Berlin, 18 May 2020 (dpa/MIA) – German champions Bayern Munich returned to Bundesliga action after the coronavirus suspension with a comfortable 2-0 victory at Union Berlin behind closed doors.
Robert Lewandowski was back from injury to net a 40th minute penalty for his league-best 26th strike of the campaign. Benjamin Pavard’s late header made the win safe.
Bayern are four points clear of second-placed Borussia Dortmund, who won 4-0 against Schalke on Saturday. The pair meet in a crucial fixture in Dortmund on May 26.
Promoted Union slipped to 12th in their maiden Bundesliga season but retain a healthy gap to the bottom three.
