Impressive Bayern progress to final against Leverkusen
An impressive team performance, effective finishing and an outstanding keeper. That's a short but clear description of the 6-2 victory for FC Bayern in the DFB Cup semi-final tie against Bayer Leverkusen on 17 April 2018. "That was a demonstration of the team's quality of football," enthused chairman of the board Karl-Heinz Rummenigge back then.
Müller hat-trick, Lewandowski bags brace
Bayern played some brilliant football and went ahead on three minutes through Robert Lewandowski. The Poland international doubled his tally six minutes later to make it 2-0. In the second half, a hat-trick from Thomas Müller (52', 64', 78') and a strike from Thiago (61') secured an overwhelming final result. "It was a demonstration of football for much of the game. We produce an absolutely top performance against a good opponent," said coach Jupp Heynckes in praising his team.
