Bayern won their third Champions League group match at Red Bull Salzburg 6-2 (2-1) and expanded their impressive streak in Europe. With the 14th consecutive victory in the premier class, the German record champion took a giant step towards the eighth finals.
“We had good phases and bad phases, also in the second half. In the end we went a long way and then we deserved to win,” said Jerome Boateng, whose goal to make it 3-2 broke the Salzburg resistance. Leroy Sane added on Sky, “We’ve done more difficult than the result says.”
The Austrian series champion took the lead in a lively duel in the 4th minute via Mergim Berisha. Bayern came to the same level via a penalty kick converted by Robert Lewandowski (21st).
Bavaria as in a frenzy
An own goal by Rasmus Kristensen (44th) provided the lead for the guests who did not win in the premier class 20 months ago (1: 3 against Liverpool). Masaya Okugawa’s (66th) equalizer set against Boateng (79th), Sane (83rd), Lewandowski (88th) and Lucas Hernandez (90th + 2) as if in a frenzy.
