Bayern Munich 3-0 Nürnberg: Bavarians Thrash Die Legende


Bayern Munich moved up to second in the Bundesliga after defeating Nürnberg 3-0 at the Allianz Arena.

Robert Lewandowski headed home the opener, following a corner in the ninth minute, before doubling the lead in the 27th minute.

Franck Ribéry then added a third in the 57th minute to seal a first home league victory since mid-September for the Bavarians.

The hosts dominated the first period and looked to get the ball out to their wide players, who possessed terrific quality from crosses. The Bavarians used this to their advantage, as Kimmich’s brilliant delivery was headed home by Lewandowski for the opener.

Bayern moved the ball well and their swift passing tempo cause a myriad of problems or their opponents, who simply couldn’t deal with FC Hollywood’s offensive prowess. This was the case for their second of the match when Leon Goretzka’s speculative effort cannoned off the bar and was dispatched home by Lewandowski, who could have had a first half hat-trick.

The second half continued in the same manner, as Bayern made it three with some brilliant approach play, which occurred after seizing onto an error from keeper Fabian Bredlow.

Lewa got into some dangerous positions and awaited the service from his teammates, which was spot-on and he did the rest. He did well to get ahead of the keeper to head home for the opener and then showed great instincts to react to the follow-up after Goretzka hit the bar.
