Bayern Munich won DFB-Pokal as Robert Lewandowski scores 50 goals for the season


Robert Lewandowski scored his 50th and 51st goals of the season as Bayern Munich won their 20th DFB Pokal Cup after comfortably beating Bayer Leverkusen 4-2.

Hansi Flich ‘s team dominated the first half, helped by Leverkusen’s sluggishness off the field, and took the lead thanks to a superb free-kick from veteran David Alaba.

Peter Bosch ‘s men struggled to push upfront, despite Leon Bailey ‘s support, and found themselves 2-0 down for his 20th goal of the season, following Serge Gnabry ‘s calm finish.

At the break, Bosch took Kevin Volland and Kerem Demirbay but, after a long-range volley that came in after Lukas Hradecky’s howler, failed to prevent the momentum with Lewandowski scoring the Bundesliga champions’ third goal.

When Sven Bender headed in from a corner, Leverkusen gave himself some hope, but Lewandowski added a fourth before a late Kai Havertz penalty as the Bavarians completed the league and cup double.
