Leverkusen was not unkind to the machine from the south of the country, but spilling with opportunities breaks sour. Substitute Volland kicked the ball.
Not much later, Hradecky also made a mistake. Lewandowski thanked the goalkeeper for the 3-0.
The final was played. Bender headed in the deserved goal, but Lewandowski was still looking forward to a bisnummer. The goalkeeper Hradecky knocked with a lob a second time.
Havertz’s (4-2) added time penalty hit was a patch on the wound. The young attacker did not celebrate his goal.
