Frankfurt Stun Bayern To Lift DFB Pokal Title

DFB Pokal Final Report: Bayern Munich v Eintracht Frankfurt 19 May 2018

DFB Pokal
 
Result: Bayern Munich 1-3 Eintracht Frankfurt
 
Date: 19 May 2018
 
Venue: Olympiastadion Berlin
 
Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich's hopes of clinching a league and cup double were dashed as they lost 3-1 to Eintracht Frankfurt in the DFB Pokal final. 

The Bavarians went agonisingly close to taking the lead after eight minutes but Robert Lewandowski's free-kick rattled the frame of the goal.

It was Frankfurt who took a surprising lead after 11 minutes as Kevin-Prince Boateng picked out Rebic with a fine pass and the striker calmly slotted past Sven Ulreich.

Bayern nearly restored parity on 24 minutes as Lewandowski latched onto a pass from Franck Ribery before sending audacious flick inches wide of the upright.

It was one-way traffic from there on as Bayern dominated the possession, although they were struggling to carve out clear-cut openings.

That proved to be the trend for the remaining stages of the first half as Niko Kovac's charges led by the lone goal at the break.

Seven minutes into the second half, Bayern were level as Kimmich raced into the box before picking out Lewandowski, who poked the ball home from 12-yards out.

Outgoing Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes opted for a change on 64 minutes as Christian Tolisso was introduced for Thiago Alcantara, who expressed his displeasure with the decision.

Lewandowski nearly completed the comeback with 15 minutes remaining, but the striker's header sailed inches wide of the upright.

The woodwork came to Bayern's frustration in the 80th minute when Mats Hummels' towering header crashed against the crossbar.

Two minutes later, Frankfurt retook the lead as Rebic out-ran two Bayern defenders before calmly slotting past the on-rushing Ulreich.

However, Frankfurt sealed the win in the fifth minute of second-half stoppage time, with Mijat Gaćinović firing into an empty net after a swift counter-attack as head coach Niko Kovac led his side to glory, before he bids the club farewell and joins Bayern Munich for the new season.
