Postby FCBayernNews » Sat May 21, 2016 11:20 pm

FC Bayern are the 2016 double winners! The German champions crowned the season with a victory in the DFB Cup final against Borussia Dortmund, handing head coach Pep Guardiola the farewell match he always wanted. The 4-3 victory on penalties yielded some remarkable stats and records:

1 - Only one previous cup final has finished goalless after 120 minutes, the 1992 final between Hannover and Mönchengladbach.

2 - The Bavarians have won the DFB Cup every other season this century, sealing eight of a possible 16 triumphs.

4 - The reigning champions and the Bundesliga runners-up faced off for the fourth time in a cup final, with the champions prevailing every single time.

5 - 73 editions of the cup final have yielded only five penalty shootouts, most recently in 1999, when Bremen won 6-5 against Bayern.

7 - Pep Guardiola concluded his three years at Bayern with his seventh trophy.

9 - FC Bayern have won nine of their last ten cup finals.

11 - The Munich men wrapped up their 11th double. FCB sealed both the German championship and the DFB Cup for the third time in four years.

18 - FC Bayern won the cup for the 18th time. No other team boasts more than six triumphs in the competition.

23 - Bayern are now unbeaten in 23 cup ties, equalling their own record set from 1997 to 2002.

100 - Robert Lewandowski proved a cool customer when he put away his penalty, crowning his 100th appearance for Bayern with his 67th goal.
