Bundesliga: Bayern return top with win over Wolfsberg



Despite playing for more than 30 minutes with 10 men, Bayern Munich won easily at Wolfsburg to retake the top spot in the Bundesliga standings.

Within the opening 14 minutes, Kingsley Coman scored twice, and five minutes later, Thomas Muller added a third goal with a header.

Just before halftime, Jakub Kaminski scored to make it 2-1, and in the 54th, Joshua Kimmich was dismissed from the game.

However, Mattias Svanberg scored a late second goal for Wolfsburg before Jamal Musiala added a fourth for Bayern.

The champions overcame Kimmich’s red card for tripping Maximilian Arnold and rallied to snap a three-match losing streak in the league.

Wolfsburg thought they had added a third in the 84th minute through Yannick Gerhardt but Ridle Baku was adjudged to have fouled Leon Goretzka in the build up.

Victory moves Bayern a point ahead of second-placed Union Berlin – who beat Mainz 2-1 on Saturday – while Wolfsburg stay seventh.
