Bayern Munich 5-0 Frankfurt: Bayern run riot after Lewandowski hat trick

Robert Lewandowski-Bayern Munich

Bayern have decimated Frankfurt at home in the weekend Bundesliga fixture.

Bayern Munich have defeated Eintracht Frankfurt 5-0 at the Allianz Arena, with Robert Lewandowski making the headlines with a hat-trick.

The Polish striker opened the account in the tenth minute, slotting in a left-footed finish through the assist from Kingsley Coman.

Lewandowski scored his second after a fine header from the set-piece of Joshua Kimmich before completing his hat-trick at the hour mark, this time a right-footed finish fetching on Douglas Costa’s through ball.

Leroy Sane announced his return with a stunning long-range effort to make it 4-0 for the home side.

Jamal Musiala, the 17-year old sensation, scored the final goal of the game while also making it his second for the season.

Frankfurt had no clue to Bayern’s dominance as they suffered their first defeat of this season.

Elsewhere, there looks no stopping for Hansi Flick and his men as they continue to wreak havoc for the opponents, their recent victim were Atletico Madrid in the Champions League earlier this week.

Lewandowski is already topping the Bundesliga charts with 10 goals this season.

However, the win was marred by the injury of Alphonso Davies, which has been later revealed as Cruciate Ligament injury on his right ankle. The Canadian left-back is set for a shorter spell on the sidelines.

Flick has reflected on the win, stating that it was good to manage the workload after the UCL fixture.

“It was an excellent defensive performance. We know that Frankfurt can be an uncomfortable team to play, they have good automatisms. But we didn’t allow much today. In addition, we are very efficient at the moment and are determined to convert our chances.”

 “The wins in the Champions League are even better when you win the following Bundesliga match. We have to manage the load control and sub players off earlier so that they don’t always have to play 90 minutes.”
