On Saturday, Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski topped the Bundesliga table with a 4-0 win over Union Berlin. Bayern Munich is six points ahead of the Bundesliga after scoring twice in a 4-0 win over Union Berlin in round 27. Robert Lewandowski scored two goals in the game to break the 30-goal mark this season.
Saturday’s 4-0 win brought Bayern Munich closer to their tenth consecutive title on the day that Bayern overtook Werder Bremen as the team that played the most games in the Bundesliga with 1,935 appearances. Although Bayern did not lose any of their previous five games against Union Berlin, hopes of Julian Nagelsmann returning to victory on Saturday was not guaranteed. He failed to beat Union Berlin in two of his last three games.
Bayern Munich has won only three of their last five top-flight matches, while the Irons have won only one of their previous league games. Last weekend, Robert Lewandowski’s 29th top-flight goal overturned Hoffenheims’ first goal against Christoph Baumgartner. It regained a point, but that put Bayern’s side only four points behind Borussia Dortmund. But a draw for Borussia Dortmund this weekend and a win for Lewandowski’s Bayern Munich extended the gap to six points.
Chasing their tenth league title and continuing Bayern Munich’s winning streak, Bayern took the lead in the 16th minute when Union Berlin goalkeeper Andreas Luthe was surprised by a Kingsley Coman’s strike from outside the box. Kingsley Coman shot with a right foot from outside the penalty area into the upper right corner.
Nagelsmann fielded Upamecano, Nianzou and Stanisic, and Lucas Hernandez in a four-person formation and kept Union at bay despite missing key defenders. Consecutive draws have raised Borussia Dortmund’s hopes of a genuine title challenge. Still, Saturday’s 4-0 win meant Bayern Munich avoided three Bundesliga games without a victory for the first time since November 2018 and gave them six points from their rivals Borussia Dortmund. Joshua Kimmich was notorious for being tough on his teams’ performances. Even Joshua Kimmich was also happy to win.
As we enter the last phase of the season, the game’s difficulty level will increase, and the intensity will also be high. Bayern Munich has also qualified for the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League, where they are drawn against the Spanish side Villarreal, who defeated the Italian giants Juventus in their backyard. Bayern Munich will have to win these matches and adjust the squad that suffers injuries.
After the break, Bayern Munich will play the 15th placed Augsburg in their next league match. Overcoming Augsburg will not be a tough ask, but they can prepare for the following game, the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
