German Cup: Leverkusen Clinch First Ever Domestic Double

By Chimezie Nebolisa

Bundesliga champions Bayer Leverkusen battled past second division Kaiserslautern 1-0 on Saturday to win the German Cup and secure the club's first ever domestic double.

Leverkusen missed out on a treble after losing 3-0 to Atalanta in the Europa League final on Wednesday in their first defeat of the season after a European record 51-game unbeaten run.

This was Leverkusen's second German Cup win after their maiden victory back in 1993.
