Lewandowski powers Bayern against hapless Cologne

March 1, 2021 By 0 Comments

Robert Lewandowski and Serge Gnabry both scored twice as Bayern Munich strengthened their position at the top of the Bundesliga with victory over Cologne.

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting opened the scoring before Lewandowski converted Leon Goretzka’s pass to make it 2-0.

Ellyes Skhiri reduced the arrears, but Thomas Muller teed up Lewandowski to restore the hosts’ two-goal cushion.

Gnabry scored twice in the final 10 minutes to complete a comfortable win.

The victory lifts Bayern two points clear of second-placed RB Leipzig, who recovered from two goals down to beat Borussia Monchengladbach 3-2 on Saturday evening.

Poland striker Lewandowski has now scored 28 Bundesliga goals this term – nine more than any other player in the division.

With 11 league games remaining, the 32-year-old is on target to beat Gerd Muller’s record of 40 goals in a Bundesliga season, set in 1972.
