Bayern Munich picked up another clean sheet to remain at the top of the Frauen Bundesliga on Sunday. The 3-0 win over SV Meppen moves Bayern two points clear of their closest challenger and ten points ahead of the final Champions League place awarded to the league.
Marina Hegering got things started for Bayern with an amazing solo run through the box before poking the ball over the goal line for the 1-0 lead. Klara Bühl doubled Bayern’s lead at the half hour mark finishing a brilliant run from Hanna Glas.
In the 40th minute, Lineth Beerensteyn made it 3-0 and put the match out of reach. Sarah Zadrazil slid a pass into the box to Beerensteyn who dropped her defender to the ground and finished off the farm.
Bayern pushed for more goals in the second half, but they were unable to snag any more. Still, eight shutouts to start the campaign is an incredible feat, and the Bayern defenders should be proud.
Bayern XI: Benkarth - Simon, Hegering, Wenninger, Glas (81. Ilestedt) - Zadrazil (60. Boye), Magull - Asseyi (60 Schüller), Dallmann (81. Laudehr), Beerensteyn (67. Corley) - Bühl
After eight matches, Bayern are sitting perfect with 24 points at the top of the table. The Bavarians have scored 26 goals and conceded 0 so far. It’s a remarkable start to the campaign.
Bayern’s next match is the biggest of the season. The Bavarians will host perennial champions Wolfsburg at the Bayern Campus. With a two point lead at the top of the table, Bayern has a chance to put some real distance between themselves and Wolfsburg.
