Musiala show! Bayern win clearly in Darmstadt

Jamal Musiala

FC Bayern won clearly at Bundesliga bottom club Darmstadt 98, although the Munich team initially fell behind, but then Jamal Musiala in particular turned on the heat.

FC Bayern won 5:2 (2:1) at bottom-of-the-table Darmstadt 98 on matchday 26 of the Bundesliga. Jamal Musiala (36. 64.), Harry Kane (45. 1), Serge Gnabry (74.) and Mathys Tel (90. 3) scored twice for the Munich side.

Musiala put in an outstanding performance, not only scoring two goals but also setting up Gnabry’s strike.

However, the visitors had initially fallen behind against the heavy underdogs. Tim Skarke scored the opening goal for the home side. After a long clearance from Darmstadt goalkeeper Marcel Schuhen, FCB defender Eric Dier headed the ball into the centre. Mathias Honsak then went on the dribble and laid off to Skarke, who was able to slot into the far corner in front of Bayern keeper Manuel Neuer.

Jamal Musiala equalised for Bayern in the 36th minute. Aleksandar Pavlovic made a strong run down the left flank, penetrated the penalty area and played the ball into the centre. The ball came out to Harry Kane, who missed it slightly but it landed right at Musiala’s feet. The youngster shot straight left-footed to make it 1:1.

Musiala scores twice and sets up Gnabry’s goal

Shortly before the half-time whistle, Kane headed Bayern into the lead after a sharp cross from Joshua Kimmich.

In the second half, Musiala made it 3-1 for coach Thomas Tuchel’s side after an excellent dribble.

Serge Gnabry made it 4:1 for FCB in the 74th minute. Gnabry finished into the left corner after a pinpoint pass from the brilliant Musiala.

Mathys Tel scored the final goal for Bayern. The Frenchman, who came on as a substitute, scored in stoppage time after being played in by Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, who also came on as a substitute.

However, Darmstadt scored the last goal of the game: Oscar Vilhelmsson also scored in stoppage time to make the final score 2:5.

The win enabled Bayern to reduce the gap on leaders Bayer Leverkusen in the table to seven points, at least for one night. Coach Xabi Alonso’s team face SC Freiburg on Sunday (3.30pm).
