Defending champions Bayern Munich remain on due course as they aim for the double as they overcome Eintracht Frankfurt 2-1 in a tight contest on Wednesday night in the absence of the fans.
Bayern took an early lead via Ivan Perisic strike, but a second-half equalizer from Frankfurt’s Danny Da Costa canceled out the Croat’s strike just three minutes when he came on.
However, after many entangled consoles between both sides, the impressive Robert Lewandowski made the difference as he struck the winner with just 16 mins to go making it his 45th goals in all competitions this season
Bayern will now go on to the face rivals Bayer Leverkusen after the latter trashed lowly fourth-tier side Saarbruecken 3-0 on Tuesday at the Olympic stadium in Berlin.
Thomas Muller revealed after the game that they often made the right decision in the opposition box, but they believe they should have been three or four up before the stroke of half time which would have made things much easier for them.
” you can feel the fatigue from both teams during the second half of the game, and we had the desire to defend well as a team, especially against the dangerous long balls played by the opposition team.”
The impressive and brilliant Thomas Muller has been assisting in goals as he has gotten 20 so far this season.
Bayern is seven points ahead with four games to spare in the Bundesliga as they looked to defend the title once again.
