Hans Flick and Bayern Munich are one step closer to winning the Bundesliga! The Bavarians hosted Fortuna Dusseldorf at the Allianz Arena and beat them 5-0. The game had goals from Benjamin Pavard, Robert Lewandowski, Davies, and even an own goal. The Bavarian giants have now 85 goals scored in 29 Bundesliga games.
On the way to their eighth consecutive title in the Bundesliga, Bayern grabbed a somehow easy win over Dusseldorf. The 5-0 rout began to be built with 16 on the clock, as Dusseldorf’s Zanka had a hard time with a Benjamin Pavard cross and ended up scoring an own goal.
Although Pavard had his goal ‘stolen’ by unlucky Zanka, the French right-back was competent enough to go on and score the second himself in a header on 29 minutes.
Still, in the first half, wingman Thomas Muller assisted top scorer Lewandowski, who fired home on the verge of the break. 3-0 Bayern Munich in the first half.
Up in the second half, Dusseldorf had the mission of trying not to be humiliated at the empty Allianz Arena. However, Lewandowski had other plans as he doubled his own tally in the game on 50 minutes.
With his two goals scored in the match, the Poleman got to 47 goals in 37 season games. It means that Lewandowski is absolutely on fire, and in the best moment of his entire career.
Canadian Davies wrapped the game up two minutes later and sealed the 5-0 win for the Bavarian club, who seems to be invincible when it comes to winning the Bundesliga.
With the victory, Hans Flick is the first Bayern coach who has won 22 of his first 25 games. Thus, he surpasses the Pep Guardiola mark, which had 21 victories in 25.
Bayern has a seven-point advantage over 2nd place Borussia Dortmund and is getting closer and closer to the German title. While the Bavarian club lives its moments of glory, Dusseldorf continues in the relegation playoffs. The team is in the 16th position of the table, with only 27 points.
