Alonso & Lahm Bid Farewell As Bayern End With A Big Win

German Bundesliga

Result: Bayern Munich 4-1 Freiburg

Date: 20 May 2017

Venue: Allianz Arena

Philipp Lahm and Xabi Alonso played the final game of their careers, as Bayern Munich ended the Bundesliga season with a 4-1 win over Freiburg.

Arjen Robben opened the scoring in the fourth minute. The Dutch winger cut inside from the right flank following a quick attack and unleashed a left-footed shot into the far post, 1-0.

Robert Lewandowski had a great opportunity to extend the lead in the 26th minute but his right-footed shot from inside the box missed narrowly wide of the top corner. 

In the 37th minute Alexander Schwolow made a great save to deny Joshua Kimmich from close range, after the defender was teed up Thomas Muller.

Robben had a great chance to make it 2-0 just before the break, but his curling shot went inches over the crossbar following a good attack from the home side. 

The match went into the break with the Bavarians dominating the possession stakes and on top of the Brazilians of Breisgau, leading 1-0.

In the 58th minute Vincenzo Grifo fired a snap shot at Tom Starke inside the box, but the Bavarians goalkeeper was well positioned to make a save.

The home side were patient in their build-ups and were retaining the ball more than to release it quickly up front. 

Artuto Vidal made it 2-0 to the home side after 78 minutes. The Chilean midfielder picked up a pass from Robben on the edge of the box and unleashed a low drive into the bottom corner.

Three minutes later Nils Petersen pulled one goal for the visitors to make it 2-1. The striker made the Bavarians pay following a quick counter-attack that was initiated by Grifo. 

In stoppage time Franck Ribery punished the away side as fired into en empty net after being teed up by Robben.

Joshua Kimmich rounded off the scoring moments later with a close range finish, after Robert Lewandowski hit the woodwork, 4-1.
