Leverkusen x Fortuna: where to watch it, lineups and refereeing

At home, the emblematic team of the Bundesliga and almost champions of Alemão, seeks a place in the final of the second most important tournament in the country

Virtually champions of Germany and with the possibility of becoming the first unbeaten winner of the Bundesliga, Leverkusen can, this Wednesday (3/4), guarantee their presence also in the German Cup final. After all, at 3.45pm (Brasilia time) they will face Fortuna Dusseldorf at home in the semi-final. Since it is a single match, whoever wins advances. But a draw takes the decision to penalties. Whoever reaches the final, scheduled for May 25th at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin, will face Kaiserslautern.

The curious thing is that Leverkusen were the only German Cup semi-finalists to play in the elite. After all, Fortuna Dusseldorf is in the Second Division, Kaiserslautern is in the relegation zone in the Second Division and they beat Saarbrucken in the Third Division this Tuesday, 2-0.

Where to look

ESPN 4 and Star+ channels broadcast from 3.45pm (Brasilia time).

How is Leverkusen?

Xabi Alonso will have to do without three important players. Fan Arthur and wildcard Boniface have been injured for a long time and have no intention of returning. Exequeil Palácios was disqualified due to an injury to his right thigh.

How is Fortuna Dusseldorf?

If Leverkusen regrets three absences, Dusseldorf finds itself in a very similar situation. Bunk, Gavory and Sobottka are suspended and there is a small chance that Uchino, recovering from a concussion, will go to the bench. But the coach had some great news. In doubt was the striker Tzoplis, top scorer of the Second League with 17 goals. However he trained normally and will go to the match. He will therefore be the great hope of the away attack.
