Bayern Munich reclaimed top spot in the Bundesliga with a commanding 3-0 over Union Berlin as the Rekordmeister sealed back-to-back home league wins to nil for the first time since October.
The Rekordmeister showed little signs of nervousness, however, and Thomas Müller nearly converted Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting’s cutback, but a troop of Union Berlin defenders quickly snubbed out the danger.
Coming into this clash unbeaten in their last nine, surprise title-challengers Union Berlin were going to prove a stubborn opponent and the visitors displayed their intentions when a rapid break finished with Jérôme Roussillon, who forced Yann Sommer into a low save.
Bayern remained focused and soon showcased the attacking quality that produced a league-high 31 home goals this season by striking three times in quick succession.
Coman then turned goalscorer as he raced on to Müller’s improvised through ball, dummied the onrushing Rønnow and passed into the net before Jamal Musiala capped his 20th birthday with a goal before HT, when he tapped in Müller’s low cross to put the Rekordmeister firmly in control.
After a 3-1 UEFA Europa League win against Ajax in midweek, fatigue seemingly caught up with Union Berlin, who were second best throughout, though Urs Fischer’s side are unlikely to be discouraged as they remain just three points behind Bayern.
