F. A. Z.

A couple of cars of police came to the almost deserted Olympic space for order, a single Snack bar had opened a monopoly, but it is not the business of life, even if a few Diehards were still. Inside, the club had decorated her curves in the club colours. While in Munich, hundreds of fan club lettering such as name badges of the Absent had, were draped the seats in the players ' tunnel in Black and Red, Bayers. "Bring the Cup to Lev" was on a Banner on the left, "Writes history" on the right.

The path to the goal, the Bayern but found – and fast. David Alaba with a directly converted free-kick (16. Minute) and Serge Gnabry (24.) languages well before the break, a word of Power. Later, Robert Lewandowski put under stronger by Using the Bayer goalkeeper Lukas Hradecky to (59.), and the 4:1 (89, just before the end still.) so that the team Hansi Flick, the 30. Championship the 20. Cup victory after a gig, the first was all of a piece, equally lust - as powerful, economically and in defence, a sloppy, what Bayer but only for the 3:1-Anschlusstor by Sven Bender (64.)and to use very late to the 4:2 Kai Havertz from the penalty spot knew (90.+5.). To get there was for Leverkusen, once again, nothing, not the second Cup victory and the first title for 27 years.

"The most Important

missing", On Friday, the DFB had announced that the final stays up to and including 2025 in Berlin. This 77. The final, but now has a permanent place in the memories for sure. As a Symbol for, depending on perspective, Power, and feasibility in Corona, but also for the borders. DFB-President Fritz Keller had recently dared even to make an advance, whether or not the audience could be admitted, one thousand, but the Senate of Berlin not played with. "The most Important thing is missing," said cellar, and hide the in the Olympic stadium with the vocal contribution of the delegations advantage Bayer – and a lot of club colours are not allowed.

After the Teams had lined up with a distance for the national anthem, Bayern properly, the Leverkusen compressed to two-thirds of the proposed line, and after the minute of silence for the Corona-victims of the Leverkusen tried to put the first accents. But before they knew it, and rolled the Bayern-roller over them. Goretzka was the force and acceleration centre, and after it had already looked like two promising, with a shot of Coman and a Chance to Gnabry in the last Moment it was disturbed, was a member of the Bayer for a Foul on Lewandowski's free-kick on the penalty area line – a case, as shown, for Alaba. Only a few minutes later, prevented the Bayer goalkeeper Hradecky with a deflected shot from Gnabry is still the 0:2. In the 24. Minute, but was named the winner in this duel, Gnabry, of Kimmich sent.

Bayer has threatened a debacle, but the Leverkusen wanted to let the thing endure. The two Times you were close to the Bayern goal, both times but just be in an Offside position. After the break, coach Peter Bosz fresh brought in offensive forces, Demirbay, and Volland. Volland missed after excellent work from Diaby and the almost certain connection. Than after an hour of Hradecky in a really harmless distance shot from Lewandowski to slip left, saw the matter decided. But Bayer reared up once more and managed a couple of Times, his pace is threatening to play. Bender met with a header before Lewandowski then made it all clear, before Havertz met from the point – nothing New so cemented in the German football hierarchy.
