Bayern destroys Leverkusen and is a lonely leader

Bayern delivered a coup of authority by endorsing the leadership of the Bundesliga with a 1-5 win against Bayer Leverkusen, who came to the game tied on points with the Bavarians and as second classified.

With doublets by Robert Lewandowski and Serge Gnabry and a goal by Thomas Müller, Bayern had left the game sentenced before the break. In the second half Patrick Schik discounted for Leverkusen, at 55.

In minute 4, Lewandowski opened the scoring by kicking off a cross by Dayot Upamecano from the right of the area, after a free-kick by Joshua Kimmich.

Then they had left for just over half an hour before Leverkusen was completely buried. Both teams defended high, Leverkusen had more possession in that phase but when Bayern attacked it was more dangerous.

A shot from Leroy Sané’s post on 19 was like the announcement of what was to come. In the 22nd, Leon Goretzka was also close, with a shot from a good position.

Leverkusen gave too many spaces when Bayern exceeded the first line of pressure and that ended up favoring the debacle.

In the 29th Lewandowski repeated, with a shot from the center of the area after a combination between Alphonso Davies and Kimmich. At 34, on a corner kick, Thomas Müller scored the third.

He came in fourth a few seconds later, at 35, through Serge Gnabry, to Müller’s center, after Leverkusen lost the ball after the kickoff. And in 37 Gnabry scored again, behind a wall with Müller.
