The Olympiastadion is the venue of the German Cup final between Bayern Munich and Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday evening.

The Bavarians suffered a heavy 4-1 defeat against VfB Stuttgart at home in their final Bundesliga game of the season but it mattered little with the title already sealed since matchday 29.

Jurgen Heynckes men will now set sights on doing a domestic double and are (1.22) with Bet365 to win.

Die Adler finished their campaign in eighth place after a 1-0 loss to Schalke 04. They might have narrowly missed out European football but this competition offers them a spot.

Niko Kovac’s men reached the final last year but lost out 2-1 to Borussia Dortmund. A chance for them to lift their fifth cup title is priced at heavy odds of (12.00) with the same betting firm.

A draw is offered at odds of (6.50).

Die Roten have an outstanding record against Frankfurt in that they are unbeaten against the Hesse State outfit in eight years. It is thus almost certain that Heynckes’ charges will avoid defeat in Berlin at odds of (1.062).

Bayern have won their last three games against the Eagles which stresses why they are (1.083) to lift the trophy for the 19th time.

Kovac’s men have failed to score in 10 of their last 12 head to head meetings with the Munich giants and though the reverse league fixture 4-1, the Bavarians are still (1.90) to keep a clean sheet.

Robert Lewandowski is the German Cup top scorer this term with five goals and Bet365 tips the lethal Polish forward to score first in this tie at (3.10) and (1.44) anytime.
