A triplet from the Polish Robert Lewandowski drove Bayern to a 5-0 win against Hertha Berlin to put the champions on a par with Bundesliga leaders Bayer Leverkusen on matchday three of the competition.
The Polish footballer has already accumulated five goals so far this tournament. He has scored in every game. One against Borussia Monchengladbach, another against Cologne and this Saturday three against Hertha, who have not yet scored.
It was a walk for Julian Nagelsman’s team to visit Hertha’s Allianz Arena, which in three games has been unable to score a goal.
After six minutes, the champion already had an advantage after Thomas Muller took advantage of an Alphonso Davies cross to beat Alexander Schwolow.
The visiting team stopped the Bavarian avalanche as best they could and did not concede the second goal until ten minutes before the break, when Lewandowski went into action. He picked up a rebound inside the area and brought the ball to the net.
The third came at the start of the second half and was the work of the new German soccer sensation, the young Jamal Musiala, who took advantage of a pass from Muller.
Robert Lewandowski took center stage in the final stage. He scored the fourth goal in the 70th minute, passed by Leroy Sané, and the fifth in the 84th after receiving the ball from Tanguy Nianzou.
Bayern total seven points. The same as Bayer Leverkusen, leader by goal difference, and Freiburg, third.
