A Robert Lewandowski double helps do the business once more, as Bayern Munich fight back from a half-time deficit to avoid a Bundesliga upset against Greuther Furth.
The champions strengthen their hand at the summit once more – at full-time at Allianz Arena, it finishes Bayern Munich 4-1 Greuther Furth.
BAYERN MUNICH (4-1-4-1): Sven Ulreich;
Benjamin Pavard, Dayot Upamecano, Lucas Hernandez, Omar Richards;
Marcel Sabitzer, Thomas Muller, Corentin Tolisso, Leroy Sane;
GREUTHER FURTH (4-1-2-1-2): Andreas Linde;
Marco Meyerhofer, Sebastian Griesbeck, Nick Viergever, Gian-Luca Itter;
Paul Seguin, Timothy Tillman;
Jamie Leweling, Branimir Hrgota.
1-0. The bottom of the table trumps the top with the help of a wicked deflection! Hrgota steers the free-kick in, sees it take a massive hit off the wall, and it loops into the far-top corner.
1-1. Talk about out of the gates! A minute has not passed, and the Poland star puts the hosts on equal footing. Choupo-Moting cuts back at the right post, and the forward wrestle home on the other side.
2-1. It’s a disaster for Sebastian Griesbeck as the Furth man turns a square cross past his goalkeeper – an absolute heartbreaker.
3-1. Indeed, that is game, set and match to the hosts now, as their star man heads home from a reverse nudge back across the box on the heels of a corner.
4-1. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting gets himself on the scoreboard to finish this one off, firingGnabry’ss square ball home at close range.
So, what’s next?
However, Julian Nagelsmann will be delighted with the response shown by his side. After two underwhelming results.
Bayern needed something to fire their engines once more, and that second half very much ticked the box.
Spare a thought for Stefan Leitl and company – Furth did nothing to disgrace themselves, particularly across a surprisingly sedate first half.
But their hosts’ sheer brute force power has overwhelmed them in the end, and they remain rooted to the foot of the table.
Next time out, it’s a trip to Eintracht Frankfurt for Bayern, while Furth battles it out with Koln.
