Head-to-head record

  • The two sides are facing off for the eighth time in the history of the DFB-Pokal. Five of the previous seven ties went into extra time, with two of those being decided via a penalty shoot out: the first ever meeting in the final in 1984 (1-1, 7-6 on pens to Bayern) and the most recent in the 2011/12 semi-final (0-0, 4-2 on pens to Bayern).
  • In the semi-final of the 1984/85 Pokal, Bayern came out on top 1-0 in extra time. The sides met again in the second round in 1987/88. The first game ended in a 2-2 draw after extra time, before Bayern won the reverse fixture 3-2 after extra time at the Olympiastadion in Munich. Bayern won on two other occasions in the second round: a 2-1 win in Gladbach in the 1996/97 season and a 3-1 home victory in the 2007/08 season.
  • Bayern have of their last five competitive games at BORUSSIA-PARK, a 5-1 win in March 2019. The most recent meeting was a 1-1 draw in August, with the Foals winning the other three meetings.
