Goals from Kingsley Coman, Leon Goretzka, Serge Gnabry and Robert Lewandowski gave Bayern Munich a 2-4 win at Leverkusen in the Bundesliga. Lucas Alario gave the hosts the lead at the BayArena while Florian Wirtz bagged a late consolation.
Bayern Munich took another step towards winning the Bundesliga for the eighth time in a row after a comfortable 2-4 victory at Leverkusen. A slow start was punished by Lucas Alario inside ten minutes, but then Bayern hit back with four goals.
The third, which came just before half-time, all but ended the match as a contest before 17-year-old Wirtz added respectability to the scoreline. Bayern fully deserved the win against their opponents.
Leverkusen hit the front in the 10th minute after a Leverkusen throw-in was half-cleared to Baumgartlinger. He’s then sent a lovely chipped pass for Alario who beat Manuel Neuer to his near post. The flag went up for offside, but the VAR proved that Boateng’s trailing foot was playing the Argentine on.
That spurred Hansi Flick’s men into action and despite Bayern having few chances, Leverkusen was gradually getting pinned back inside their own penalty area. The breakthrough came in the 27th minute when Diaby’s defensive error was penalised. Goretzka sent a long pass for Coman, who was in acres of space and he made no mistake in front of Hradecky.
Despite Diaby threatening for the home team with an effort at Neuer and some good runs, the champions were on top. Lewandowski had an effort, but could not direct it goalwards and then three minutes before the interval, Goretzka put Bayern in front. Leverkusen saw a corner cleared and they were taken apart on the counter. The move ended with Muller flicking the ball to Goretzka who shot past the goalie to his left.
