Bayern stroll past Fortuna Dusseldorf

Bayern Munich moved ten points clear at the summit of the Bundesliga with an emphatic 5-0 victory over Dusseldorf.

Bayern’s 10 point lead at the top last 24 hours before Dortmunds game the following day.

The German giants gained the lead in the 15th minute through an own goal by Mathias Jorgensen. Some good passing play saw Benjamin Pavard shoot but was deflected past the Dusseldorf goalkeeper by Jorgensen. 

French right back Pavard was able to find the back of the net himself in the same half to name the game 2-0.

Robert Lewandowski continued his rich form with his 33rd and 34th goals of the season. The Polish goalscorer put any chance of a Dusseldorf comeback beyond doubt either side of the half time interval.

Young Canadian Alphonso Davies added insult to injury two minutes after Lewandowski’s second weaving his way past players in the penalty box and tucking the ball past the keeper.

Davies has been touted by some as the best left back in the world. Personally I feel he is currently the most inform left back, however, when you look at other players in that position you have to look at the likes of Marcelo and Jordi Alba at Real Madrid and Barcelona plus a certain Scot playing for Liverpool in the form of Andy Robertson as the best of in the world.

With Chelsea looking for a left back these are the types of left backs that they should be thinking of in regards to their ability to get up the field to support the attack but also having the strong defensice skills.

Obviously the four named are well established in their teams so any transfer for the above named would be unlikely though others are available such as Nicolas Tagliafico of Ajax, Alex Telles of FC Porto and Ben Chilwell of Leicester City.

Finally, on loan Barcelona player at Bayern Munich Philippe Coutinho again was absent from the match day squad due to his ankle injury he substained during training during the break in football due to Coronavirus.
