Bayern takes the Cup too

No real suprise, but despite a strong performance from Stuttgart, Bayern München took the DFB-Pokal final as well, ending up with the Bundesliga, Cup and Champions League. I think they ended up with the worthless Liga-Pokal as well. That pretty much wraps up the most dominant season ever for German club football.

The underdogs started off well, but missed some good scoring opportunities. A somewhat dodgy penalty gave Nayern the lead, and then ex-Stuttgarter Mario Gomez put in a double that seemed to turn things to a rout. However VfB stormed back to make things close, but I don;t think anyone expected Bayern to get into too much trouble.
