Germany: Fans greet Bayern Munich stars on their way to warmup ahead of DFB Cup final

Germany, Berlin
July 4, 2020 at 10:56 GMT -00:00 · Published

Several dozen Bayern Munich fans gathered outside the Marriott hotel in Berlin on Saturday morning, waiting for a chance to see their favourite football players as they show up ahead of the 2020 German Cup final match against Bayer Leverkusen.

Ivan Perisic, Benjamin Pavard, Alphonso Davies and other team mates were seen coming out of the Marriott hotel, followed by Robert Lewandowski, Manuel Neuer, Kingsley Coman, Thomas Muller and Niklas Sule as they got into the team bus. Police officers were present, as were fans and journalists.

After having already secured the Bundesliga title for the 8th consecutive time, the 30th in the club's history, Bayern is seeking to conquer the German Cup. On their way to the trophy-deciding match in Berlin, Hansi Flick's squad, led by Polish record-breaking goalscorer Robert Lewandowski, already eliminated Hoffenheim, Schalke 04 and Eintracht Frankfurt.

Meanwhile their opponents Bayer Leverkusen are striving to clinch their first trophy after 27 trophy-free years. The team, headed by coach Peter Bosz, passed Stuttgart, Union Berlin and Saarbrucken on their way to the 2020 DFB Cup final.

For the first time in the tournament's history, this year's final is to be played without spectators as well as without traditional fan festivals and marches to the arena due to coronavirus restrictions which were introduced when the Bundesliga restarted about a month ago.
