As if there was no break. Robert Lewandowski started from where he had to finish in a hurry. Benjamin Pavard scored also. Bayern Munich secured the top spot in the Bundesliga by beating Union Berlin.
Seven-time champions Bayern won 2-0 at home on Sunday. They beat Union Berlin 2-1 in the first leg of the league last October. Lewandowski and Pavard also scored two goals in that match.
Like the previous day’s matches, the Union Berlin field also had various precautions to avoid coronavirus infection. The gallery was empty, with masks on everyone’s faces, from the players on the bench outside the field.
After a long time back on the field, Bayern could not make a good start. There were ups and downs in their performance in the first half. However, in the meanwhile they scored a goal; Lewandowski led the team with a spot kick in the 40th minute.

It could have been doubled in the fourth minute of the second half. However, German midfielder Leon Goretzka shot came out close to the goal post.
In the 80th minute, Pavard almost ensured the victory by his goal. The French defender scored the goal with a header in the corner of Joshua Kimich.
Bayern have 58 points from 18 wins and four draws in 26 matches. Borussia Dortmund, who beat Schalke 4-0 the day before, are 4 points behind.
