Bayern end winless streak

AFP

AFP, WOLFSBURG: Ten-man Bayern Munich ended their four-match winless streak on Saturday as Robert Lewandowski scored twice in a 3-1 win at Wolfsburg, a day after the club’s hierarchy launched an extraordinary attack on the German media.

After back-to-back league defeats, Bayern leapt from sixth to third in the Bundesliga, four points behind Borussia Dortmund who routed Stuttgart 4-0 with Paco Alcacer claiming his seventh goal in four Bundesliga games.

Bayern got back to winning ways in Wolfsburg the day after chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and president Uli Hoeness slammed the media in Germany for “disrespectful and disgusting” reporting on star-studded Munich.

Bayern worked for the win, playing the last half an hour with ten men after Arjen Robben was sent off after receiving two yellow cards.

“There was a lot of pressure on this game and I want to thank the boys for a top performance,” said Bayern head coach Niko Kovac.

“It was a very concentrated display. It is the first step and showed that FC Bayern can fight back.”

Lewandowski gave Bayern an early lead when he tucked away Thiago Alcantara’s dummied pass past Wolfsburg goalkeeper Koen Casteels.

It was the Poland striker’s first goal after drawing blanks in his last five games for club and country.

With half-time approaching, Robben earned his first booking for a dive in the area before Lewandowski struck again just after the break. The Polish striker latched on to William’s misplaced back-pass and dribbled around Casteels to poke his shot into an empty net to make it 2-0.

There were nervous looks in the Bayern ranks on 57 minutes when Robben was dismissed after a foul on midfielder Elvis Rexhbecaj.
