Bayern Munich beat Augsburg with a single Lewandowski goal

Another Robert Lewandowski goal gave Bayern victory, although the German champions played a disastrous second half. It was only the third time this season that Manuel Neuer has kept a clean sheet.

In the first half the game of the German champions looked very good, with successive attacks they tried to force the goal of Gikiewicz, who showed off several very good interventions, mainly after Gnabry’s shots. Lewandowski also tried, his fourth shot bounced off the post though. 

By the break, Hansi Flick could not complain about the style and commitment of his players, but about their effectiveness. They were unable to increase the lead, which could have ended very badly for them after the break.

They looked weaker and weaker with every minute, in the 67th minute they lost their most dangerous player – Lewandowski came off with a grimace of pain on his face (for now it is not known if it is an injury), and in the 75th minute Benjamin Pavard played the ball with his hand and the referee dictated a penalty kick.

Only this time Alfred Finnbogason could not stand the test of nerves as well as the Polish striker and hit the post. And he seemed to be a specialist in taking penalties, too – he took his 31st and only missed his third.

Bayern played very poorly and Heiko Herrlich’s players did not give up, with Fredrik Jensen hitting the ball over Manuel Neuer’s goal after a minute. However, Bayern’s weakness in the second half was not reflected in the result – that’s how you know champions can win even when playing poorly.

Augsburg lost, but this time Rafal Gikiewicz will certainly not criticize his teammates, as after the last game against Werder (0:2). A few days ago, the Polish goalkeeper was loudly annoyed that his team’s players were coming down with smiles on their faces after the defeat.

On Wednesday, he might have felt very differently, because although they lost points again, they showed after the break that they are capable of facing the German champions.
