Saarbrucken vs Bayer Leverkusen Prediction and Betting Preview 09 June 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 0-3
Saarbrucken vs Bayer Leverkusen PredictionWe are back in DFB Pokal action with lowly Saarbrucken and Bayer Leverkusen getting us rolling with the first game of the German Cup semi-finals. The Hermann-Neuberger-Stadion is expected to be buzzing when these world-class Leverkusen stars emerge from the tunnel before kick-off.
Match status: DFB Pokal - Semi-finals
Kick-off:
Venue: Hermann-Neuberger-Stadion (Völklingen)
With the German Cup kicking-off late last year, who would have thought Saarbrucken, of all teams, would make it all the way to the penultimate game of the competition? Not me! However, this is the reality as affairs have panned out in this manner.

Plying their trade in the league’s fourth-tier, Saarbrucken had been considered outsiders for the competition and quite rightly so. However, De FC have been the success story of the tournament, steamrolling their way to the semi-finals. How exactly did these lads manage to pull this off?

Still over-the-moon for their enviable achievements this season, Lukas Kwasniok’s charges will be looking to put celebrations on hold as they prepare for a crunch clash with Bayer Leverkusen on Tuesday evening.
 
Saarbrucken hell-bent on staging another upset in the German Cup, expect a thrilling encounter between these two sides in Volklingen come kick-off.

Saarbrucken vs Bayer Leverkusen Team News

You would be forgiven for not considering this lowly Saarbrucken outfit for a place in the semi-final stages of the German Cup, given the lack of talent and experience within their ranks. However, De FC have left us at a loss for words with their exploits so far.

With the likes of Regensburg, FC Koln, Karlsruher SC and Fortuna Dusseldorf already swept aside along the way, confidence levels are sky-high within the club’s dressing room. The highlight of their rollercoaster campaign was perhaps, the thrilling 3-2 victory over top-flight club FC Koln in the second-round.

Playing in front of the home crowd, Saarbrucken dazzled on the night, firing home two quick-fire goals to set them well on-course for victory. Pegged back by their superior counterparts with efforts from Hector and Terodde, we were in for a rip-roaring end to the game.

Both sides throwing men forward in search of the winner, Saarbrucken secured their progression through a cracking goal from Janicke just on the stroke of full-time. The home supporters were sent into raptures as they watched the ball trickle into the back of the net. 3-2 it ended in favor of Kwasniok’s men.

Bayer Leverkusen at this stage of the competition seems like the norm. They are one of the biggest teams in German football and are even in the running for a top-four finish in the Bundesliga.

Last time out in the cup, they easily saw off the threat of Union Berlin at the BayArena firing three goals past their sorry opponent. It was a routine win for Die Werkself as they easily clinched a berth in the semi-finals of the competition.
 
For this fixture, we are likely to witness a tightly-contested affair between these sides for a host of reasons. Saarbrucken will take confidence in the Hermann-Neuberger-Stadion factor. They have shocked a couple of top-flight teams on the road to the semi-finals and this fixture might be no exception.

Bayer Leverkusen were condemned to defeat last time out in the league as Bayern Munich posted a 4-2 score-line on the board. Given they could not hold on to their early lead in that fixture, Die Werkself have not exactly proven to be a side that thrives under pressure. Worryingly for them, tensions are expected to be flared in this fixture, to their detriment.

Saarbrucken vs Bayer Leverkusen Predictions

The home side are known for their resilience – one virtue that has gotten them this far in the competition. However, against a wounded Bayer Leverkusen side looking to clinch a piece of silverware before the end of the campaign, Saarbrucken are likely in for a tough time here.

Expect both teams to breach the other, at least once, before the end of the ninety minutes, with no more than three goals registered between both sides. Also, Bayer Leverkusen should have enough about themselves to advance to the finals of the German Cup.
