2019/2020 Bundesliga

2 – 1:- Pavard (13′) ,Lewandowski (53′) ,S. Andersson (58′ Penalty Missed) ,S. Polter (86′ PEN)

Bayern Munich moved top of the Bundesliga as record-setting Robert Lewandowski helped them to a 2-1 win over Union Berlin at Allianz Arena.

The prolific Lewandowski moved into the Bundesliga record books as he helped Bayern to a 2-1 victory over Union Berlin.

Having matched Aubameyang’s record of scoring in the opening eight Bundesliga matches of a season when he found the target against Augsburg, Lewandowski became the first player to net in the first nine games of a campaign when he grabbed Bayern’s second seven minutes into the second half.

It was a typically composed finish from Lewandowski, who up until that point had been well shackled by Union either side of Pavard’s superb strike giving Bayern the lead.

GOAL! Bayern 1-0 Union Berlin (Pavard)

It’s Pavard with a powerful strike from outside the area! It all comes from a poorly defended Kimmich set piece on the right. Union keeper Gikiewicz comes off his line to punch it clear, but only as far as Pavard at the edge of the box and he’s completely unopposed as he thunders it in to make it 1-0 Bayern.

Yellow Card! Andrich booked,

CLOSE! Muller’s long shot saved,

MISS! Coutinho’s shot saved,

CHANCE! Coman’s shot wide out,

GOAL! Bayern 2-0 Union Berlin (Lewandowski),

It was only a matter of time before Bayern scored again and it’s Lewandowski to double their lead. He’s almost crowded out as he bears down on goal, but a fortunte deflection brings the ball back into his path as he dribbles his way past and he tucks a right-footed shot away low into the bottom-right corner.

Penalty Missed! (Andersson)

Andersson runs up, but Neuer reads him perfectly and gets down low to his left to deny him from the penalty spot! Still 2-0 Bayern!

NICE TRY! Gnabry’s shot saved

OFFSIDE! Lewandowski’s goal disallowed

Penalty Goal! Bayern 2-1 Union Berlin (Polter)

Union pull one back! Second time lucky from the spot as Polter buries his penalty and sends Neuer the wrong way!
