Robert Lewandowski scored Bayern Munich’s fifth in a 5-2 knocking of Augsburg on Saturday afternoon as the Pole declared Gerd Muller’s record for
his own with the final kick of the season.
The hosts took just 9 minutes to open the scoring, when Serge Gnabry’s dazzling cut down across the goal was fumbled into the web by Augsburg captain Jeffrey Gouweleeuw. Gnabry then doubled the advantage in the 23rd minute, heading house after
a high-octane video game of pinball in the penalty area.
Augsburg had the chance to pull one back just 2 minutes after, but Manuel Neuer saved Daniel Caligiuri’s spot kick, enabling Bayern to make it 3-0 soon after. Joshua Kimmich was provided time and space and decided to drive the ball into the leading
the scoresheet 2 minutes prior to the break, discovering himself outside the location, moving the ball onto his right, and shooting it into the near post to make it 4-0 at half time.
The visitors managed to pull one back eventually when Andre Hahn headed in a swinging totally free kick in emphatic style, offering Neuer no chance. Augsburg then got a 2nd in the 72nd minute when Florian Niederlechner latched onto Hahn’s ball over the top and slotted coolly past Neuer.
It would be Bayern who managed the last laugh, though, and it was Lewandowski who made history with the last kick of the game. The Pole was quickest to respond when Leroy Sane’s shot rebounded into the 6 lawn location before taking it round the goalkeeper and tapping in for his 41st Bundesliga goal of the season.
Phew! Now, let’s see how Die Roten rated …
Manuel Neuer (GK) -9/10-Unbelievable circulation, classic
‘sweeper’keeping’, a couple of great stops and a penalty conserve. Could not do anything about the consolation goals but what a game for the famous goalkeeper. Benjamin Pavard( RB)-7/10- Was strong enough when faced with runners and distributed the ball with his usual grace without doing anything very special.Jerome Boateng( CB)-8/10-Occasionally outmatched when the ball came over the leading but had a strong game with 3 interventions. A
fitting and psychological conclusion to an outstanding Bayern career.Lucas Hernandez( CB)- 7/10 -Caught incorrect side as he offered the first-half penalty away, however aside from that positioned himself completely to nip in crucially on a number of occasions. Alphonso Davies (LB) – 8/10 – Was so positive as he slid up the pitch at rate with the ball at his feet. Registered one essential pass and was constantly happy to put in a protective shift, making 4 takes on. Forever among us ❤ pic.twitter.com/NrhS4NuOXa!.?.!—? CHAMPS?(@FCBayernEN )May 22, 2021 Joshua Kimmich(CM)-9/10-Spread the play magnificently, making his side tick and maintaining a blistering tempo throughout. Grabbed himself a deservedly sensational goal in the very first half.David Alaba(CM)-9/10-Covered an incredible quantity of ground, tracking back to break up counters and rising forward to trigger issues, especially grabbing a help for 4-0. Properly
topped off his Bayern career with a constant, selfless and effective display.Thomas Muller(AM)-7/10 -Constantly discovered pockets of space from which he might produce openings and influence the video game. He’s done it !! 41 GOALS!? Robert Lewandowski breaks Gerd Müller’s all-time Bundesliga goal tally for a single season! ⚽ Record-breaker. History maker. Legend.?? pic.twitter.com/61YqpTbJoP!.?.!— Football on BT Sport(@btsportfootball)May 22, 2021
Kingsley Coman(RW )-8/10-Was electrical from the get-go and provided genuine quality, making 2 key passes. A risk throughout and got a brilliant goal to make it four.Robert Lewandowski( ST)-10/10 -It was written in the stars. After a series of amazing blocks and shots denying him throughout, Lewandowski broke Muller’s record with the last kick of the season.
A great performance, an inexpressible project, and a real great of the game. Take. A. Bow. Serge Gnabry(
LW) -8/10-Showed brilliant imagination and was influential to a lot of Bayern’s forward play, also making two essential passes. Forced the own objective for his side’s very first and headed in medically for the 2nd. Enjoy every last 2nd, @Javi8martinez? ❤ #GraciasJavi #MiaSanMia pic.twitter.com/x9HH6xbNWX!.?.!—?
