Bayern Munich 2-0 Augsburg: Thomas Muller and Leon Goretzka strike as hosts go four points clear 


Bayern Munich 2-0 Augsburg: Thomas Muller and Leon Goretzka strike while hosts go clear four points

  • Thomas Muller met Jerome Boateng's ball over the top with a nice volley
  • Leon Goretzka doubled the lead in injury time after a pass from Serge Gnabry
  • Victory saw Bayern extend his lead over Borussia Dortmund to four points

Thomas Muller scored as Bayern Munich defeated Augsburg on Sunday 2-0 to extend their lead to four points in the chase for an eighth consecutive Bundesliga title.

A strong defensive screen left the home team with few clear chances. The breakthrough came thanks to a long ball, Muller finished well after a ball over the top of Jerome Boateng.

Manuel Neuer saved an important save to keep the three points in Munich and parried Florian Niederlechner's low shot in the 80th minute. Niederlechner then put the ball into the net in the 89th, but he was offside.

Leon Goretzka finally added a second goal for Bayern in the stopping time after being pulled up by Serge Gnabry.

Bayern moved four points away from Borussia Dortmund, which overtook Leipzig for second place on Saturday after Leipzig dropped points in a 0-0 draw with Wolfsburg.

On the occasion of the 120th anniversary of the club, Bayern played white commemorative shirts with burgundy sleeves and almost invisible sponsor logos in commemorative coins.

Bayern support sectors displayed banners with sharp criticism of the club's commercial ties with 2022 World Cup host Qatar.

That was the last act in a dispute between fans and German football officials and club management.

Last week, Bayern fans focused on insults at Hoffenheim & # 39; s billionaire support, Dietmar Hopp. Bayern Chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge joined Hopp in applauding from the sidelines while the players of Bayern and Hoffenheim gave the ball to each other for the last 13 minutes to show fans disapproval.

Leeds 2-0 Huddersfield: Hosts return to top of Championship after Ayling and Bamford strikes 


Leeds 2-0 Huddersfield: hosts overtake West Brom to return to the top of the championship after Luke Ayling and Patrick Bamford struck Yorkshire derby

  • Leeds went to the top of the championship after a derby day victory over Huddersfield
  • Luke Ayling gave the hosts the lead after volleyball at home from the box
  • Patrick Bamford provided then for points by tapping home from two meters

There is no doubt that Leeds is a Premier League team waiting. At the top of the table, eight points free from the third and they certainly won't look back now. And it is without respect for the rest of the championship, including West Brom, who are now second, but no other side comes close.

The players of Marcelo Bielsa are fitter, more dynamic, tactical and technically intelligent and less forgiving than any other team in the second layer. There is a clear charisma to this group that not only runs out but also thinks of its opponents. Huddersfield did what they could and opted for a risky approach based on ownership, but it did not stop Leeds from achieving their fifth consecutive victory and fifth consecutive zero.

From defense to attack, Leeds can make just about any profit from any position on the field. Whether it is completely back Luke Ayling, who sent Leeds in an early lead, or Patrick Bamford, who can be frustrating to watch, but who also buried Huddersfield with a poacher finish in the six-yard area.

Danny Cowley would have thought that his party was more likely after Kalvin Phillips had not made the 18-man team with a knee injury.

Phillips is an important part of the way the Bielsa 4-1-4-1 system works, but given the versatility of the players and the Argentine experience, a solution was easily found – Ben White went ahead and Gaetano Berardi fell in central defense. Each player is expected to play a certain role at any given moment and they do so with such intensity that it can make players bamboo.

Indeed, there was hardly any time on the clock before a distinctive Bielsa move came in to play. Flying winger Jack Harrison, who was Leeds' best player here, shot left forward. From there, he could have aimed at the six-yard box with a cross, but opted to deepen his pass knowing that Ayling was sprinting from the right.

The ball was accurately delivered and Ayling did brilliantly to meet the ball in the air and lead a right-footed volley over the top of Huddersfield goalkeeper Jonas Lossl, who hit the bar en route. It was so devastatingly murderous.

Hudd ersfield could easily have folded and undoubtedly the party that started the season after last year's r elegance could have done well. But there is more a grainy edge on this side, even if that means that you have to take a rather cynical approach from time to time, as evidenced by Richard Stearman's mistake at Bamford in half of Huddersfield, who gave him a yellow card yielded.

