After clinching their 27th Bundesliga crown, Bayern Munich would be heading into this game with a domestic double on their mind as they look to send off Jupp Heynckes in style yet again. This is their fifth DFB Pokal final in seven years, and while Heynckes would have loved to win yet another treble for them with the Champions League included, a domestic double is not bad for a team that had almost lost the Bundesliga crown under Carlo Ancelotti early in the season.
The Bavarians have some injury concern ahead of this game, but they have the squad depth to see them through this match.
This is Eintracht Frankfurt’s second consecutive DFB Pokal final and they would feel this one is more important as they need to win here to secure European football next season after their final day loss to Schalke 04. Nico Kovac would be managing them for the last time as he takes over at Bayern Munich next season, he has a fully fit squad for this game and would hope his wards can give him the perfect sendoff.
Bayern are unbeaten in 14 games against their opponents and all but three of those matches have ended in wins for the German champions.
