Takeaways from Bayern Munich’s big victory against Fortuna Dusseldorf.
Bayern Munich thrashed Dusseldorf 5-0 at the Allianz Arena in what was a routine match for the Bavarians. With Bayern Munich coming into this game at the top of the league table and Dusseldorf coming in fighting relegation, it looked to be an easy match for the home side. And that is exactly what happened.
Die Roten came into this match in top form after winning the Der Klassiker on Tuesday, conceding only two goals since the restart of play. The offense has started playing exceptionally well recently. With Dusseldorf looking lackadaisical in defense, the final score could have been much higher.
The scoring opened in the 15th minute after an own goal by Dusseldorf’s Zanka. Benjamin Pavard was the second goalscorer in the 29th minute, and Robert Lewandowski closed out the half with one of his own in the 43rd minute. Bayern sealed the victory by scoring two consecutive goals in the 50th and 52nd minutes. Lewandowski got the fourth goal, while Alphonso Davies scored the final goal of the game.
