Bayern Munich vs. VfB Stuttgart, 2013 DFB Pokal Final: Gomez doubles Bayern's lead minutes into second half

Bayern Munich wasted absolutely no time before scoring as the second half got under way. Just minutes after the kickoff, Mario Gomez knocked in low cross from Philipp Lahm to give the Bavarians a 2-0 lead over VfB Stuttgart. The goal is Gomez's first since the beginning of May.

While he may not have scored any goals this season, the assist is Lahm's 18th of the season in all competitions. The figure is just an astronomical figure for a fullback, and it just goes to show you how high and hard Bayern press and just how often Lahm gets forward and adds into the attack.

There's now a two goal advantage for Bayern and just forty minutes separates them from destiny. Its hard to see a way back for Stuttgart now, and it's far more likely that Bayern will increase their lead rather than lose it. The players and supporters have their fingertips on the Pokal now.
