Lewandowski Brace Leads Bayern Past Schalke

Bundesliga
 
Result: Bayern Munich 3-0 Schalke 04
 
Date: 16 April 2016
 
Venue: Allianz Arena
 
Bayern Munich further strengthened their position at the top of the Bundesliga standings with a 3-0 thrashing of Schalke on Saturday.
 
The home side put together a decent attack in the 18th minute as Robert Lewandowski and Coman combined before the latter exchanged passes with Bernat. The former Valencia full-back surged into the box to unleash a shot but directed it wide.
 
Bayern spent a lot of time camped in the Schalke third of the pitch but they struggled to create any real clear-cut chances and the sides went into the break without a goal being scored.
 
The deadlock was finally broken nine minutes into the second half. Costa sent a deflected shot wide of the target, but in the next attack Lewandowski was picked out and he placed his shot in at the near post from a tough angle.
 
The striker was at it again shortly thereafter as he doubled Die Roten's lead in the 65th minute. Coman attacked down the right before playing it on for Rafinha who crossed into the box where Lewandowski headed home.
 
In the 73rd minute the result was put beyond doubt as Arturo Vidal netted the hosts' third of the game. Scrappy build-up play resulted in the former Juventus midfielder poking home from eight yards out.
