this to go to penalties where they'll have a better chance of winning. What do you think of the Bayern squad today, Antonio?
: It's strong. Toni Kroos will be a huge miss for Bayern but David Beckham has chosen to play Bastian in Toni's position - and, although old, Bastian is still a very good player. I'm surprised Jerome Boateng is playing left-back, I'd expected him in central defense instead of Mateo Mussachio and Stefan Radu at left-back, like he has been for the majority of the season.
: In midfield, we have the duo of Ramires and Marco Verratti.
: It's a very good partnership. I struggle to understand why Rafa Benitez decided to leave Ramires to the bench when he was here. He's a brilliant player. I was the one who took Ramires to Bayern in 2013 and I've always rated him so I'm glad to see he's doing so well under David Beckham. I am also puzzled on why Marco Verratti was a benchwarmer at Tottenham - from what I can see, he would fit in perfectly to the team. But I think it is very good for Bayern that they have acquired him because he has put in a lot of good performances. I feel a little disappointed for Abdoulaye Sylla that he's not playing though. The boy has been very impressive throughout the season.
: What about Bayern's attack today? Do you think they can bypass Koln's defense?
: Yes, definitely! Gaston Ramirez and Jack Grealish are the best wingers at the club at the moment. Grealish always loves an assist while Gaston always loves a goal. They're the perfect left wing right wing duo. Ademilson is also going to be vital for Bayern today if they want to score.
: Thank you for the review, Antonio! Now let's get on to the match!
1' - We kick off here at the Olympiastadion.
11' Bayern GOAL - Bastian Schweinsteiger whips in the corner and Siyanda Xulu gets his head to it! It flies past Jasper Cillessen and yes, it's a goal!
19' - Bayern are piling on the pressure. Jack Grealish plays a beautiful pass to Ademilson who strikes it, but Cillessen does well to palm it away.
34' - PENALTY! Zlatko Tomic bizarrely pushes Ademilson down in the penalty box while the Brazilian striker is waiting to receive a pass from Gaston Ramirez. The Koln players are protesting, but it's pointless. A very soft push, but a penalty nonetheless, no question about that.
34' - Bastian Schweinsteiger will take this penalty. Will he make it 2-0?
34' - Aaaaaand no, he won't. Cillessen does well to anticipate Schweinsteiger's shot direction and hits it away to one of the defenders. Great save. There might be hope for Koln yet.
36' - Siyanda Xulu has picked up a knock. A bad tackle, but the South African has signaled to the bench that he wants to carry on.
39' - Gaston Ramirez strikes it, but Cillessen saves the ball.
40' Koln GOAL - A brilliant goal from FC Koln's Gianni Bruno! Mikael Ishak is on the receiving end of Cillessen's goal kick and the Swede passes it beautifully to Ishak, who makes the most of his dangerous position. 1-1!
45' - HT: Bayern 1-1 Koln. Half time at the Olympiastadion, and both sides go into the dressing rooms level.
45' - Welcome back for the second half of the DFB Pokal.
46' Bayern GOAL - Seems like David Beckham said something to his lads at half time! Ramires hits it up to Marco Verratti and the Italian unleashes a screamer that flies into the top left of the net. Bayern goes 2-1 up!
70' - Bayern use up their three substitutes as Per Mertesacker comes on for Siyanda Xulu; Abdoulaye Sylla is on for Ramires; and Bastian Schweinsteiger goes off for youngster Jacob Glibo.
73' - Koln also switches things up with Kacper Przybylko on for Gianni Bruno.
92' Bayern GOAL -Fans might have thought it was over, but it's not! Jacob Glibo crosses it for Jack Grealish, and the England winger hits it past the Koln goalie to make it 3-1! It's obvious who's won the DFB Pokal!
90' - FT: Bayern 3-1 Koln. And it is done! Bayern have won their first DFB Pokal since 2010!
: What a game, and what a result. FC Bayern Munchen have secured the DFB Pokal and it is David Beckham's first trophy outside of England.
: I reckon big things are on the horizon for Bayern!
: Thank you for joining us here today, I'm Neal Hasan, and here beside me is Krupesh Shah. Good night.
