Bayern Munich lifted the DFB-Pokal title after defeating Bayer Leverkusen 4-2 in the final here on Saturday. David Alaba’s outstanding free-kick handed Bayern an early lead and Serge Gnabry then doubled the lead in the 24th minute.

Consolidating Bayern Munich’s position in the match, Robert Lewandowski netted a goal in the 59th minute. However, Sven Bender was able to cut the deficit just after four minutes as he scored Bayer Leverkusen’s first goal.

Lewandowski then again handed Munich a three-goal lead with a goal in the 89th minute. Bayer Leverkusen’s Kai Havertz was managed to score a goal after he successfully converted a penalty but it was not enough to stop Bayern Munich from lifting the title.
