- Second win in the second game under Flick
- Bayern moves past BVB in the table
- Lewandowski is the first player in eleven Bundesliga games in a row
Bayern have also won the second game under new coach Hansi Flick and celebrated on Saturday night a strong 4-0 (1-0) victory over Borussia Dortmund. By the three points in the Bundesliga classic, the Munich left the BVB in the table behind and sat down so firmly in the top flight of the Bundesliga: At least until Sunday is the gap to leaders Borussia MOnchengladbach only one point.
Lewandowski sets new fabulous record
Flick saw no reason to change after the 2-0 win against Piraeus and sent the same starter as during the week Champions League on the field. As on Wednesday, the FCB was initially striving for defensive stability, which is why in the initial phase on both sides hardly came to scoring scenes. The home side took advantage of their first opportunity, however, after the BVB defensive first cleared a cross from Serge Gnabry, Benjamin Pavard served the ball with a pinpoint hit on the head by Lewandowski (17), making it the first player in Bundesliga history to eleven Game days in a row met in the mesh.
Bayern kept their footing: Kingsley Coman (26 ') had a 2-0 win in the first half of the first half, but the Frenchman's win was a bit too weak and Mats Hummels was able to clear him in front of the line. At the same minute, Gnabry scored with an attempt at Roman Burki in the BVB box. By contrast, there were hardly any offensive actions by the visitors – except for a dangerous free-kick from substitute Raphael Guerreiro (44th), Dortmund remained in front of the break without scoring a goal.
This did not change anything after the break: Joshua Kimmich sent Thomas Muller with a great pass on the journey, which put across the middle, where ultimately Gnabry (48.) increased to 2: 0. Referee Felix Zwayer initially decided on offside, but gave the hit after study of the video evidence recognition. Shortly thereafter, Gnabry (52.) narrowly missed the BVB case after cross of Alphonso Davies.
It remained at the game on goal: Coman put through in the 59th minute on Lewandowski, but the Pole put the ball from about eleven meters from the goal. Only in the middle of the second half did Borussia score their first and only goal by Joker Paco Alcacer (69 ') – but the Spaniard missed the box from close range. That did not impress Bayern. In the 75th minute was Muller Lewandowski, who marked the third FCB goal with his second goal. Only a short time later, Hummels (80th) drew the final goal into his own goal.
