Bayern Ease Past Wolfsburg 2-0 With Jamal Musiala, Thomas Muller Goals | Watch Highlights
German champions, Bayern Munich made it two Bundesliga wins from two matches when they comfortably beat visitors VfL Wolfsburg 2-0 on Sunday with goals from Jamal Musiala and Thomas Muller.
As reported by ESPN, the Bavarians, who have now scored eight goals in their first two league matches, were lethal in attack, especially in the first half, with Sadio Mane, Muller and Musiala wreaking havoc in their opponents’ box.
Mane also put the ball in the net twice more but his efforts were cancelled by VAR reviews for offside.
“It was obviously not the big show of the first two matches [including Bayern’s 5-3 Super Cup win over RB Leipzig],” Muller said. The Bavarians had crushed Eintracht Frankfurt 6-1 in their Bundesliga opener last week.
“We struggled a bit in the first 10 minutes. Wolfsburg played a lot of long balls to get out of our pressing. We needed some time but got going and maybe we could have scored one or two more goals.”
Alphonso Davies almost scored an own goal when he cleared a header but his effort bounced off the post in the fifth minute, with Wolfsburg enjoying a confident start.
It did not last, however, with Bayern gradually taking control and Germany international Musiala showing great skill and power to shrug off two markers, stay up and drill in for the lead in the 33rd minute.
Bayern are top of the standings on six points, ahead on goal difference of Borussia Dortmund, who have also won their two league matches so far.
