Bayern wins 1st treble


Bayern Munich beat Stuttgart 3-2 to seal the club’s first treble by winning the German Cup on Saturday in Jupp Heynckes’ last game in charge. Mario Gomez (pictured, bottom) scored twice and Bayern became the first German side to win a treble of domestic league, cup and European Cup, and only the seventh team overall to achieve the feat. Bayern’s record 16th German Cup comes one week after it beat Borussia Dortmund 2-1 in London to win the Champions League and eight weeks after it breaking a host of records in claiming its 23rd Bundesliga title, leaving incoming coach Pep Guardiola with a daunting challenge to match Heynckes’ achievements this season. Elsewhere, Barcelona capped its Spanish league title by tying the La Liga record of 100 points, beating visiting Malaga 4-1. – AP
