Bayern celebrates an effortless victory in Darmstadt

FC Bayern has reduced the gap to league leaders Bayer Leverkusen to seven points, at least for the time being. Meanwhile, the situation is getting tricky for a former Munich coach.

The record champions came from behind to win 98-5 (2-2) in the Bundesliga against bottom team Darmstadt 1 on Saturday. Bayer can pull away again in the game against SC Freiburg on Sunday. The other games on Saturday of the 26th matchday were particularly focused on the fight against relegation.

Bayern clearly dominated the game in the early stages of the game in Darmstadt and created several chances. Darmstadt's Tim Skarke (28th) scored the first goal after strong preparatory work from Mathias Honsak. It didn't take long for the record champions to get back into the game: before the break, Jamal Musiala (36th) equalized and Harry Kane (45th+1) took the lead. Musiala again (64th) gave the team a reassuring 3-1 lead before Serge Gnabry (74th) and Mathys Tel (90th+3) also scored. The second Darmstadt goal by Oscar Vilhelmsson (90+5) no longer had any impact.

At VfL Wolfsburg, the pressure on coach Niko Kovac is growing due to the 1:3 (1:1) draw against FC Augsburg. Wolfsburg slipped to 14th place. FSV Mainz 05 climbed 2-0 (1-0) against 15th place in the table. VfL Bochum passed 1. FC Cologne to relegation place 16. After the 1-2 (1-0) win against Werder Bremen, 0. FC Union Berlin is now in 13th place behind Borussia Mönchengladbach, who are only up against 1. FC Heidenheim after taking the lead a 1:1 (1:0) result.
