Bayern Munich got the German Cup

Share |

This title means a lot to players and fans. Bayern Munich avoided a potential upset Saturday by defeating a strong Eintracht Frankfurt squad 1-0 to retain the DFB Cup. This achievement puts Bayern on course for an historic league and cup double.

Considering their superiority in the local League, Michael Ballack,'s team could have been expected to take Eintracht Frankfurt apart in the DFB Cup final in Berlin on Saturday evening. The best hopes of Frankfurt, the club 36 points behind the league leaders, at the kick-off could well have been to keep the goal tally to a respectable level.

Bayern, the favorites to begin their historic push to become the first ever German squad to complete back-toback league and cup doubles, looked sluggish as Frankfurt began the game with relish. In fact, while the underdogs attacked crisply, Munich played sloppy balls and lost possession in such a nonchalant way that it seemed that the dull procession to another league title may have atrophied their desire.

Bayern Munich got their best moment at 30 minutes to go when Ze Roberto floated over a corner to the far post where Pizarro was lurking. Frankfurt's Patrick Ochs missed his header and the Peruvian hit-man stooped to give Bayern the lead.

Ballack and his teammates could complete the historic double "Double" on Wednesday night when they entertain Stuttgart, if Hamburg slip up against second-from-bottom team Cologne the night before.
