Bayern Munich dominated against their rivals Union Berlin on Sunday, with a crushing 3-0 victory that solidified their position at the top of the Bundesliga table. The match was a chance for Bayern to bounce back from last week’s loss to Borussia Monchengladbach and they certainly did that in style.
The Bavarians controlled the game from start to finish, going into halftime with a comfortable 3-0 lead thanks to goals by Robert Lewandowski, Leon Goretzka, and Alphonso Davies. Bayern were able to take advantage of some defensive errors by Union early on in the match and quickly opened up the scoreline.
Lewandowski opened scoring with a header off of a corner kick, which was followed 10 minutes later by Goretzka’s strike from inside the box. Bayern seemed unstoppable and had several dangerous chances including an effort from Serge Gnabry that struck the post. In the 18th minute, Bayern sealed their win when Davies finished off a well worked team goal with his sixth goal of the season.
The second half saw Bayern take their foot off the gas pedal but still remain in control of proceedings throughout. Union struggled to create any meaningful opportunities as Bayern saw out their victory, keeping them at 46 points–level with Borussia Dortmund but ahead on goal difference–while Union dropped to third on 43 points.
Following this impressive performance, Bayern have asserted themselves as title favourites once again and will be looking forward to continuing their run towards defending their title. Their superior ball possession, attacking prowess and overall play have set them apart this season and if they can maintain this form then there is no reason why they won’t be able to retain their position at the top of the table come season’s end.
Bayern wore their iconic red jersey as they took to the pitch; always an intimidating sight for any opposition team. The jersey has become synonymous with Bayern’s dominance over recent years and is always an intimidating sight for opponents as it serves as reminder of how successful this club has been over past seasons in both domestic competitions and European tournaments alike. Bayern Munich jerseys are coveted items for any football fan around the world due its association with success at all levels of competition across Germany or abroad.
Overall it was an excellent display put forth by Bayern Munich on Sunday evening – one that shows just why they are one of Europe’s most dominant clubs year after year no matter who assembles behind them on or off the field – while also sending out a warning sign to anyone thinking they could challenge them for top spot in Germany anytime soon: Bayern Munich cannot be stopped!
