Before the top game against Borussia Dortmund had to Bayern Munich against Eintracht Frankfurt start. After a dominant first half, the German record champions made it unnecessarily difficult for a while.
The Munich offensive fireworks really started after ten minutes. First Lewandowski slammed a shot on the crossbar, then Benjamin Pavard narrowly failed with his header to Eintracht keeper Kevin Trapp. In the 17th minute it was time.
Thomas Müller found himself after a great fake acceptance of Ivan Perisic with the ball on the left side of the penalty area, from where he could see Leon Goretzka coming from the back. The DFB international only had to place the ball well placed in the opposing goal net after the good presentation.
Shortly before the half-time break, Thomas Müller also rewarded himself for his outstanding performance with a goal after he took an exact cross from Alphonso Davies in the penalty area. The 3-0 followed just one minute after Robert Lewandowski restarted the game, this time after a cross from Kingsley Coman. But the game didn’t end there.
First, Martin Hinteregger was allowed in the 52nd minute to bounce a crashing ball in the penalty area surprisingly carefree from a short distance to the connection goal, only three minutes later he even managed to score 3: 2 with a header in another corner. The Austrian has already eight league goals this season!
The best striker is still the central central defender and the team only plays for half time.

After this shock, Bavaria came back relatively easily. Alphonso Davies scored after a bad mistake by Gelson Fernandes in the penalty area 4-2 in the 61st minute, 13 minutes later Hinti also scored a goal with a curious action: The central defender wanted to clear a cross from Serge Gnabry with his right foot, however, he hit his left foot, from where the ball rebounded into his own goal net.
Before the final whistle there was a post shot from Filip Kostic, otherwise the eagles did not get much. The 5: 2 is ultimately well deserved for the Munich.
