RB Leipzig 0-3 Bayern Munich: Robert Lewandowski & # 39; s support and sublime strike by Kingsley Coman ensure 12th double for German giants
- The greats of Bayern Munich Ribery and Robben boast a high point with victory
- Lewandowski scored both sides of Coman's & # 39; s nice individual bet on Saturday
- Kovac became the first man to win the double with Bayern, both as a player and as a coach
Bayern Munich greeted Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben bowed high when the Bundesliga champions won the German Cup to win a 12th home double – and their ninth in 19 years.
The pair, both late substitutes, played little in the actual result that was all due to two goals from Robert Lewandowski standing on either side of Kingsley Coman & # 39; s individual bet.
Lewandowski, the highest scorer of the competition this season with seven, also took his individual score in the German cup final to seven, as Bayern won it for the 19th time in their history.

Leipzig never looked forward to capturing their first major trophy once their dominance of the opening ended after 15 minutes.
Manuel Neuer, back on the sidelines with a calf problem after six weeks, was the first goalkeeper to be tested when he threw Yussuf Poulsen & # 39; s powerful header on the bottom of the crossbar in the eleventh minute.
But Bayern struck with their first shot on target in the 29th minute, with Lewandowski striking a spinning, curved head when David Alaba's cross came just behind him.
Ibrahima Konate then headed the line after Coman had rolled out goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi who sprinted on Mat Hummels & # 39's def-pass through-ball, although an offside flag went up quite late.

Lewandowski should have doubled the lead at half-time, but was too slow to react and the ball hit his body after being shot at and blocking Gulacsi.
Minutes in the second half, Neuer rushed to the edge of the area to save Emil Forsberg one-on-one, while Hummels' drive forced Gulacsi to dive low to the right.
Lewandowski directed a loop wide headline before Robben was introduced for his farewell appearance after a decade at the club.
With 12 minutes left, Coman & # 39; s handsome control function left him for the second goal and Lewandowski scored his second late time, leaving Bayern fans to say goodbye to Ribery, who ends his 12-year relationship with Bayern.
