Bayern Munich moved another step towards clinching their eighth consecutive Bundesliga title with a 4-2 victory over Bayer Leverkusen.
Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich survived their tricky trip to Leverkusen this afternoon, noting a 4-2 win to go 10 points clear on the top of the table.
The game didn’t start well for the Bavarians giants though, as Lucas Alario put the hosts in front in the 10th minute. However, Leverkusen’s lead lasted only 17 minutes, as Kingsley Coman equalized for the visitors on the assist of Leon Goretzka.
Goretzka turned the game around netting one himself in the 42nd, while Serge Gnabry secured a 3-1 lead on the break for Hansi Flick’s side in the final moments of the first half.
The second half was much calmer, with Robert Lewadowski adding his 30th goal of the season to make it 4-1 at the Bay Arena.
