Bayern Munich have won the DFB-Pokal after beating Borussia Dortmund 4-3 on penalties.
Douglas Costa scored the decisive penalty to hand Pep Guardiola the trophy and the domestic double before he leaves for Manchester City.
After a domestically prosperous three seasons in charge of Bayern, Pep Guardiola will be moving on from his tenure at the Allianz Arena to pastures new with Manchester City after today’s occasion. With three consecutive Bundesliga titles already in the bag, he will be hoping to end his stay in Germany with a double which may go some way to making up for a lack of Champions League triumph with Die Bayern.
It’s a big day for Mats Hummels. He plays his final game for Dortmund before crossing to rivals Bayern next season. His team-mates have insisted he is only focused on helping BVB claim the DFB-Pokal, rather than trying to keep his future employers happy.
Half-time in the DFB-Pokal final. It has been a typically tense cup final this evening, with the two best teams in Germany facing off against each other to a 0-0 stalemate at the break. There has been a few glimpses of quality, from Aubameyang and Muller in particular, but the defences are on top so far with both goalkeepers rarely called into action. Second period to come, and hopefully some goals!
End of the 90 minutes in the German Cup final. Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund have not been able to separate themselves in normal time, and end the match at a 0-0 stalemate with extra-time coming up shortly. Two extremely evenly matches sides, so this was probably always the most likely scenario. Who will lift the trophy in the end?!
Full-time in the German Cup, and we are heading for PENALTIES. There were some displays of quality throughout the 120 minutes, but neither goalkeeper was tested near enough to make a plethora of goals likely, so we find ourselves at a 0-0 stalemate. Spotkicks coming up, so who will prove to have the battle to claim the trophy? Nerve-shredding stuff!
