Furth lost the match against Bayern Munich. The team did everything to score three goals and get a good match.


Muller & Kimmich on top of the world

Thomas Muller and Joshua Kimmich were among the goals as ten-man Bayern Munich cemented Bundesliga top spot with a 3-1 victory away to promoted side Greuther Furth in the Matchday 6 curtain-raiser on Friday. Julian Nagelsmann sent his side out in an unfamiliar 3-4-2-1 formation, with Benjamin Pavard and Alphonso Davies operating as wing-backs in a team designed to go all-out attack. They did just that from the outset, with Leon Goretzka setting the tone early with a drive from 18 yards that fizzed just wide. It wasn’t long before Bayern did take the lead though, Davies tearing into space down the left and his deflected cross into the middle falling at the feet of Müller, who swept home from 16 yards. Fürth refused to simply sit back and defend though, and got forward well on a number of occasions even if they were unable to produce an end product. The Reds remained in control, however, and added a second just after the half-hour mark when Joshua Kimmich curled in a second from the edge of the box from Leroy Sane’s lay-off. Fürth’s best chance of the first 45 minutes came just before half-time, with the unmarked Paul Seguin arriving a fraction of a second too late at the back post to poke in a corner that had been flicked on.


Comfortable score-line after the first-half

The home side were handed an unexpected lifeline soon after the restart when Benjamin Pavard was sent off for a professional foul on Julian Green. The Clover Leaves had their best effort on goal as a result, although Manuel Neuer was equal to Branimir Hrgota probing free-kick from 25 yards. Bayern largely remained comfortable though, and Robert Lewandowski went close to his eighth Bundesliga goal of the season, but goalkeeper Sascha Burchert was alive to the danger.
