🇩🇪 Impressive Bayern Munich ease past Hertha BSC to go six clear
Bayern Munich extended their lead at the top of the Bundesliga back to six points after beating Hertha BSC 4-1 at the Olympiastadion on Sunday.
Scorers: Ekkelenkamp 80′; Tolisso 25′, Müller 45′, Sané 75′, Gnabry 79′.
Corentin Tolisso thought he had given Bayern the lead in the first 90 seconds when he volleyed in Thomas Müller’s pass but the strike was ruled out by VAR for offside.
That incident was a sign of things to come as Julian Nagelsmann’s side didn’t let the hosts out of their own half in the early stages, and Müller almost got broke the deadlock when his back-heel was denied by the post.
But the pressure finally told in the 25th minute, and this time the goal stood for Tolisso.
Kingsley Coman’s cross found his fellow Frenchman at the back post and the midfielder responded by heading the ball into the back of the net.
The 27-year-old should’ve had another shortly after when Serge Gnabry’s cross found him free in the area again but this time Tolisso failed to make proper contact and the ball flew over.
Bayern doubled their advantage just before half-time when Joshua Kimmich’s free-kick was turned home by Müller for his seventh league goal of the season.
Hertha looked as if they had turned the tide in the second half but then they gave Bayern an absolute gift to kill the game.
Goalkeeper Alexander Schwolow attempted to pass the ball across his own penalty area but the ball was intercepted by Leroy Sané who simply slotted into the empty net.
Gnabry then added some gloss to the scoreline after being set through on goal and slotting past Schwolow and into the bottom corner before Jurgen Ekkelenkamp lobbed Manuel Neuer to grab a consolation for the hosts.
A lovely day out in the capital for Nagelsmann and his men who react to Dortmund’s win on Saturday to open up a six-point gap once again.
