Bayern Solidifies Bundesliga Lead with 3-0 Win over Augsburg

MUNICH, Germany – Bayern Munich continues to hold a commanding lead in the Bundesliga table after a 3-0 victory over Augsburg in 12th-round action on Saturday.

Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal scored the opening goal for Bayern 31 minutes into the match at Allianz Arena, getting off a strike after the ball had bounced around several times in the area.

Polish superstar striker Robert Lewandowski doubled the lead for the Bavarian club just seven minutes later on a goal set up by Vidal, who had taken the ball away from an Augsburg player at midfield.

Lewandowski struck again for the third goal in the 49th minute after receiving a cross from right back Joshua Kimmich, putting the finishing touch on Bayern’s fifth straight Bundesliga win.

Bayern now has 29 points, six more than second-placed Leipzig, which managed a 2-2 away draw against Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday.

Hoffenheim drew 1-1 at home against Eintracht Frankfurt to remain provisionally in the fourth spot with 20 points.

In the same round, VfL Wolfsburg notched a 3-1 home win over SC Freiburg, while last-placed Koln suffered a 1-0 away defeat against FSV Mainz 05 on Saturday.

Borussia Dortmund, which still has a tenuous grip on third place with 20 points despite a lengthy slump, suffered a 2-1 away defeat against 11th-placed Stuttgart on Friday.
