0 23

Bayern Munich made it three wins in a row under Jupp Heynckes as they beat Hamburg to move level on points with Borussia Dortmund at the top of the Bundesliga.

The Bavarian giants stay second in the table, but they now only trail Dortmund on goal difference after Peter Bosz’s side let a two-goal lead slip to draw away at Eintracht Frankfurt earlier on Saturday.

Bayern dominated right from the start and Arjen Robben’s curling shot was blocked right at the 13th minute mark.Coman’s neat turn and chipped pass into the box gave Robben another sight of goal seven minutes later, but the Dutchman’s left-footed shot hit the side-netting.

Bayern’s defence was undisturbed in the first half and Hamburg were also very solid in defence.The Bavarians failed to register a shot on goal until the interval.

But the tides did tilt on Bayern’s favour when Gideon Jung needlessly brought down Coman and was shown a straight red card.
Vidal who came close to scoring right after the restart was brilliantly blocked by Papadopoulos. James came in for Muller and contined to pose a threat for the Hamburg defence.

Coman’s brilliant run and an inviting cross reached Thomas Muller and was touched down on to tolisso who stroked it home to give Bayern the lead.

Andre Hanh tried to capitalise on a loose ball as he blasted his shot towards the top right corner, but Hamburg’s hopes of a equaliser was in vain as Ulreich tipped it off amazingly at full stretch.

Thiago Alcantara crashed a curling shot onto the post after a Robben corner in the 70th minute and Mats Hummels narrowly headed off target as the tension rose.

It would have ended 2-0 had Christian Mathenia not made an excellent save at Robben’s feet, while the post denied Tolisso a second with a header from a corner.

This victory was very important for Bayern as they are now levelled with Dortmund at the top of Bundesliga,as Dortmund was held 2-2 by a stubborn Frankfurt.
