Bayern Munich have taken another step in their journey to the Bundesliga title this season. Taking on Fortuna Duesseldorf in the Bundesliga on Matchday 29 at the Allianz Arena, Bayern Munich showed no intention of calming down after their win over Borussia Dortmund last week as they stormed to a 5-0 win.
Bayern Munich beat Borussia Dortmund, in what is considered to be the most heavy-weight fixture in the Bundesliga last week. Until this victory, Borussia Dortmund were in close touch with Bayern Munich on top of the Bundesliga points table. However, the win over Dortmund has pretty much clarified that Bayern Munich are on the road to their eighth consecutive Bundesliga title, a historic feat not only in the league but across Europe.
Bayern Munich are now 10 points clear of Borussia Dortmund over the top of the Bundesliga table with Dortmund having played a game less than their arch-rivals.
Bayern Munich Toyed With Fortuna Duesseldorf In The First Half
Bayern Munich absolutely thumped Duesseldorf in the first half. They gave no chance to the visitors to create an attack in the game. The hosts were applying high pressure on Duesseldorf’s goal time and again. Bayern had 70 per cent possession in the first half and took 6 shots at goal, with 3 of them being goals before the break.
The first goal of the game came in the form of an own goal when Matthias Jorgensen slipped the ball back into his own net from the shot off Benjamin Pavard. The second goal followed as Pavard thumped in a powerful header from a corner kick. The final goal before the half-time came in the form of a great team goal as Robert Lewandowski ended up being on the finisher assisted by Thomas Muller.
Bayern Munich Restart From Where They Left
Bayern showed no signs of slowing down in the second half as well and it resulted in a couple of quick goals as soon as play resumed after half-time. Robert Lewandowski earned his brace as he was assisted by Serge Gnabry in the 50th minute as they created a beautiful goal.
Bayern Munich’s rocket, Alphonso Davies, joined the party as he etched his name on the scoresheet in the 52nd minute of the game to give a 5-0 lead to the hosts. Thomas Muller came close to scoring in the 63rd minute but couldn’t finish his strike.
