Borussia Dortmund celebrate the first league and cup double in their history
Borussia Dortmund completed their first ever league and cup double with an emphatic 5-2 victory over Bayern Munich in the DFB-Pokal final.
Robert Lewandowski was the hero at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin, hitting a hat-trick as Jurgen Klopp's men underlined their superiority over Bayern this season.
Jupp Heynckes' side must now focus their attention on next weekend's UEFA Champions League final against Chelsea.
And although world-class wide-men Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery were on target for Bayern, the Bavarians played as though they already one eye on the huge European tie that awaits them.
They certainly started the slower with Dortmund taking the lead after just three minutes through Japan midfielder Shinji Kagawa.
The 23-year-old is believed to be a target for Manchester United in the summer and if this was to be his final game for BVB he signed off in style, converting Jakub Blaszczykowski's inviting cross.
Bayern did regroup to level with Robben converting a penalty after Roman Weidenfeller brought Mario Gomez down inside the area.
But Dortmund took the lead with a penalty of their own before the break when Mats Hummels beat Manuel Neuer from the spot following Jerome Boateng's trip on Blaszczykowski.
From that point on it was the Lewandowski show as he converted with two slick finishes either side of half-time to put Dortmund 4-1 up and start the party in the German capital.
Bayern refused to give up, pulling a goal back through Ribery with a quarter of an hour to go, before Lewandowski had the final word, completing his hat-trick after a mistake from Neuer.
As Dortmund celebrated, the Bayern players contemplated the need to defeat Chelsea next Saturday in order to avoid going without a trophy for a second successive season.
