It took Bayern Munich 13 minutes to take the lead in Moscow. Then Leon Gorecka scored the fourth goal of the season after Benjamin Pavard played from the right. At the time, it felt like another easy game against the German champions and last season’s Champions League winners. However, it was not an easy match, because later Lokomotiv successfully opposed Bayern, and in the 70th minute Anton Miranchuk equalized.
Just over 10 minutes before the end of the game, oshoshua Kimic gave Bayern the lead with a precise shot from outside the penalty area. The team from Munich kept the advantage of one goal until the end of the match.
Germany is strict with Lewandowski
German media criticized the performance of Robert Lewandowski, who was fouled in the penalty area in the second half, but after the VAR analysis, the judges judged that he was previously offside. – Lewandowski was not the same player we know from the Bundesliga. The difference in the level of his performances in the home “playground” and in the match against Lokomotiv was very significant – assessed the portal 90min.com, which gave the Pole only “4” (on a scale of 1-10).
Lewandowski was not rated much better by the portal eurosport.com, giving him a rating of “5”. In return, the portal sportskeeda.com rated the Pole at “6”. – Not a very efficient match from Lewandowski. He did not impress, nor did his colleagues. Maybe there was a chance for a shot from the white spot, but the referee, helping with VAR, did not dictate that – Lewandowski’s assessment was justified.
Everyone recognizes oshoshua Kimich, the scorer of the decisive goal, as the hero of the game. “Manuel Neuer got up on this occasion, and oshoshua Kimich scored a wonderful goal to win,” SPIEGEL writes.
