Kingsley Coman and Robert Lewandowski both scored in the second half to earn the Bundesliga leaders, Bayern Munich, a 2-0 win at Wolfsburg on Saturday.

The defending champions stayed on course for an unprecedented fourth straight title and provisionally increased their lead over Borussia Dortmund to 11 points as Dortmund host Hoffenheim on Sunday.

Lewandowski raised his best ever tally of Bundesliga goals in one season to 23 goals. The second goal killed off any lingering hopes Wolfsburg had of taking anything out of the game. Pep Guardiola’s team did just enough to win against last season’s runners-up.

Wolfsburg wasted the better chances in the first half despite Bayern’s dominance. Franck Ribéry came on 11 minutes into the second half for Arjen Robben and the French international played a role in both of Bayern’s goals.

He dribbled past three Wolfsburg players before passing to Lewandowski, whose shot was deflected. The ball fell kindly to Coman, who slotted it home from close range after 66 minutes.

The same three players also created Bayern’s second in the 74th. Coman broke through on the right and crossed into the area, Ribéry chested the ball down and Lewandowski drove it inside the post with the outside of his right foot.

Lewandowski scored a Bundesliga-record five goals inside nine minutes when Bayern won 5-1 at home in September. – theguardian –
