Leverkusen will be the favourite going into the contest.

FC Kaiserslautern have had a poor season, with the former giants languishing in 13th position in the German 2nd division. However, none of that will matter as they pulled up an amazing DFB Pokal campaign to reach the DFB Pokal final, beating the likes of Koln and Hertha Berlin en Route.

While they haven’t had to face any traditional German heavyweights so far, Kaiserslautern will look to make the most of the occasion by trying to pull off an upset. Meanwhile, Bayer Leverkusen suffered a heartbreaking but comprehensive 3-0 loss against Atalanta in the Europa League final to end their hopes for an unbeaten treble. However, Xabi Alonso’s men would look to bounce back to win the double.

Players to watch

Ragnar Ache (FC Kaiserslautern)

Ragnar Ache has been Kaiserslautern’s most dangerous player this season with 16 goals to his name in the league. The German striker, although a doubt for the fixture, is pacy and physical, and will be key if Kaiserslautern are to shock the champions.

Florian Wirtz (Bayer Leverkusen)

Florian Wirtz has been the talisman of a team that has been very impressive on the whole. The playmaker has 23 goal involvements in the league this season, along with 7 in the DFB Pokal. His vision and passing would be important for Leverkusen to unlock the FCK low block.

Match Facts

  • Leverkusen are unbeaten in German football this season.
