The 1993 DFB-Pokal Final decided the winner of the 1992–93 DFB-Pokal, the 50th season of Germany's premier knockout football cup competition. It was played on 12 June 1993 at the Olympiastadion in Berlin.[1] Hertha BSC's second team, playing in the third division, made it to the final against Bayer Leverkusen, making it the first and only time a reserve side has made it to the final, as second teams have since been disallowed from entering the competition. Leverkusen won the match 1–0 to claim their first cup title.

Route to the final

The DFB-Pokal is a sixty-four team single-elimination knockout cup competition. There are a total of five rounds leading up to the final. Teams are drawn against each other in pots, and the winner after 90 minutes advances. If still tied, extra time, and if necessary penalties are used to determine the winner.[2]
