Robert Lewandowski again had to save Bayern Munich on Friday with a double in the second half, after humble Paderborn proved a stubborn force to win in the Allianz Arena.
The Pole’s goals kept the Bundesliga lead of the German champions for another week, with the responsibility now at RB Leipzig to fill the gap back to Schalke on Saturday.
The visitors frightened Bayern early, with a goal for offside after four minutes excluded. However, normal service seemed to have resumed when Serge Gnabry arrived after 25 minutes.
However, they were eliminated again, while Dennis Srbeny rounded a wildly rushing Manuel Neuer to go to rest. They also went straight for the last 10 minutes, after Robert Lewandowski’s low ride was answered by the insertion of Sven Michel.
However, an excellent pass from Gnabry used Lewandowski to fire from close range, leaving the visitors rooted and Bayern staying on top of the Bundesliga.
