Lewandowski strikes again as Bayern Munich sweep aside RB Leipzig
Leipzig (Germany) (AFP) –
Robert Lewandowski scored his sixth goal in four Bundesliga games this season as Bayern Munich swept aside hosts RB Leipzig 4-1 on Saturday to go second in the table behind Wolfsburg.
Lewandowski netted a first-half penalty before 18-year-old Jamal Musiala 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 pulled back a goal when midfielder Konrad Laimer drilled into the top corner from outside the area before Lewandowski's replacement Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting scored Bayern's late fourth.
Defending champions Bayern ensured they stayed two points behind Wolfsburg, who have won all four games so far following their 2-0 victory at Greuther Fuerth.
Leipzig, last season's runners-up, have lost three of their opening four matches under new coach Jesse Marsch.
