Lewandowski and Mueller take Munich to crush Union Berlin

Forward Thomas Mueller led Bayern Munich to crush Union Berlin 5-2 in the German League matchweek ten at An der Alsten Foersterei on Saturday (10/30). Players closely associated with the Raumdeuter nickname recorded three assists and one goal for Bayern’s victory, marked by a brace from Robert Lewandowski and one goal each from Leroy Sane and Kingsley Coman.

Meanwhile, the hosts, who came under more pressure throughout the game, were only able to respond twice through Niko Giesselmann and Julian Ryerson. The victory cemented Julian Nagelsmann’s side at the top of the German League standings with 25 points, while Union slipped to sixth, failing to add to the collection of 16 points.

Against Union, who have a 21-game losing streak at home, Bayern immediately stepped up and took the lead thanks to Lewandowski’s 15th-minute penalty, after Paul Jaeckel deliberately blocked Sane’s shot with his arm. Bayern’s advantage was successfully doubled by Lewandowski who scored his second goal eight minutes later thanks to a free kick situation, ending Mueller’s cross in the upper right corner of the goal.

Sane widened Bayern’s lead to 3-0 in the 34th minute when he finished the cross from Josip Stanisic, whom Mueller had previously missed. Two minutes before the break, Union’s efforts to score a comeback finally paid off when Giesselmann met Genki Haraguchi’s cross with a measured volley.

In the 44th minute, Union felt they had cut him down to 2-3 after Sheraldo Becker cheated on goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, but his goal was immediately disallowed as the linesman raised the offside flag. and the score was 3-1 for Bayern until Bayern scored their fourth goal in the 60th minute when Coman broke through from the right after recovering Mueller’s cross before beating goalkeeper Andreas Luthe with a precise narrow angle finish.

Five minutes later Union scored again thanks to a charming individual effort from Kevin Behrens who crossed from the left before shooting in a nice out that was only easily completed by Ryerson. Union two, Bayern four. The visitors restored another three-goal margin in the 79th minute after Mueller, who had already had three assists, completed the display with a curling shot that gave Luthe no chance of reaching the ball.

Serge Gnabry could have scored Bayern’s sixth goal two minutes from normal dispersion but he chose to pass the ball to Joshua Kimmich who turned him into a center, unfortunately Lewandowski failed to reach the ball and the score of 5-2 lasted until the final whistle.

Bayern will then host Freiburg at the Allianz Arena on Saturday (6/11) next week, four days after facing Benfica for the Champions League clash at the same venue. While the Union will go to the headquarters of FC Cologne on Sunday (7/11), three days after playing in the Europa League against Feyenoord. (OL-8)
