Bayern Munich defeated Borussia Dortmund 4-3 on penalties in the German Cup final on Saturday night to seal its 11th domestic double and give coach Pep Guardiola a winning send-off.
Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer saved Sven Bender's spot kick and Sokratis Papastathopoulos missed the next for Dortmund.
Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Buerki saved Joshua Kimmich's penalty but Thomas Mueller kept Bayern in control, and Douglas Costa scored the decisive spot kick.
It's Bayern's 18th German Cup win and the club's third in four seasons.
Guardiola, who is leaving after three years in Munich to join Manchester City, also won the trophy in his first season in charge, in 2014.
"The three years with the players and the club were outstanding," said Guardiola, who led Bayern to the Bundesliga crown in each season. "I'll miss my players. It was a great experience and a lot of fun."
Dortmund counterpart Thomas Tuchel said he would miss the Spanish coach. "It's like many things that you only notice when they're gone what an effect they had," Tuchel said.
Dortmund, who last won the cup in 2012, have lost three straight finals.
