Robert Lewandowski chalked up his sixth goal in just four Bundesliga games as Bayern Munich swept aside RB Leipzig 4-1 on Saturday to go second in the table behind early leaders Wolfsburg. Lewandowski netted a first-half penalty before Jamal Musiala, 18, and Leroy Sane added quick-fire goals just after the break in front of 34,000 fans at Leipzig’s Red Bull Arena. The hosts clawed back a stunning goal when midfielder Konrad Laimer hit the top corner before Lewandowski’s replacement Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting scored Bayern’s late fourth.
Bayern head coach Julian Nagelsmann, who quit Leipzig after two years to take charge in Munich this season, said the result flattered his side, who face Barcelona away on Tuesday in the Champions League. “I’ve always felt well here, today as well,” a grinning Nagelsmann told Sky. “Basically it was good, but we can definitely play better,” he added.
Dortmund win too
Lewandowski is the league’s top-scorer on six goals, one more than Erling Braut Haaland, who earlier scored a brace to seal thrilling 4-3 win for Borussia Dortmund at Bayer Leverkusen.
