Robert Lewandowski scored the 31st Bundesliga goal of his season as Bayern Munich made sure about his eighth consecutive Bundesliga title and 29th overall victory away from relegation-threatened Werder Bremen, in spite of being sent off by Alphonso Davies.
Label rivals of yesteryear, Bremen, and Bayern in the pre-Matchday 32 standings went into the shafts of the challenge apart.
Bremen realized that a decent outcome would lift them out of the automatic drop zone into the relegation play-off spot while Bayern required another year’s victory to hold the title in Munich. Werder shot the primary note shot when Maximilian Eggestein bubbled a wide-ranging exertion before Jerome Boateng chanced his arm with a furious strike that Jiri Pavlenka did well under sopping conditions to clutch to.
Late in a nearby first half, Boateng transformed the supplier into Lewandowski ‘s box with an instinctive chipped pass. After a short VAR analysis, the Poland striker managed his chest and terminated past Pavlenka on the stretch as Bayern went in 1-0 to the great at the break.
Nerves settled, as a second threatened by Thomas Müller and Leon Goretzka inside snapshots of restarting Bayern got up a gear.
Bremen’s backline did well to guard against the hazard, however in the 55th moment when Lewandowski turned in Joshua Kimmich ‘s cross, the Green-Whites were obligated to the linesman’s offside flag, only for the reason to be excluded from the development for an offside ruling against Müller.
Werder sailed too near the breeze for comfort, as Lewandowski didn’t get into touch with Müller’s come-and-get-this show on the road ball in the six-yard box, however, was given a lifesaver when a subsequent yellow card was sent off for Davis.
The hosts tossed all in the end stages at Bayern — including Josh Sargent and Claudio Pizarro — and may have had something out of the game however for Manuel Neuer ‘s flying save denying Yuya Osako’s flicked header.
The outcome leaves Bremen second on goal distinction from the bottom, whereas Bayern champions have an insurmountable noteworthy lead at the top with two games to spare.
