The potential future German champions Bayer Leverkusen will welcome the Zweite Bundesliga side Fortuna Dusseldorf in a semifinal clash of the DFB Pokal at the BayArena on Wednesday.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Fortuna Dusseldorf Betting Tips: AH1 (-1.5)

Few could have foreseen Xabi Alonso would develop such a powerful machine that seems unstoppable on any front to emerge this campaign, as it sounds almost unbelievable that Bayer Leverkusen hasn't stumbled in any of their record-breaking 39 matches played across all competitions (W34, D5).

While the Bundesliga title remains a matter of mathematical precision for Die Werkself, the champagne bottles are lined up, awaiting the glorious moment that inches ever closer, particularly after Shick and his cohorts demonstrated an awe-inspiring winning mentality on Saturday, engineering a dramatic late-game reversal for a 2-1 victory over Hoffenheim.

Following the 11-time consecutive German champions Bayern's unpleasant humiliation right in Munich, succumbing to a painful 0-2 defeat in the Bundesliga's De Klassiker for the first time in a decade at the hands of Borussia Dortmund, the unstoppable Alonso-led squad has surged to an unassailable 13-point lead over the Bavarians after a stunning comeback victory.

With the Bundesliga top-flight title seeming like it's already in the bag and a reserved ticket to the UEFA Europa League quarter-finals, where they've set up a two-legged clash with Premier League outfit West Ham, the popular Pharmacists are in a fantastic position to add the DFB Pokal trophy to their collection for the first time since 1993, as their remaining challengers in the tournament are far behind them in terms of quality.

Among the underdogs chasing an unprecedented glory in the DFB Pokal stands Fortuna Dusseldorf, a team hailing from Germany's second division and one that could potentially cross swords with Leverkusen in league battles next season, as they boast a highly successful 2. Bundesliga campaign, currently nestling in third place with six points adrift from the automatic promotion spots.

Luck has undeniably been a huge ally for Daniel Thioune's side throughout this year's DFB Pokal edition, as the draw spared them from facing any top-flight teams en route to the semifinals, knocking out FV Illertissen, Unterhaching, second-tier counterpart Magdeburg, and then sending 2. Bundesliga table-toppers St. Pauli packing in the quarterfinals via a nerve-wracking penalty shootout, triumphing 6-5.

Fresh off their latest league venture, the Flingeraner have injected a substantial boost of self-belief ahead of a challenging cup semifinal showdown in Germany, as it took them a mere seven minutes in the second period to claim a dazzling comeback 3-1 triumph over the basement-dwellers Kaiserslautern, notching up their third consecutive 2. Bundesliga victory.

Despite Fortuna Dusseldorf's growing form in the second division, the Bay Arena has become a haunting ground for them, with five consecutive defeats and four scoreless matches, leaving little room to envision how the second-tier side could unsettle the ruthless Leverkusen, who are poised to unleash their full force and book a spot in the DFB Pokal final with a dominant victory on Wednesday.

Bayer Leverkusen team news

Despite showing positive signs in their recovery, the DFB Pokal semifinal comes too soon for the right-back Arthur and Nigerian goal machine Victor Boniface.

Following his absence during the international break due to a thigh injury picked up in one of the training sessions, Exequiel Palacios seems ready to at least make an appearance from the bench in Wednesday's showdown.

Fortuna Dusseldorf team news

Dusseldorf boss Daniel Thioune has not been spared personnel problems either, as he will have to do without Nicolas Gavory, Marcel Sobottka and Daniel Bunk, all sidelined with injuries.

Japanese right-back Takashi Uchino remains uncertain for midweek's DFB Pokal clash after being forced off the pitch early in the second half of the 3-1 win against Kaiserslautern.
