Freshly eliminated from the Champions League by PSG, Bayern reacted well this Saturday by winning in Wolfsburg (3-2) during the 29th day of the Bundesliga. The Munich, who saw Lucas Hernandez out on injury late in the game, fly to the title.
It was the next game for Bayern Munich. Four days after being ejected from the Champions League by PSG, the Bavarians spent their nerves on Wolfsburg (3-2), this Saturday, on the occasion of the 29th day of the Bundesliga. This success allows them to take one step closer to a ninth consecutive German championship title. Five days from the end of the season, they are seven points ahead of their runner-up, RB Leipzig, unable to dominate Hoffenheim (0-0) on Friday.
Choupo-Moting still scorer, Hernandez left with injury
Always diminished by numerous absences (Robert Lewandowski, Leon Goretzka, Serge Gnabry, Corentin Tolisso, Niklas Süle or even Douglas Costa), the “Rekordmeister” first seemed to be heading for a quiet victory at the Volkswagen Arena. The score was 3-1 at the break after a brace from young German attacking midfielder Jamal Musiala (18) and a goal from Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, on the lookout for a gross hand fault by Belgian goalkeeper Koen Casteels . Already a scorer this week at the Parc des Princes, the former Parisian confirmed his good form at the time and once again showed that he could be an interesting lining for Lewandowski.
Bayern were much less serene in the second half. Returning to 3-2 thanks to Maximilian Philipp, the locals pushed to try to snatch a point. But they lacked address in the last gesture, like this strike a little too crossed from the former Montpellier Jérôme Roussillon. And Manuel Neuer, as usual, responded. Only downside for the Munich: the exit on injury, after additional time, Lucas Hernandez. Visibly hit in the left leg in a muscular duel, the world champion had to give way to Tanguy Kouassi.
Next meeting for the Hansi Flick team: the reception of Bayer Leverkusen, Tuesday (8:30 p.m.). To perhaps get even closer to the title.
