Bayern becomes first Bundesliga club to win nine opening season games, Keep seven point lead over Dortmund

Bayern Munich becomes the first side in the Bundesliga to win nine times in a row, thanks to Muller’s strike in the first half of the game against Werder Bremen.

Incidentally, this was Muller’s ninth strike of the season too as he went past a lacklustre Bremen with a ball from Alcantara. He beat the keeper with his first touch and then put the ball in the net with his second.

Of course, there was controversy as well. With almost 90 percent possession in the first half, they almost obtained a penalty when Lewandowski was caught by the Bremen keeper’s studs.

dentsportIn speaking of what took place, Lewandowski said, “It was a penalty. It’s a pity the referee didn’t give it. It would be a bigger issue if it had been decisive but we won. Three points.”

At the other end, Anthony Ujah missed Bremen’s only chance when he took a shot at goal only to hit it straight at Neuer who isn’t known for making any mistakes.

With this victory, that totals to 999 win in the Bundesliga, Bayern remains at the top of the table with a lead of seven points over Borussia Dortmund.

In summing up their performance, their manager, Guardiola said, “The performance was enough this time but we’ll need more in the coming weeks.”

Also, Schalke beat a 10-man Hertha Berlin to stay in third spot, Darmstadt beat Augsburg to claim ninth spot. Wolfsburg defeated Hoffenheim to take the fourth spot. Bayer Leverkusen drew with Hamburger SV which resulted in the club dropping to ninth place overall.
