On Saturday Franck Ribéry won the 24th title in his time at FC Bayern. No player in the club's history has collected more trophies. Besides, the Frenchman contested his eighth DFB Cup final, more than any other player. Ribéry left the pitch as winner six times, as often as Philipp Lahm, Oliver Kahn and Claudio Pizarro did. Only Bastian Schweinsteiger boasts more DFB Cup triumphs.
Record for Lewandowski
Robert Lewandowski set Bayern on their way to victory against Leipzig with his brilliant header before the half-hour, and he put the game to bed when he scored Bayern's third goal. The Poland captain set a new record on Saturday. He has scored six goals in DFB Cup finals, more than any other player. Gerd Müller and Uwe Seeler boast four goals. Lewandowski has scored seven goals in the competition this season, finishing DFB Cup top scorer for the third time in a row, another record. Lewandowski now has 33 cup goals under his belt, lying eighth in the all-time rankings after surpassing Claudio Pizarro.
