Highlights: Fortuna Dusseldorf 1-4 Bayern Munich

By on 16th April 2019

Kingsley Coman scored twice as Bayern Munich went back to the top of the German Bundesliga with a 4-1 win away to Fortuna Dusseldorf.

The Bavarians have been the champions of Germany for each of the past six seasons and are one point ahead of rivals Borussia Dortmund with five games remaining.

Coman gave Niko Kovac’s side the lead after quarter-of-an-hour when his left-wing cross flew straight past Fortuna goalkeeper Michael Rensing. The French international smashed his second into the top corner five minutes before half-time.

Serge Gnabry added a third from close range 10 minutes into the second half for Bayern before Dodi Lukebakio scored a penalty for Dusseldorf in the final minute. There was still time for Leon Goretzka to add a fourth for the league leaders in stoppage time.

One sour note for Bayern Munich was the loss of goalkeeper Manuel Neuer who went off through injury early in the second half, with Sven Ulreich replacing him.

Bayern Munich have won 15 of their past 17 Bundesliga games to overtake Borussia Dortmund at the top of the table, including their 5-0 thrashing of Lucien Favre’s side at the Allianz Arena last weekend.
