Takeaways from Bayern Munich’s monumental win at Werder Bremen.
Bayern Munich went away to Werder Bremen and came away victorious with not only the match but also with the Bundesliga title. The match finished 1-0, with Robert Lewandowski bagging a beautiful goal. The team has been playing games every 3-4 days in the last couple of weeks. With Bremen fighting against relegation, it is understandable that Bayern had to fight for the win.
The lone goal from the match came late in the first half by Robert Lewandowski. In the 43rd minute, Jerome Boateng floated a ball past the Bremen defense onto the chest of Lewandowski, who brought the ball down onto his foot and then put it into the far corner (via whoscored.com). It was a perfectly-timed run that beat the offside trap and a well-timed goal, just before the half-time.
It was a tough start to the season, but Die Roten turned their fortunes around and retained the league title. The obvious turning point was when Hansi Flick took over for Nico Kovac and changed the tactical style of the team.
Moreover, the squad showed the quality and determination that they did not lose after coming back from the corona-virus break. But all that matters is that Bayern Munich are champions of the Bundesliga! Here are some takeaways from the match that secured the title.
