Xabi Alonso’s high-flying Bayer Leverkusen side are through to the DFB-Pokal final after a comfortable 4-0 win over 2. Bundesliga side Fortuna Düsseldorf on Wednesday night.

In a very one-sided affair, the Bundesliga leaders broke the deadlock after just seven minutes through Jeremie Frimpong.

Amine Adli doubled the lead after 20 minutes before Florian Wirtz put Leverkusen 3-0 up in the 35th minute, practically putting the game out of Fortuna’s reach.

On the hour mark, Wirtz scored his second of the night from the penalty spot to make it 4-0 and round off a successful night for Bayer 04.

Leverkusen will face another 2. Bundesliga side, Kaiserslautern, in the final on May 25.
