Bayern Munich came out behind, with a score of 2 to 0 more than surprising, against Mainz 05. But, with great strength, the Bavarian team did the expected and turned in the second stage, scoring 5 to 2 to return to be an isolated leader of the Bundesliga.
Having scored two goals, Lewandowski reached 19 in 14 rounds. If he keeps the pace, he has a good chance of breaking Gerd Muller’s record for the 1969-70 season with 40. That year, Muller had 20 goals in 14 games.
The Bavarians came as tractors. The first was from Kimmich, at 5, after Lewandowski’s header. At 10, it was Leroy Sané’s turn to receive on the right and cut to the left, finding space, and hitting out of reach of the goalkeeper. Süle, at 25, in Muller’s header rebound, Lewandowski made the fourth, at 31. And also the fifth, at 38, from the head, after Thomas Muller’s perfect cross.
