Bayern Munich remain on course to win another domestic double as they reached the German Cup final after a 2-1 victory against Frankfurt

Bayern took the lead when Muller chipped the defence and Perisic powered his header past Frankfurt goalkeeper Kevin Trapp on 14 minutes.

Despite a superb first half in which they took the lead, Bayern were made to sweat after completely losing their rhythm after the break and allowing their opponents to come back into the match with a goal from Danny Da Costa.

Frankfurt’s Kamada managed to beat three defenders in the area before his speculative pass across goal found de Costa, who smashed his shot past German wall, Manuel Neuer on 69 minutes. It was no more than Frankfurt deserved, but Bayern responded by moving up a gear.

Bayern’s second goal was calibrated by Canadian teenager Alphonso Davies by beating the defence in the opponent’s area and squared to Lewandowski who was waiting to fire home his 45th goal in 39 matches this season. The referee checked for offside with VAR, but the goal stood and Bayern are into their 25th German Cup final.

“In the first half we should have scored more goals. In the second half we did not do it well,” Bayern coach Hansi Flick said.

“But it was a Cup game and at the end it was a deserved qualification. It could have been an easier second half if we had done it better in the first.” He added.

Bayern Munich Vs Bayer Leverkusen in the finals

Bayern Munich will face Bayer Leverkusen, who beat fourth-tier side Saarbruecken 3-0 on Tuesday, in the final at Berlin’s Olympic Stadium on July 4. 

However, Bayern will be without both Lewandowski and Mueller, who are both suspended. “We need to rest up well and then go again on Saturday, the programme is punishing for all teams, so there is no whinging, but the tiredness is greater than the joy of reaching the final,” added Mueller.
