Bayern Munich is pretty near its 30th Bundesliga title following today’s win.
Bayern Trashes Fortuna With Five Easy Ones
The guests from Dusseldorf didn’t manage to be competitive, not once during the entire 90 minutes today. Bayern was dominating the whole time, and there is an impression that the final result could have been even bigger.
In the end, it was 5-0 for the Bavarians who now have a 10-point lead over Borussia Dortmund, with one game more played. Having in mind that there are six more rounds until the end of the championship, it is pretty obvious that the reigning champions are going to defend the crown and win their 8th straight title.
The first goal came after 15 minutes, with Mathias Jorgensen placing the ball into his own net following chaos in the box. With one minute before half an hour mark, Benjamin Pavard doubled the lead, and Robert Lewandowski scored his first in the match two minutes before the halftime.
Five minutes since the start of the second part of this game, the Polish goal-machine netted for the second time, and two minutes afterward, in the 52nd, Alphonso Davies used one sloppy mistake of Fortuna’s defense to set the final score.
Even though we saw several more chances (from the hosts predominantly), this was the result in the end. Fortuna is still one point away from the place which provides survival in the league, but also has two points more than Werder who is yet to play its game tomorrow.
Eintracht Finally Wins, Schalke Losses Again
After five games in a row without a win, the Eagles were better than Wolfsburg, 1-2. It is something which wasn’t expected at all, especially after Werder’s last week’s performance in Leverkusen once they rolled over Bayer. Daichi Kamada scored a game-winning goal with five minutes before the end, bringing three extremely important points to the guests. They now have 32, and are five points away from the relegation zone. Wolfsburg is still sixth, but that is mostly because of the poor results of his opponents.
Schalke lost once again, this time against Werder at home, 0-1, and it seems that the Miners are in free fall. It appears that the team from Gelsenkirchen most definitely looks like the worst team in the league since the restart. On the other side, this win was massive for Werder, who is trying to stay alive in the relegation battle, and these three points could be a major boost for one of the biggest teams in the country.
Hertha Berlin continued with excellent results, and they defeated Augsburg with 2-0 at home today. They are now four points behind Wolfsburg in the sixth place and are serious in their intention to come out on the international stage. Meanwhile, Augsburg’s two defeats in a row caused them to slip down and are now just four points from the red line.
Three more matches are on the menu this weekend. Borussia Monchengladbach awaits Union Berlin, while Paderborn faces Borussia Dortmund at home. On Monday night, we have RB Leipzig against Koln.
