Bayern recently had to settle for two draws in the competition. On Wednesday, coach Flick’s squad received the undefeated wolves – who suffered their first defeat.
Bayern Munich had two draws in the Bundesliga against RB Leipzig and Union Berlin. The team of coach Hansi Flick had to give up the lead in the championship to Bayer Leverkusen.
On Wednesday, Munich hosted VfL Wolfsburg. Coach Oliver Glasner’s team hasn’t lost a game this season – but it was their first defeat to Bayern. The Munich team almost won 2: 1.
Wolfsburg was the first to take the lead
Less than ten minutes were played when Maximilian Philipp took advantage of Leroy Sané’s uncertainty, snatched the ball and pushed it in for the Wolves to make it 1-0 (5th). The Bavarians just looked surprised while the Wolfsburgs cheered.
After half an hour, Philipp almost set it up, but his shot from about 14 meters missed the post on the right. David Alaba’s thigh was in between. Shortly before half time Thomas Müller crossed to Leroy Sané, whose shot went over the fence.
Lewandowski turned the game around
A short time later Robert Lewandowski headed the equalizer for Bayern to 1: 1 (45th + 1). After the break, the Bayern star increased to a 2-1 lead (50th) for Munich.
Shortly before time, Bayern coach Manuel Neuer saved his team’s victory by saving Bartosz Bialek’s shot with a brilliant save. The game ended 2-1 for the hosts.
Despite the victory, Bayern failed to take the lead in the championship. Bayer Leverkusen won 4-0 at 1. FC Keulen and thus remains the leader in the Bundesliga.
