Thanks to goals from Robert Lewandowski and Benjamin Pavard, Bundesliga leader Union Berlin beats 2-0.
Bayern Munich remains the leader in the Bundesliga with four points ahead of Dortmund. A safe 2-0 in front of empty ranks against Union Berlin brought the Munich goal of three.
Thomas Müller scored a first goal in the 16th minute, but his supposed 1-0 was revoked after an offside video consultation. Robert Lewandowski made up for what he missed in the 40th minute with his 26th goal of the season in the 26th championship game. Leon Goretzka fouled Neven Subotic in the penalty area.
Benjamin Pavard made the decision in the 80th minute after a corner with a header. It was the 750th goal in the current Bundesliga season.
At Union, which is still 7 points ahead of the relegation zone despite the defeat, coach Urs Fischer was missing on the sidelines. After the death of his father-in-law, the Zurich resident returns to Berlin, but will only head the training again after two negative corona tests.
Cologne give up points after a 2-0 lead
1. FC Köln frivolously lost the home win against Mainz, which was at risk of relegation. The Cologne team, who had won 3 of 4 games before the Corona interruption, had to make do with 2: 2 after an hour’s 2-0 lead. As a result, Cologne missed the first jump into the front half of the table this season.
Cameroonian Pierre Kunde Malong, who played in central midfield alongside Edimilson Fernandes from Switzerland, scored the remarkable 2-2 equalizer for Mainz in the 72nd minute after a solo over 40 meters.
