In Bundesliga’s Matchday 27 Bayern Munich got back at the Allianz Arena after a long time. However, with the game against Eintracht Frankfurt behind closed doors as the world’s ‘new normal’.
Despite going through slight second-half suffocation, the Bavarians did their homework in a 5-2 win. Leon Goretzka, Thomas Muller, Robert Lewandowski, Alphonso Davies, and a Martin Hinteregger own goal scored for Bayern Munich, as Hinteregger himself, ironically, scored twice for the visitors.
The Bavarians dominated the 1st half, with 64% of possession and the deadlock was broken in the 17th minute, through Germany International Leon Goretzka. Later in the first half, Davies got the ball and assisted Thomas Muller, who doubled the scoring with 41 on the clock.
After the break, Lewandowski received a pass from Kingsley Coman and made it three with one minute into the second half.
At this point, it looked like the game was already won for Bayern, but Hinteregger stepped up and started his almost heroic performance at the Allianz Arena.
On 52, defender Hinteregger scored the first goal from the visitors, and three minutes later, he diminished the gap to one goal. It was his 8th goal in this 2019-20 Bundesliga season.
Bayern got stunned by Hinteregger’s quick goals but the hosts woke up and scored the fourth through Davies with 61 on the clock.
Despite the Canadian player goal, the busy second half kept on and Frankfurt’s Hinteregger scored his third goal in the match, but unfortunately for him, it was a 79th-minuted own goal and sealed Bayern’s 5-2 win.
Following the good win, Bayern Munich retains the top of the Bundesliga, four points clear Borussia Dortmund. Meanwhile, Frankfurt ends the Matchday with 28 points, close to the playoff zone, in 13th place in the German League table.
