Polish striker Robert Lewandowski continued his rich scoring form on Sunday as he banged in yet another brace to help Bayern Munich to a 3-1 win over Augsburg in their Bundesliga clash at the SGL Arena.
The latest win for Bayern should serve as some morale booster ahead of their Champions League tie against Juventus in mid-week.
The Bavarians did not enjoy the best of starts but that nonetheless, the Polish striker was responsible for both of Bayern’s first two goals and once again showed a specific ability to create chances even when the team around him are still playing in first gear.
The opening goal came in the 15th minute when a cross dialled in from Thomas Müller found the striker with his back to goal. Yet with a quick jink and flick of his feet, Lewandowski had turned and slotted the ball in to the Augsburg net.
The second came shortly after the break, when the Bayern striker was offered a wonderful through ball from Thiago Alcantara to run on to and simply tap past an unprotected Marwin Hitz in the Augsburg goal.
Bayern picked up a third only a few minutes in the 78th minute through Muller.
Augsburg did get a consolation goal five minutes from time when powerful striker Raul Bobadilla was allowed to turn and shoot in the box to knock the ball past Manuel Neuer but in truth Augsburg had conceded defeat long before that.
It’s another three points in the standings for Bayern in a match that they’ll be surprised they won so easily.
