Lewandowski Bayern

Bayern Munich saved by Lewandowski

Robert Lewandowski scored his 25th Bundesliga goal of the season as Bayern Munich defeated bottom side Paderborn to go four points clear at the top of the table.

The 31-year old spared Bayern’s blushes with a brace after they twice lost a lead.

Serge Gnabry gave the hosts a lead after 25 minutes before an horrific mistake from Manuel Neuer allowed Dennis Srbeny to equalise just before half-time.

Lewandowski got his first 20 minutes from time but the visitors equalised again through Sven Michel.

Gnabry turned provider as he had done earlier in the half for the irrepressible Lewandowski to sweep home his second goal of the night.

"Robert Lewandowski's a top, top striker," Davies said after the contest. "He can finish anything you give to him, inside or outside the box."

"Our job as a team is to support him and keep feeding him the ball. Like I said, as a striker that’s his job to put the ball in the net and we’re happy he’s doing it really often."
