Bundesliga

Result: Bayern Munich 5-0 Schalke

Date: 25 January 2020

Venue: Allianz Arena

Defending champions Bayern Munich reclaimed second spot in the Bundesliga after thrashing Schalke 5-0 on Saturday evening.

The Bavarians made only one change as Joshua Kimmich slotted in midfield in place of Philippe Coutinho while the front trio of Ivan Perisic, Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller were retained after they all scored in the thumping win over Hertha Berlin.

Bayern had a flying start as Lewandowski blasted home the opener in the sixth minute after Perisic pounced on a loose ball from Muller's cross.

Rabbi Matondo almost found the equaliser for Schalke three minutes later after he won possession on the edge of the box and unleashed a looping strike that took a deflection and sailed onto crossbar.

Muller found the back of the net for the hosts in the 18th minute after deflecting Leon Goretzka's volley but the goal was disallowed for offside while Lewandowski was also denied the second goal with seven minutes left of the first stanza by the offside flag.

However, Muller eventually secured the second goal for Hans-Dieter Flick's charges in first-half stoppage after turning home Goretzka's flick-on on in the six-yard area.

The Bavarians started the second stanza brightly, as Goretzka added a third goal  five minutes after the break with an acrobatic volley at the far post after his initial header was blocked from Kimmich's cross.

Thiago Alcantara gave Bayern a commanding 4-0 lead just before the hour-mark with a simple tap-in after Lewandowski did all the hard work to dribble his way clear on the left side.

Serge Gnabry got the fifth goal for Flick's men in the last minute with a strike from the edge of the to complet the rout for the defending champions.
