Doubles for Lewandowski, Muller puts Bayern 16 points clear

Doubles for Lewandowski, Muller puts Bayern 16 points clear

Bayern Munich beat struggling Werder Bremen 4-2 as Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller - who got his 100th league goal - starred.

The 28-year-old forward will take heart from finally reaching the milestone, having scored just five top-flight goals last season before doubling his tally for 2017-18 on Sunday.

Jerome Boateng's pinpoint long pass found Muller's chest and the Germany star slammed the ball home to make it 1-1 four minutes before the break.

Jerome Gondorf had fired the visitors into a 26th-minute lead and Werder were level in the final quarter when Niklas Sule put through his own net.

Triple treat: Supermoon, blue moon and lunar eclipse coming next week
So, if you are living in Metro Vancouver, you are in for this once in a lifetime treat! Between 5 a.m. and 6 a.m. Adding to the naming confusion, this full moon was also known as the "snow moon" by some Native American tribes.


Another Lewandowski header restored Bayern's advantage before Muller's neat finish wrapped up the win.

It's the sixth consecutive game in which Bayern has extended their lead at the top of the table since the defeat at Borussia Monchengladbach - Jupp Heynckes' only blot in 17 games across all competitions since he returned as coach.

Bayern moved 16 points clear after 19 games.

Bayern went ahead soon after, though, as Lewandowski met James Rodriguez's corner and headed past the helpless Pavlenka.

US reveals when its Jerusalem embassy to be opened
On Sunday, Pence met with the King of Jordan, who said that "East Jerusalem must be the capital of a future state of Palestine ". Violent protests since Mr Trump's announcement has left at least 17 Palestinians dead, mostly in clashes with Israeli forces.


"I hope to win the Champions League and then we'll see what happens, but at this moment I am 100 per cent at Bayern and there is no chance of changing teams". "We certainly have to work on a few things, like we do after every game. But the team's attitude and condition are excellent".

The Bundesliga side's recent acquisition of Leon Goretzka further fuelled speculation that Vidal could possibly leave the Allianz Arena.

Marko Pjaca scored early on his first Bundesliga start after joining Schalke from Juventus, but the home side did not press its advantage and Fuellkrug earned the visitors a deserved share of the points.

Dzeko and Benteke emerge as Chelsea's top targets
Dzeko has scored 61 goals in 117 appearances for Roma and it's thought he's wary of becoming a fringe player at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea might also be willing to allow Michy Batshuayi to go out on loan to Roma as a makeweight to push through the deal.
