Bayern Munich remains on the road to a historic victory with the victory of the German Cup in Bayer Leverkusen

Bayern Munich came out on top in an exciting German Cup final, defeating Bayer Leverkusen 4-2 to secure their 20th title and stay on track for a historic milestone.
David Alaba’s stunning free kick and Serge Gnabry’s clinical finish gave Bayern a training lead leads to halftime and the Hans-Dieter Flick side already had a hand in the trophy.

However, Leverkusen responded well early in the second half and had a golden opportunity to halve the deficit through substitute Kevin Woland.

Moussa Diaby showed blisters to get past Alphonso Davies – widely considered the fastest player in German football – and put the ball on a plate for Volland, who completely lost his temper and completely missed the shot.

The decisive moment of the final will be proved, as Bayern went to the other extreme almost immediately and put the game without a doubt after a nightmare for Luka Hradeki, who saw the goalkeeper of Leverkusen fall in the shot of Robert Lewandowski.

He will fall as the goal of the Polish striker – certainly not his most beautiful – and his overall result this season reached a record 50.

Leverkusen eventually scored a goal through Sven Bender, but it was a little more than a consolation, as Lewandowski snatched his second game – and 51st in just 43 games this season – to make it 4-1 with less than a minute to go. to play .

There was even time for the assistant referee to intervene and add some extra drama as Davies was thought to have handled the ball in the penalty area. Kai Havertz, one of the most exciting talents in world football, went up to the spot and broke the ball in the top corner.

Haverts hit the turf in frustration, knowing the goal was in vain and, almost like a hard joke, referee Tobias Welz blew the whistle for a full hour as soon as the ball had landed in the back of the net.

Football continued without fans for several weeks after the sport returned to Europe after the closure of the corona, but the lack of noise from the team’s supporters makes even an occasion like this feel a bit hollow.

As the Bayern players lifted the trophy, their screams and shouts of joy could clearly be heard around the empty stands of the Olympic House in Berlin.

Robert Lewandowski scored his 50th and 51st goals of an incredible season.

With the Bundesliga title already completed, Bayern are now two-thirds of the way they have only finished second in the club’s history.

Then for the long-time German champions is the 16-second round of the Champions League against Chelsea, with Bayern having a seemingly insurmountable 3-0 lead after the first leg in London on 25 February.

Bayern will now be among the favorites to secure the Champions League title when the competition resumes in a different form next month. The rest of the games will end in August with a one-legged match in Lisbon, Portugal.

For now, however, Bayern will be celebrating their continued dominance in German football and its fifth domestic double in the last 10 seasons.