MATCH FACTS

Leeds (4-1-4-1) : Meslier 6.5; Ayling 7.5, Berardi 6.5, Cooper 7, Dallas 7; White 7; Klich 7 (Shackleton 82), Harrison 8 (Alioski 90 + 2), Costa 6.5, Hernandez 7; Bamford 7 (Roberts 77)

Unused substitutes: Caprile, Douglas, Strujik, Casey

Goals: Ayling 3, Bamford 51

Booked: Ayling, Berardi, White

Manager: Marcelo Bielsa 8

Huddersfield (4-2- 3 -1): Loss1; Simpson 6, Stearman 6, Schindler 6, Toffolo 6; Chalobah 6, O & # 39; Brien 6.5; Willock 6 (Pritchard 66, 6), Smith Rowe 6.5 (Bacuna 71, 6), Grant 6.5; Campbell 6 (Mounie 60, 6)

Although that showed a robust side to the Huddersfield style, they were now inventive with Smith Rowe and Grant. Trevoh Chalobah came close during one of his rare runs in the Leeds box, with Illan Meslier making a rather unorthodox rescue with his legs.

But for Huddersfield & # 39; s positive response after running behind, they did not do any obvious damage. And if you don't make the best use of inviting openings – such as Grant rubbing into the Leeds box from a corner before you went to the ground – you tend to be burned by a side that is at such a speed. the field can.

Within 10 seconds after Grant lost the ball in the Leeds area, the hosts almost doubled their lead.

Bamford burst through the middle of the Huddersfield half, freed Harrison, who then switched play on the right where Helder Costa waited to pass behind Bamford, but the striker couldn't reach the ball. Although it counted for nothing, it was yet another example of how quickly Leeds can turn defense into attack.

From there they enjoyed two attacking movements before the break. First, Ayling found Harrison with a cross that flew the winger before Berardi headed Harrison's free kick past Lossl's left post.

Huddersfield could take a break, but that was it when Leeds went another level in the second half.

<p> <noscript> <img id= Trevoh Chalobah had one of the chances for visitors on a difficult afternoon for them

Bamford got his 13th of the season when he came in close after Lossl had done so well to get the head of White.

The game was over from that moment on, but Leeds wanted more. The volume went up on Elland Road while Harrison bent a shot in the upper right corner. Lossl had no team to move when the ball hit the bar and bounced. It was now a procession and no longer a competition when Huddersfield entered damage limitation mode.

The largest turnout of the season on Elland Road was announced as 36,514 and encouraged supporters to sing: & # 39; You have only come to Leeds. & # 39; Fortunately for the Huddersfield fans, if Leeds doesn't mess this up right now, they won't have to next season.

Wolves 0-0 Brighton: High-flying hosts are held by Brighton in Premier League stalemate at Molineux


Wolves 0-0 Brighton: Beautiful passing is not a spark, because high-flying hosts are held by Brighton at the deadlock of the Premier League in Molineux

  • Wolves and Brighton shared the Premier League blank at Molineux on Saturday
  • Both parties enjoyed striking turns, but the chances were high
  • Raul Jiminez shot right to visit goalkeeper Maty Ryan in the second half
  • The result meant that Wolves never defeated Brighton in a top-flight meeting

Premier League high- kites Wolves were held at 0-0 by Brighton in Molineux in a competition that removed the Seagulls two points from the relegation zone.

Entrepreneurial passing and slippery possession were the characteristics of both parties when two teams that were easy to see tried to achieve a breakthrough.

Their failed efforts culminated in a stalemate with which Albion, who started the day just one point free from the bottom three, will be happier.

Expectations among believers at home were high after a four-match unbeaten Premier League run that had brought Wolves to fifth place in the table.

Nuno Espirito Santo had hoped that his party would win a third consecutive game and build on their impressive 3-2 win at Tottenham in their last Premier League

A change made to the Portuguese imposed was the absence of jet-heeled wedeman Adama Traore, who started on the couch as a fitness precaution but was introduced in the second half.

The draw meant that seven of the last 11 encounters between these parties ended in a draw and kept Brighton unbeaten in ten top matches against Wolves.

Troubled Brighton still has to win in 2020 and lost at home with 1-0 to arch rivals Crystal Palace last week despite 24 goal attempts.

Even in the face of Wolven's pacy attack, the men of Graham Potter looked calm with the ball and threatened to break half the odds.

Right-back Ma rtin Montoya and the towering Dan Burn, across the street, were largely concerned with the characteristic danger that their opponents posed on both wings.

Solly March, who refuses Brighton's best chance against Palace, failed to get the best out of their best chance when he fired a shot over the bar when he was well placed in the penalty area in the second half.

Traore tried to test by Burn, who had already been rewarded, by an increasingly frustrated audience. a yellow card, several times after its introduction.

One of those forays gave Raul Jimenez the chance to shoot within the penalty area, his low blow in the grateful arms of Maty Ryan.

You should go all the way back to Wolves' last campaign outside the Premier League to find the last time they had to wait so long – 75 minutes – without a shot at goal in a match.
