Bayern players won the German cup title beating Borussia Dortmund 2-0 after extra-time.
Borussia were hoping to win at least one title this season as they entered the pitch of Berlin olympic stadium, while Bayern's aim was to redeem themselves for producing less then expected this season, and Bavarians were the ones whose plan worked out.
The Bundesliga champions won the Cup in what was less then a great game. While the game rhythm was decent, both nets remained untouched for 90 minutes.
The first chance of the game came after just 4 minutes of play for Thomas Muller, but Roman Weidenfeller saved his shot. We saw some more excitement in front of both goals at the and of the first half, and Robert Lewandowski had a good chance to bring Borussia in the lead but could not score.
Muller tried again on 55 minutes, this time heading the ball towards Weidenfeller's goal, but the keeper was once again in the right place. 64 minutes in Borussia were damaged by the referee. Matts Hummels took a shot, the ball crossed the goal line, before Dante managed to kick it out. The referee signalled nothing.
Oliver Kirch came on for Borussia, and had a good chance on 73 minutes, but Neuer saved it. Both Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery had good chances before the game ended, but the result stayed unchanged, and Borussia goalkeeper showed a lot of skills keeping all the chances out.
The first 15 minutes of after-time brought no change, but just two minutes into the second half of after-time Robben scored to give Bavarian side the lead. Muller scored again for Bayern with seconds to go, and crowned the Bayern win.
This is the 17th time Bayern Munich win the title, second time in a row, and 8th time in just 15 years.
