Bayern Run Rampant In Darmstadt

German Bundesliga

Result: SV Darmstadt 0-3 Bayern Munchen

Date:   19 September 2015

Venue: Merck-Stadion am Bollenfalltor

Bayern Munich were a class above SV Darmstadt in their 3-0 riot on Saturday afternoon.

Bayern Munich were quick out the starting blocks, just before the ten-minute mark Arturo Vidal was already striking warning signs as the striker had an effort go only inches wide.

Ten minutes later, Douglas Costa also had a shot go narrowly wide before Vidal stepped up in the 19th minute with a rocket of an effort from outside the box and into the top corner, 1-0.

Dominik Stroh-Engel responded with a fine shot of his own a few moments later, but Manuel Neuer produced the goods to keep the ball out in the bottom corner.

Costa was looking lively halfway through the first half, and Marcel Heller almost grabbed the equalizer from a tight angle in the 31st minute, but his shot was just wide.

The hosts were looking very threatening and Konstantin Rausch also tested Neuer two minutes later, before Costa also had an effort well saved a few moments later.

The visitors upped the tempo as the half drew to a close and Vidal came close before Kingsley Coman’s 39th minute effort went agonizingly wide, and the teams headed into the break with Bayern leading 1-0.

Pep Guardiola’s men continued where they left off after the restart, and David Alaba had a shot well saved in the 54th minute before Mario Gotze had to watch his effort go narrowly wide of the mark a minute later.

It was only a matter of time before Kingsley Coman made it 2-0 in the 61st minute.

Sebastian Rode turned from provider to scorer as he stepped up a minute later to extend the visitors’ lead to 3-0.

It seemed Bayern took their foot off the pedal for the last few minutes, but SV Darmstadt could not capitalize with only a few half-chances being created by the hosts.

The defending champions defended well and managed to hold on for the 3-0 win.
