DFB Pokal: Bayer Leverkusen 2-6 Bayern Munich

0 227

Thomas Muller scored a hat-trick as Bayern Munich thrashed Bayer Leverkusen to book their place in the German Cup final in Berlin.

Heiko Herrlich’s men initially produced a good response to falling two goals down early on, but Bayern ultimately blew Leverkusen away, with Muller scoring a hat-trick in a remarkably comfortable win at the BayArena.

Muller was ruthless in the second half and finished off his hat-trick with a neat pirouetting touch to make it six.

Alcantara topped off a wonderful individual performance with a goal of his own, while Leon Bailey came on as a second-half substitute for Leverkusen and scored a wonderful, curling free-kick.

Muller got himself another in the 64th minute and the Bayern’s captain completed his treble to book a final spot in ominous style.

Bayern, who are on course for a treble this season, will play either Schalke or Eintracht Frankfurt in the final at the Olympiastadion on 19 May.
