After winning the Bundesliga last weekend for the eighth time, Bayern Munich will play Bayer Leverkusen in the 77th German Cup final at Olympiastadion in Berlin on Saturday at 1:50 p.m. ET.
ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes will show the match, which also will be streamed live on the ESPN App.
This is a confrontation of two of the oldest soccer clubs in Germany.
One of the most successful clubs in European soccer, Bayern Munich, founded in 1900, is playing in its 24th German Cup title match and chasing its 20th title.
Founded in 1904, Bayer Leverkusen won its only German Cup title in 1993 in its first appearance in the cup final. This will be the team’s fourth appearance in the final.
Adrian Healey and analyst Taylor Twellman, who began his professional soccer career in Germany, will handle English-language commentary on ESPN2, while Fernando Palomo and Barak Fever will call the Spanish-language telecast on ESPN Deportes.
The German Cup, also known as the DFB-Pokal, is the preeminent annual knockout competition in German football. The Cup is considered the second-most important club competition in the country after the Bundesliga. Bayern Munich has won the title 19 times – well ahead of second place Werder Bremen with six titles. The first German Cup was played in 1935, and 64 teams each year participate in the competition.
