Bayer Leverkusen advances to DFB Pokal finals

Bayer Leverkusen went on the road and ended the Cinderella run of fourth-division club Saarbrucken with a 3-0 victory in the DFB Pokal (German Cup) semifinals.  

Leverkusen were able to take advantage of Saarbrucken early in this match because Saarbrucken had not played a match in over three months due to the coronavirus shutdown.  Leverkusen scored quickly in the 11th minute when Kerem Demirbay put in a marvelous pass to Moussa Diaby, who had made a perfectly timed diagonal run to tap the ball in to go up 1-0.

Saarbrucken were then forced to open up their style of play because they were down a goal, but Lucas Alario scored eight minutes later off of a deflected save to put Leverkusen up 2-0.  Demirbay obtained his second assist after halftime by saving the ball and passing it to Karim Bellarabi, who put the ball into the top of the net.

Bayer Leverkusen will now advance to the DFB Pokal Final against the winner of the other semifinal match to be played tomorrow between  Bayern Munich and Eintracht Frankfurt.  The final will be played on July 4th.  Since the MLB will not be back by then, there will still be some sort of sports on Independence Day.

    • Yeah, ESPN does not block their videos. The only reason that I write about soccer is because I applied to be a blogger on ESPNFC about 10 years ago, but I did not make the cut. I then decided to write about soccer on the various blogs that I have been over the years. Allvoices used to be the best writing blog ever and I used to post there until they went under about five or six years ago.
