The treble winners had a bit of a busy day at the office today.
Bayern Munich had to break the sweat in scrapping a 3-3 draw against the bottom dwellers Arminia, as they scored two goals in the second half.
The Bavarians, who won the Club World Cup last week, might have thought it would be another ordinary matchday in Bundesliga but Arminia, who are placed in the bottom half of the table, had other ideas.
The visitors took a shock lead inside the opening ten minutes through Michel Vlap and if that was not enough for a surprise, Bayern were trailing 2-0 at half-time.
Bayern, as expected, pushed for the comeback from the very off in the second half and as a result, they got their first for the night through Robert Lewandowski. The Polish striker netted his 25th goal with no significant competition for him in Bundesliga.
However, Arminia restored their two-goal cushion the next minute, thus putting more on the defending champions.
Hansi Flick showed his tactical prowess once again to help Bayern get back on level terms as Corentin Tolisso and Alphonso Davies found the scoresheet in the space of less than 15 minutes.
The draw has now cut Bayern’s lead to five points at the top of the table with RB Leipzig right behind their trail.
The Bavarians are set to take on Frankfurt this weekend before their Champions League encounter against Lazio.
