Bayern Munich avenged a 5-0 German Cup defeat to Borussia Monchengladbach on Wednesday with a thumping victory against Union Berlin. Robert Lewandowski scored the game’s first goal from the penalty spot, then doubled the lead for the visitors eight minutes later.
Leroy Sane and Kingsley Coman scored each side of Niko Giesselmann’s goal to make the score 4-1. With 25 minutes left, Julian Ryerson offered Union a tiny chance, but Thomas Muller sealed the victory.
Julian Nagelsmann’s side is now one point ahead of second-placed Borussia Dortmund, who won 2-0 at home against Cologne to keep the pressure on the league leaders.
At Signal Iduna Park, Thorgan Hazard headed Jude Bellingham’s right-wing cross past Timo Horn to put the hosts ahead.
Dortmund’s fourth consecutive league victory was sealed when Steffen Tigges scored his first Bundesliga goal in the second half.
