Magic Müller, Lewy scores a stunning volley – Best of FC Bayern training
Check out the best moments from FC Bayern’s training sessions in March 2022.
Serge Gnabry’s stunning strike, a clinical Robert Lewandowski finish and Jamal Musiala’s third ensured Bayern Munich cruised to a tenth straight Bundesliga title by easing past archrivals Borussia Dortmund 3-1 at the Allianz Arena.
BVB trailed Bayern by nine points and a goal difference of 27 before Der Klassiker, and Die Roten’s lead at the top of the table is now unassailable after a match in which they rarely looked troubled after Gnabry’s 15th-minute opener.
The winger controlled the ball with his knee on the edge of the penalty area following a Joshua Kimmich corner, then sent a glorious volley beyond Marwin Hitz’s dive to send Bayern on their way in front of their ecstatic home fans.
Jude Bellingham and Erling Haaland struggled to find time on the ball during a quiet first half for Dortmund’s dangermen, although the 18-goal Norway sensation spurned an excellent chance shortly before the half-hour mark, dragging a low shot wide after breaking free in front of goal.
That uncharacteristic profligacy was punished alongside carelessness in possession from Dortmund. With 34 minutes gone, Bayern pounced and Thomas Muller located Lewandowski with a low pass across the penalty area, affording the Bundesliga top scorer the chance to make it 23 goals in 16 appearances against his former club.
Dortmund urgently needed the momentum to change, and it did after the break. A clumsy challenge by Kimmich on Marco Reus allowed Emre Can to convert from the penalty spot, heralding a sustained spell of pressure from the visitors for the first time.
Musiala replaced Gnabry — the leading German scorer in the Bundesliga — soon afterwards, and the substitute sealed the win seven minutes from time, slotting beyond Hitz, who also produced an excellent late save to deny Lewandowski.
