Demolished in seven minutes: FC Bayern dismisses Bayer Leverkusen thanks to brilliant half-time

Dank einer furiosen ersten Halbzeit zerlegt der FC Bayern die Werkself am Sonntagnachmittag. 

FC Bayern Munich underlined their dominance in the Bundesliga with an impressive performance in the top game against Bayer Leverkusen – and with a 5-1 (5-0) win at Bayern, it remains the leader of the table. Particularly in the first half, Julian Nagelsmann’s team played from another planet and literally destroyed Workself, who had performed so strongly in previous games. Robert Lewandowski (3rd, 30th minute), Thomas Muller (34th) and Serge Gnabry (35th, 37th) had already ensured a clear break lead from their hits. As Bayern were a little more rested in the second 45 minutes, Patrick Schick (55th) scored a goal for Bayer, who slipped to third place in the league.

Bayern started the game with the same team that had lost a surprise 2-1 loss to Eintracht Frankfurt at the Allianz Arena two weeks earlier. “Of course we thought about it. We have some options on the bench, but we want to give last week’s first team one more chance to make it,” Nagelsmann said. DAZN. In doing so, Nagelsmann also placed his trust in Lucas Hernandez. He faces a prison sentence in Spain for disobeying the court’s decision. On Tuesday – the day before the Champions League game in Lisbon – the 25-year-old Frenchman is to appear in a criminal court in Madrid. But there was no sign of problems during the game – and Nagelsmann’s trust should pay off.

First things first: After just four minutes, Robert Lewandowski began the game with an excellent heel hit following an assist from Dayot Upmecano. Bayer then held off a bit, but the German record champions continued to dominate the event. Between the 30th and 37th minutes of play, the Munich team really changed it: again it was Lewandowski who got the ball right in front of his feet from Alfonso Davies and pushed it easily by a few meters to make it 2-0. Gave. . The reigning world footballer ended his mini goal crisis. He had not scored in the last four competitive games. And then it became really clear.

After 34 minutes, Müller falsified a shot from Niklas Sule from the backcourt and immediately after the resumption the goal scorer played the ball all the way into Gnabry’s barrel. The player on the flank hits the ball again from the powerless Lukas Herdecky into the box. Bayern didn’t have enough even after a 4-0 win. Gnabry was there again after only 120 seconds and used a one-two with Leon Goretzka to make it 5-0 at half-time. Only twice in Bundesliga history have two away teams scored the first five goals: Dortmund at FC Schalke and Karlsruhe at Frankfurt (both in 1964).

Julian Nagelsmann began making his players the first substitutes to leave for the upcoming games (the Champions League will take place in Benfica Lisbon on Wednesday). It all started with Alfonso Davies, who later returned from his international tour with Canada as most national players – but with an injury. He probably pulled a muscle. For that, Josip Stanisic discovered, who a few days ago signed a new contract until 2025. Goretzka (46th, Sabitzer), Lewandowski, Muller (both 64th, Musiala and Koman) and Sule (72nd, Richards) were also allowed to go down early.

There was no trace of the spectacle in the second half. Bayern shifted down several gears and began regeneration for the top game in the Champions League on the pitch. Leverkusen also scored a consolation goal by Schick (55th), which was perfectly served by already weak young national player Florian Wirtz. However, the wind was out all over, with fans both on the pitch and in the stands who didn’t whistle the weak workself. Bayern continued to play further. In the end, however, the end result was missing to continue dismantling from the half-time one.
