Bayern Munich secures the treble after winning 3:2 against VfB Stuttgart in German Cup Final!

FC Bayern Munich secured the treble as the first German team ever after the 3:2 victory over VfB Stuttgart in the German Cup. Bayern won the Bundesliga title, Champions League title and the German Cup this season.

It was the best Bayern team we have ever seen and it was one of the best Bayern season in the history of the club. Bayern will join the likes of Inter Milan (2010), Barcelona (2009), Manchester United (1999), PSV Eindhoven (1988), Ajax (1972) and Celtic (1967) who are the only European teamso that have won the treble in the past.

VfB Stuttgart, however, was a tough opponent and the team of Bruno Labbadia created major chances through Maxims in the first half. Both team played quality attacking football, however, Bayern started to control the game mid through the first half. Alaba missed a great chance against VfB keeper Ulreich in the 27th minute. Bayern kept attacking and referee Grafe pointed at the penalty spot after Traoré fouled Lahm in the box. Muller took charge and scored the lead for Bayern from the spot in the 37th minute.

Bayern came back and Gomez extended the Bayern lead right after half time – 2:0 Bayern. Gomez scored the third just a couple minutes later after he was set up by Muller. Bayern was already celebrated and slowed down the pace of the game. However, VfB came back though Harnik who scored the consolidation goals in the 71st and the 80th minute. Bayern and their fans however celebrated afterwards.

Matthias Sammer: “There were a couple of spells where we failed to live up to our high footballing standards, but that’s only human just a week after the Champions League final. Jupp Heynckes has now received the recognition he deserves. His hallmarks are clarity, planning, attention to detail, work rate and wisdom. The treble is only the icing on the cake.”

Jupp Heynckes: “It’s an emotional moment. As everyone can see, we’re a superb collective and a superb team. And the players have given me a fantastic gift. This treble is unique.”

Jupp Heynckes will hold a press conference on Tuesday where he will reveal his future plans. He admitted that he is too old to manage a team abroad, but there are rumours that he will make a move to Real Madrid.
