#1: Back on top


With his 90th minute chip, Lewandowski netted for the sixth time this season in the DFB Cup, finishing top scorer in the competition. That's the fifth time he's been top goalscorer at the end of a DFB Cup campaign; the first player to ever do so. 

#2: Personal record equalled

The Poland captain has scored 51 competitive goals so far this term, by far a best-mark in Europe's top five leagues. Lewandowski only boasted the same number in 2015/16.

#3: Milestone for Bayern

Bayern's third goal on Saturday was their 750th DFB Cup goal, a record in the competition.

Bayern's fourth goal against Leverkusen was his eighth in a DFB Cup final, Lewandowski extending his record (Gerd Müller and Uwe Seeler have scored four cup final goals each).

#5: Final expert

Lewandowski is the first player to score in four finals and the first to find the net in three straight cup finals. He scored against Frankfurt in 2018 and bagged a brace against Leipzig in 2019.
