& # 39; We knew it would be difficult. We had the punishment, but we also had the chances. "We deserved to continue," said Niko Kovac of Bayern, who could become the first coach to win the German Cup with several teams in successive years.
& # 39; We were caught in those two minutes and Bremen is suddenly flat & # 39 ;, said Kovac, who won the cup last year with Frankfurt. & # 39; The penalty may have been a bit of luck, but in general we fully earned the win. & # 39;

The hosts had their share of the odds, but it was Bayern who again scored with Mueller in the 63rd.
However, Werder fought back through Yuya Osako in the 74th minute and Milot Rashica in the 75th minute.
Lewandowski, however, silenced the home crowd with his shot, which was awarded for a foul on Kingsley Coman of Theodor Gebre Selassie, which made the Bremen players furious with the decision.
The Polish attacker had had a hat trick, but he knocked the post off after a meter in the off time.
