  • Bayer Leverkusen won the German Cup and accomplished their first-ever domestic double.
  • Leverkusen’s victory in the Olympic stadium in Berlin is their second German Cup triumph.
  • Club CEO Fernando Carro said that the team’s performance was commendable and that they deserved to win.

With a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Kaiserslautern of the second division on Saturday, Bundesliga champion Bayer Leverkusen won the German Cup and accomplished their first-ever domestic double.

This victory came only a few days after their incredible 51-game unbeaten streak—a European record—was halted by a 3-0 loss to Atalanta in the Europa League final.

German Cup

With a 1-0 victory over Kaiserslautern of the second division, Bayer Leverkusen won the German Cup and completed their first-ever domestic double. Their 51-game unbeaten streak came to an end a few days before the victory, as they lost 3-0 to Atalanta in the Europa League final.

Leverkusen’s victory in the Olympic stadium in Berlin is their second German Cup triumph, having occurred in 1993. Granit Xhaka’s 20-meter strike in the 16th minute proved to be the game-winning goal, and Leverkusen held control of the encounter even after being reduced to 10 men following Odilon Kossounou’s second card.

The second half saw Kaiserslautern struggle to generate opportunities, which gave Leverkusen the confidence to comfortably maintain their lead and complete an incredible season with a second trophy. Club CEO Fernando Carro said that the team’s performance was commendable and that they deserved to win.

After losing all of their major titles since winning the Cup in 1993, Leverkusen was derided as “Neverkusen,” but after winning the German Cup and the Bundesliga title without a loss, they put an end to their critics.
