QUESTION: Should Bayern throw away this competition to focus on the BL/UCL instead?

This is the most congested season ever in terms of fixtures so if we sacrifice the DFB Pokal it would mean lesser gamers during March/April/May.

EDIT:
I know it's against Hans Dieter-Flick's principles but winning the BL is a bare minimum for Bayern and I would prefer a UCL win 100 times over another German Cup which Bayern have won record times anyway. Winning the treble again with this congested schedule and piling injuries/fatigue/(false) COVID positives is probably unrealistic.

By "throwing away" I mean fielding a B team in the remaining games and including lot of youth players as well. Basically, No Lewandowski, Müller, Neuer, Goretzka and Gnabry.

If we still win despite not taking the competition seriously that would be a testament to the strength and capabilities of our fringe and youth players and of course our awesome Coach too!

Still a no for me. We should rotate of course, but we don’t need to field full B-teams. We can rotate in most BL games too.

Probably we would end up doing just that cause we will be forced to

Between purposely losing the next Pokal match and winning the competition there are just 3 matches.

Exactly, and only two in the later stages of the season... So the April/May argument doesn’t hold...

Plus, it's not like playing a few BuLi games with the B teams is going to make any difference in us winning or not.
