Bayern Munich beat RB Leipzig in DFB-Pokal final to secure double

Bayern Munich greats Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben bowed out on a high as the club won the DFB-Pokal for a ninth domestic double in 19 years by beating RB Leipzig 3-0.

The pair, both late substitutes, played little part in the actual result which owed everything to two goals from Robert Lewandowski either side of Kingsley Coman's individual effort.

Lewandowski, the competition's highest scorer this season with seven, also took his individual tally in German Cup finals to seven as Bayern won it for the 19th time in their history.

Leipzig never looked like securing their first major trophy once their dominance of the opening 15 minutes ended.

Manuel Neuer, back in the side after six weeks out with a calf problem, was the first goalkeeper to be tested when he tipped Yussuf Poulsen's powerful header on to the underside of the crossbar in the 11th minute.

But Bayern struck with their first shot on target in the 29th minute, with Lewandowski superbly converting a twisting, stooping header when David Alaba's cross arrived slightly behind him.

Ibrahima Konate then headed off the line after Coman had rounded goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi having sprinted on to Mat Hummels' defence-splitting through-ball, although an offside flag went up rather late.

Lewandowski should have doubled the lead on the stroke of half-time but was too slow to react and the ball hit his body after being fired in and Gulacsi blocked.

Minutes into the second half Neuer raced to the edge of the area to save a one-on-one with Emil Forsberg while Hummels' drive forced Gulacsi to dive low to his right.

Lewandowski directed a looping header wide before Robben was introduced for his farewell appearance after a decade at the club.

With 12 minutes remaining Coman's clever piece of control set him up for the second goal and Lewandowski scored his second late on, allowing Bayern fans to also bid farewell to substitute Ribery, who is ending his 12-year association with Bayern.
