Bayern Munich defeated Frankfurt on Saturday to maintain it’s top spot in the German Bundesliga.
Bayern claimed a 5-2 win to stay four points clear of second place Borussia Dortmund. The game happens to be the team’s second post-covid-19 league match.
Bayern cruised into a 3-0 lead with goals by Leon Goretzka, the league’s top-scorer Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Mueller at the Allianz Arena before Frankfurt rattled the hosts.
Frankfurt then fought back when Defender Martin Hinteregger bagged two quick goals from successive corners when he volleyed home, then headed in to make it 3-2 on 55 minutes.
But to no avail, Bayern was able to extend their league with a goal from Alphonso Davies and Frankfurt’s Martin Hinteregger who bagged an hat-trick.
A minute’s silence was held before the day’s five matches to remember the victims of COVID-19, which has so far claimed 8,216 lives in Germany.
