Bayern did not make a mistake in Düsseldorf, he returned his leadership
The reconciliation between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund continues with full force. After Saturday’s Dortmund defeated Mainz and at least temporarily took the lead, a day later, Bayern transferred her after 4: 1 as a guest to Fortuna Dusseldorf.
The Bavarians definitely had something to return to this rival, who in the first half of the season had sensationally reached 3: 3 in Munich. At Esprit Arena, however, the big one was categorical and did not question his superiority.
Back in the 6th minute, Kingsley Comman hit the left side pillar, and shortly thereafter, Tiago Alcantara missed his head in an advantageous position. In the 15th minute the result was found. Kingsley Comman lowered the center to Thomas Muller on the right. Mueller himself failed to hit the ball, but it mistaken the goalkeeper of the host Michael Renzing and led to the goal of the Frenchman in his door.
The advance was doubled again by Coman at the end of the first half. Serge Gnabri outstrips Yossawa Kimih on the right, he finds himself on the ground in the Comman field, and the Frenchman from a comfortable position realizes.
At the beginning of the second part, Niko Kovacs had to make a forced goalkeeper change because of Manuel Neuer’s injury. Sven Ulriah’s entry did not affect the outcome of the game in any way.
2 minutes later, the intrigue ended after a third goal. After cornering from a corner, Thomas Muller headed for Gnabri, who spotted a meter from the rear beam.
By the end, the game was just playing, but still two more goals were scored. In the 89th minute, Dodi Lukebaki scored a 3: 1 penalty, and in the added time, León Goretzka formed the final 4: 1, putting the easy position after a ricochet in the opponent’s body.
In the standings Bayern is the leader with 67 points, 1 in front of Borussia. Fortuna is calm for his future in the elite with 37 points, giving him the 10th position, far ahead of the relegation zone.
