Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski scored twice in the 5-0 thrashing and opened his account against the visitors, after a goalless record against the team for a long time. Ironically, the first goal of the game was an own goal from Mathias Jorgensen. The goal was a result of a mistimed shot from defender Benjamin Pavard which led to the ball being deflected off Jorgensen in the 15th minute. The French defender made sure the next goal was recorded under his name by scoring a beautiful header in the 29th minute which couldn’t be kept out by Fortuna Düsseldorf keeper Florian Kastenmeier despite getting his hand on it.

The Polish striker scored another phenomenal goal within minutes of the resumption of the game after halftime. He guided a low-cross from Serge Gnabry with his wonderful back-heel into the visitors’ net in the 50th minute, making the scoreline 4-0 in favor of the hosts.
