Bayern Munich remain sovereign in the German Championship. Upon returning home, the Allianz Arena, in Munich, after the restart of the tournament after the pandemic was shut down by the new coronavirus, the Bavarian team thrashed Eintracht Frankfurt 5-2, for the 27th round, and maintained the lead in the competition.
Now with 61 points, Bayern Munich preserved the distance of four for vice-leader Borussia Dortmund, who also won in the round. The two will face each other in the next round, in the most awaited duel of the competition so far. The classic, which pits the two main contenders for the title, is scheduled for this Tuesday, at 1:30 pm (Brasília time), at the Signal Iduna Park stadium, in Dortmund.
The great phase of the Munich team precedes the pandemic. The Bavarian team is undefeated in 2020 and, considering the games before the tournament was paralyzed, has not lost for 13 matches, having won 12 of them. The last setback was in December last year, when he took Borussia Mönchengladbach 2-1. Eintracht Frankfurt is in 13th place with 28 points.
In the wake of the innovations adopted by the teams to circumvent the absence of fans in the stands, a preventive measure to prevent the contagion of the covid-19, Bayern Munich entered the field this Saturday to the sound of their fans. The administration of the stadium put on the speakers the noise of the supporters in order to try to simulate an environment similar to that of a “normal” game. Before the ball rolled, a minute of silence was also respected in honor of the victims of the coronavirus in Germany.
After the opening whistle, what we saw was a lively game, dominated by the hosts for most of the match. When he accelerated, Bayern Munich, with the talent of its players, was left. He had more possession of the ball and built the scoreboard with some ease at the moment when he printed a strong pace.
Goretzka came from behind to finish the first cross and open the scoring after 17 minutes. The assistance came from Thomas Müller, who reached the 17-pass mark in the tournament and leads this statistic. But it doesn’t just serve. It also rocks the nets. It was the German striker’s second goal, scored in the 40th minute. In the move, Müller appeared in the area to complete Davies’ cross.
Robert Lewandowski, of course, also left his mark. The Pole went to the net in the first minute of the final stage, expanding his sovereignty in the competition’s artillery. He scores 27 goals and shoots more and more as the tournament’s top scorer.
After opening 3-0, the current seven-times national champion relaxed the game and came close to winning the tie. Defender Hinteregger made the first of the visitors after faltering from the rival defense and also the second, head first, in a six-minute break. The reaction was not sustained and the Bavarian team accelerated again to seal the triumph.
Canadian Ghanaian fullback Davies made the fourth on 15 minutes and assured the hosts of the match. At 28, Hinteregger established himself as the top scorer of the match. This time, however, he scored against after fumbling when trying to get the ball out of the area, sacramentando the Bavarian team’s triumph.
