Alaba made one tackle and kept a clean sheet in Saturday's 0-0 (4-3 on penalties) victory over Borussia Dortmund in the DFB Pokal final.

Alaba has been one of the most consistently fielded defenders for Bayern Munich this season and led the squad in total clearances (42). He also rarely picks up fouls and cards and only accumulated 11 and 2 respectively in 30 Bundesliga appearances. Although Alaba only registered one tackle in Saturday's DFB Pokal final, he was able to keep the clean sheet as he has done so often this season in the Bundesliga.

The versatile defender made almost no statistical impact on the match, but he did help Bayern to their third consecutive league shutout. Alaba continues to serve as a jack of all trades along the back line, but he is typically reliant on clean sheets to generate fantasy points when he plays inside. Bayern will resume league play versus Eintracht Frankfurt after the upcoming international break.
