Bayern put 5 past Frankfurt to extend lead to 4 points

(Article written two days ago, Dortmund review will be up tomorrow!)

Bayern re-established their four point lead in the Bundesliga by defeating Frankfurt 5-2 after second place Borussia Dortmund won 2-0 away at VfL Wolfsburg.

Chelsea target, and current Barcelona player, Philippe Coutinho on loan at Bayern missed the game due to an ankle injury so the Beverian side played with a front four of Kingsley Coman, Thomas Muller, Ivan Perisic and the red hot Robert Lewandowski.

Bayern went 2-0 by half time with goals from Leon Goretzka and Thomas Muller and straight after the break Lewandowski scored their third.

The Bundesliga leaders did suffer a slight scare after that though as Frankfurt, starting the match in 13th place, hit back with two goals from Austrian defender Martin Hinteregger.

Shortly after Alphonso Davies, the Ghanian born Canadian left back, restored Bayern’s two goal cushion. The 19 year old had a solid game. Hopefully the young lad will get to experience a World Cup such is his ability to show case his game. He also has the the ability to encourage the game in Canada and bring more people into the sport.

With Chelsea looking for a left back during the summer with the possible departures of Marcos Alonso and Emerson I personally would throw this lad into the hat. A unlikely move to the Premier League anytime soon the canadian is definately one to watch for the future should the oppotunity arise.

Bayern sealed the three points in the 74th minute through an own goal by Frankfurt goalscorer Hinteregger. An unfortuant hat trick.

Stand out performances during the game included David Alaba as left centre back for Bayern. Alaba seems to have been around top level football for years but is still only 27 years old. Chelsea would hugely benefit from a payer of his ability to play left side inthe middle of the defence with a calm and composed left foot to add.
