Bayern Munich in control as Leverkusen brushed aside

Bayern Munich strolled to a 3-0 victory over last season’s runners up Bayer Leverkusen this evening.

Without trying to be too disrespectful to the visitors, the game was as good as over inside 5 minutes when Franck Ribery burst into the penalty area and provided an assist to Thomas Müller for the game’s opening goal.

Quarter of an hour later Daniel van Buyten doubled the league leaders’ lead with a long range indirect free kick that he blasted into the bottom corner.

After that, Bayern Munich took their foot off the throttle as the visitors attempted to get into the game.

Bayer Leverkusen forced a few saves out of Manuel Neuer, but the big summer signing never looked to be in too much trouble.

Substitute Arjen Robben concluded the scoring in the final minute as he was played in down the right wing by Bastian Schweinsteiger, glided into the penalty area and chipped the ball across Bernd Leno for 3-0.

Bayern Munich have now gone nine games in all competitions without conceding a goal since Igor de Camargo beat Manuel Neuer on the opening day of the season.

Jupp Heynckes’ former team have now suffered back-to-back Bundesliga defeats by 3 goals following last weekend’s 4-1 home crushing by FC Köln.

On Tuesday, Bayern Munich host Manchester City in their second group game of the Champions League. The English Premier League side have scored 19 goals in 6 league games and trail only to Manchester United on goal difference.

Bayer Leverkusen host Racing Genk in their second Champions League group stage game on Wednesday.
