League leaders Bayern Munich returned to winning ways with a 2-0 victory over FC Union Berlin away from home after several weeks of German Bundesliga break, due to coronavirus pandemic. 

Robert Lewandoski put the defending champions ahead from the spot in the 40th minute of the game after Leon Goretzka was fouled in the area. 

Thomas Muller had a goal disallowed for offside by the Video Assistant Referee, VAR, in the 18th minute of the first half which was dominated by the Bavarians. 

Bayern continued their search for second goal of the day from the start of the second half but the hosts held on to the 1-0 deficit. 

Serge Gnabry with a close range shot in the 79th minute forced Union’s goalkeeper, Gikiewicz, to a great save to keep the scoreline at 1-0 despite Bayern’s dominance. 

French defender, Benjamin Pavard, extended the visitors’ lead with a header after receiving a dipping corner kick from Joshua Kimmich in the 80th minute of the game to make it 2-0. 

The victory puts Bayern Munich on 58 points, four points clear of Borussia Dortmund and six ahead of Borussia Monchengladbach.

Bayern will face Eintracht Frankfurt at home on Saturday.

Dortmund had on Saturday defeated Schalke 04 4-0 on Saturday.
