The double for Leverkusen!

Winner of the Bundesliga for the first time in history this season, Bayer Leverkusen won the German Cup this Saturday.

And two! These trophies this season for Bayer, often mocked for its lack of success and a very meager record given the scale of the club readily nicknamed “Neverkusen” across the Rhine.

After winning the first league title in its history, Leverkusen returned to the German Cup at the same time and dominated in the final in Kaiserslautern. Facing the second division residents, Xabi Alonso’s men made the difference by the smallest of margins, and a goal from Xhaka in the 16the minute of the match (1-0). This is a bad example of Kossounou’s explosion at the end of the first period (44the).

Bayer’s first « Cup » was announced, which took place in 1993 in the competition. On the other hand, Leverkusen won a major continental trophy after their triumph in the 1988 UEFA Cup (3-0).
