Bayern provisional leader of the Bundesliga, Nkunku decisive with Leipzig


With only one Frenchman (Dayot Upamecano) at kick-off, Bayern Munich, on the heels of their demonstration in the Champions League on Tuesday in Barcelona (0-3), crushed Mainz on Saturday at the Allianz Arena (6- 2). Provisional leader with two points ahead of Union Berlin (2nd), the Rekordmeister puts pressure on the surprise of this first third of the Championship, which faces Borussia Mönchengladbach (10th), Sunday (3:30 p.m.).

Gnabry opened the ball with Sadio Mané’s first assist of the season that Musalia, at the origin of the movement, finely let pass (1-0, 5th). The same Musalia took advantage of a relay from Choupo-Moting to find the small net (2-0, 28th). Called to order by a double amount from Burkardt (bar) and Lee (post) (33rd), Bayern took off on a penalty caused and converted in two stages by Mané (3-0, 43rd). Widmer reduced the gap with a header from a corner (3-1, 45th + 4), after a penalty deflected by Ulreich, Neuer’s understudy (45th + 3).

After a post from Choupo-Moting (54th), Goretzka rose on a new decisive ball from Mané to score from close to the head (4-1, 57th). Kinsley Coman played the last half hour and delivered an assist on the last goal of this prolific match (6-2, 87th). Before that, the former Rennais Mathys Tel (17) who came on in place of Mané (76th), had scored his second goal this season (5-1, 79th), before Mainz made the painful – temporarily – less bitter ( 5-2, 82nd).
