Neuer, Muller chasing individual records as Bayern host Frankfurt

Germany's DFB Pokal is on its final stages as the second finalists will be known tonight when Bayern Munich take on Eintracht Frankfurt in the second semifinal. 

The match at the Allianz Arena comes 18 days after the two sides clashed in the Bundesliga, with the home side winning 5-2 following goals from Leon Goretzka, Thomas Müller, Robert Lewandowski, Alphonso Davies, and a Martin Hinteregger own goal. 

The home team enjoys a superior status and will be favorites to advance to the finals, owing to their recent record over their opponents. 

Two players though will particularly be praying for a victory as it will see their names engraved in the annals of the competition's history. 

Thomas Muller, who is enjoying a wonderful campaign in the Bundesliga, is just one cup win away from the record of 47, which is shared by Sepp Maier and Gerd Müller.

The 30-year-old has yet another record; being the only player to have featured in the competition's semi-finals 10 times and could add yet another tonight. 

The Bayern stalwart has also scored seven goals in semi-finals and is a hot-favorite to be on the scoresheet tonight. 

One other player who might also have his name in the history books is goalkeeper Manuel Neuer. 

The German international has kept 32 clean sheets in the cup competition in his career, and could now equal the all-time record of 33 set by predecessor Oliver Kahn.

Can they achieve this tonight, or will they have to wait for a little longer? Catch al the latest on the match here
