Wolfsburg vs Bayern Munich Full Match Reports

Bayern Munich maintained their pursuit of league leaders Bayer Leverkusen with a hard-fought 2-1 triumph over Wolfsburg, extending their unbeaten streak against the Wolves to 17 games in the Bundesliga.

The hosts almost witnessed a spectacular opener in the initial five minutes when Mattias Svanberg found himself one-on-one with Manuel Neuer, only to shoot straight at the Bayern keeper. Thomas Tuchel’s team, however, swiftly asserted dominance, with early chances falling to Kim Min-jae and Harry Kane. Leroy Sané wreaked havoc down the right-hand side, creating chaos in the penalty area before Raphaël Guerreiro fired wide from the box’s edge.

It appeared inevitable that Die Roten would break the deadlock, and the combination of experience and youth achieved precisely that. After heading against the bar earlier, Thomas Müller provided a crucial assist just past the half-hour mark. Jamal Musiala, marking his 100th Bundesliga appearance as the youngest Bayern player, nodded home from the veteran’s cross for his fifth goal of the season.

The second goal emerged from a familiar source, with Müller again playing a pivotal role. He brilliantly set up Kane, who unleashed an unstoppable long-range strike, swerving past an outstretched Koen Casteels. As Bayern seemed poised for a comfortable halftime lead, Maximilian Arnold narrowed the deficit in first-half stoppage time with an impressive left-footed strike, reigniting the hosts’ hopes.

Niko Kovač sought to reshape his team early in the second half with the introductions of Rogério and Tiago Tomás, both making an immediate impact. Rogério’s weaving run down the left resulted in a saved strike by Neuer, and Tiago Tomás narrowly missed the follow-up. Guerreiro had an opportunity to restore Bayern’s two-goal advantage, but his swerving strike was blocked after a feed from Konrad Laimer.

While the second half lacked the drama of the first, Tuchel had little concern as his team secured a third consecutive victory across all competitions. They remain four points behind Bayer Leverkusen with a game in hand, while Wolfsburg drops to 10th place after winning only one of their last five games across all competitions.

Man of the Match: Thomas Müller (Bayern Munich).
