German Cup: Leverkusen easily reaches Kaiserslautern in the final

Bayer Leverkusen easily qualified for the German Cup final, after outclassing Fortuna Düsseldorf, 3rd in the 2nd division, 4-0, Wednesday evening in their BayArena in the semi-final. Xabi Alonso's men quickly took control of the match through Jeremie Frimpong (7th), before Amine Adli doubled the lead (20th). Florian Wirtz scored twice (35th and 60th). On May 25, Leverkusen will face Kaiserslautern, currently sixteenth in the German 2nd division, at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin.

This will be the fifth German Cup final for Leverkusen, the first since 2020 (defeat against Bayern Munich 4-2). For Kaiserslautern, it will be the eighth final, the first since 2003 (lost against Bayern). It will come at the end of a season which may mark the history of the club founded by the chemist Bayer in 1904. In 120 years of existence, Leverkusen has only won two trophies: a UEFA Cup (ancestor of the Europa League) in 1988 and a German Cup in 1993.

This season, Leverkusen is still undefeated in 40 matches played in all competitions. In the Bundesliga, the Werkself (the “factory eleven”) needs a maximum of three victories in the last seven days to mathematically secure a first league title and put an end to eleven seasons of Bayern hegemony over the German championship. .

In the Europa League, the club on the outskirts of Cologne faces West Ham in the quarter-finals (first leg in eight days in Leverkusen, return match a week later in London). The final day of the Bundesliga is scheduled for Saturday May 18, the Europa League final on Wednesday May 22 and the Cup final on Saturday May 26.

For the end of the season, Xabi Alonso recorded good news on Wednesday, with the return of his Nigerian striker Victor Boniface, after more than three months of absence due to injury (last match on December 20).
