Suara.com – Bayern Munich won a big 5-1 victory over FC Koln in the German League match at the Allianz Arena, Munich, Saturday (27/2/2021). Meanwhile, Borussia Dortmund won 3-0 over Arminia Bielefeld’s guest.
Hansi Flick’s men recorded one draw and one defeat after returning from Qatar. But in the middle of the week they were able to win over Lazio in the Champions League, and at the weekend they again showed their maximum performance on the domestic scene.
This massive win over Cologne further cemented Bayern at the top of the standings with 52 points, five points ahead of second-placed RB Leipzig, who played on Saturday night. Meanwhile, Koln’s third successive defeat kept them stuck in 14th place with 21 points, according to the official German League page records as published by Antara.
Leroy Sane and Niklas Suele had time to trouble Cologne goalkeeper Timo Horn, before Leon Goretzka sent in a cross which was met by Eric Maxim Xhoupo-Moting’s perfect header for the opening goal in the 18th minute.

Robert Lewandowski failed to score moments later when he headed just wide. But the Polish forward immediately got his name on the scoreboard as he started the attacking move with a heel pass to Goretzka, who then outwitted Rafael Czizhos and sent him back to Lewandowski to convert for a goal in the 33rd minute.
Koln, who never bothered goalkeeper Manuel Neuer in the first half, was then able to score a goal to reduce the deficit in the 49th minute. Miscommunication between David Alaba and Jerome Boateng made it easy for Ondrej Duda to send a pass to Ellyes Skhiri, who beat Alphonso Davies before tucking the ball into the Bayern goal.
Coach Flick entered Serge Gnabry and Thomas Mueller to add to his team’s banging power. Mueller then sent a pass to Lewandowski to book it for Bayern’s third goal in the 45th minute.
Neuer made a mistake to give Dominick Drexler a chance to score a goal to reduce Cologne’s lag, but his shot failed to produce a goal.
It was Bayern who increased the advantage in the last ten minutes of the match. First from Gnabry’s close-range strike in the 82nd minute, and the same player then scored his second in the 86th minute to seal Bayern’s convincing win.
