Leverkusen progressed to the final of the DFB-Pokal after ending the fairytale run of Saarbrucken with a comfortable 3-0 semi-final victory. Kerem Demirbay was the best player in the match, and the best player of the semi-final round overall.
The 26-year-old had a hand in all three goals, recording two assists and playing a massive part in the other.
For his official assists, he dinked a gorgeous pass over the top of the opposition defence for Moussa Diaby to cleverly finish, which was followed by a cheeky touch over the oncoming defender inside the box followed by the pass inside for Karim Bellarabi to score the third.
In between, he basically set up the second goal for Lucas Alario with a stinging cross inside which proved too hot to handle for the Saarbrucken keeper and one of his defenders, allowing the Argentine to smash in the loose ball.
Demirbay ran the show overall, completing 81/87 passes to team-mates as well as enjoying 114 touches of the ball which was more than any other player in this semi-final round.
Going forward, he contributed five successful crosses and 16 passes into the final third, as well as recording an outstanding pass completion rate of 93%.
When up against an opposition player he was usually dominant, too, winning 7/12 duels and 4/5 tackles, as well as making nine ball recoveries and two clearances.
Another game of football, another assist for Thomas Muller. In all competitions this season, he has assisted no less than 24 goals for his team-mates, including one against Eintracht Frankfurt.
Just 14 minutes in, he opportunistically picked out Ivan Perisic with a lofted cross into the box on the half-volley which was dutifully scored by the Croatian with the header.
Muller held an authority over Frankfurt and they couldn't really get near him.
He won 7/9 duels and 100% of his aerial duels (3/3), while he also made five ball recoveries and two clearances.
