Bundesliga: Bayern poker in Leverkusen, Leipzig even-mockery – La Gazzetta dello Sport


The leaders went 4-2 at BayArena and temporarily went to +10 on Borussia Dortmund, now engaged with Hertha. Nagelsmann’s team, in ten, suffer the 1-1 of Paderborn in full recovery

Another big step towards the title. Bayern Munich is rampant at the home of Bayer Leverkusen (4-2) and goes to +10 from Borussia Dortmund which will host Hertha Berlin at 18.30. Regardless of today’s result, the Bavarians could win the championship (the eighth in a row) already next Saturday, when they host the Moenchengladbach. The goals of Coman (at 27 ‘), Goretzka (42’), Gnabry (45 ‘) and Lewandowski (66’) were decisive. The Pole thus rises to 30 goals in the championship and, in the classification of the Scarpa d’oro, has three markings ahead of Lazio Ciro Immobile. Useless, in the 10th minute, the goals of Alario, who had brought Leverkusen ahead, and of the young Wirtz (in the 89th minute), born in 2003, at the first goal in the Bundesliga.

The race

Flick again chooses the 4-2-3-1 with Coman and Gnabry wide and Müller behind Lewandowski. The Leverkusen, without Havertz, however, starts strong and manages to put the Bavarians in difficulty, looking a bit distracted: following a lateral foul Alario finds himself only against Neuer, taking advantage of a nice pass by Baumgartlinger. The Argentine does not get caught up in the emotion and scores the 1-0. Once at a disadvantage, however, the Flick team raised the pace, making it difficult for the opponents. Leverkusen keeps the defense oddly high, and tries to send the Bavarians offside, a strategy that succeeds until the 27th minute: Goretzka steals the ball in midfield and serves Coman. The former Juventus player is good at beating Hradecky with a nice shot on the far post. At 42 ‘Bayern doubles: the Bavarians start on the counterattack after a corner of Leverkusen, they fail to concretize, but when the defense of the hosts seems deployed Goretzka finds the corner with a sudden shot from the edge of the area. Bosz’s team does not even have time to react, which comes 3-1: at 44 ‘Gnabry devours the goal, but, a few seconds later, on Kimmich’s assist, he passes Hradecky with a soft lob. In the second half, Bayern limited themselves to managing the lead, definitively ending the game in the 66th minute with Lewandowski: the Pole, who had not been involved in the game until then, took advantage of Müller’s assist by throwing the ball into the goal from close range. The Leverkusen tries to limit the damage (the Bayer is fifth on equal points with the fourth Moenchengladbach, but is under by goal difference …) and does nothing to keep the pace high. Indeed, in the 89th minute the 2-4 of Wirtz arrives, who, served by Paulinho, avoids Hernandez and electrocutes Neuer kicking at the second post. A useless goal, but still significant and the first of a boy of which we speak very well. Little changes at Bayern, which is now launched towards the title, with Flick that as an interim coach now aims to win the triple.

The others

Match full of goals between Dusseldorf and Hoffenheim, finished on 2-2. Heavy victory of Mainz, who takes 3 points in the home of Frankfurt (2-0). Leipzig disappoint that despite having taken the lead with Schick’s goal, does not go beyond the 1-1 against Paderborn, which is equal to 92 ‘. Nagelsmann’s team, currently third, however, remained in 10 from 43 ‘for the expulsion of Upamecano. The fifth place is however only 3 points away …
