Initial reactions and observations:

  • A more relaxed second half from Bayern Munich, as Hansi Flick significantly shuffled the team on the pitch, which eventually led to Bayern conceding 2 goals.
  • Robert Lewandowski makes history!!! As he scored a goal in the dying moments of the match. He did something that nobody thought was possible — beating Gerd Muller’s legendary record.
  • Bayern Munich says goodbye to three Bavarian legends — Jerome Boateng, Javi Martinez, and David Alaba. Truly a sad day for Bayern fans.
  • Bayern dominated the match, and Augsburg scored two times from the few chances they had. The two conceded goals were a disappointment, after a penalty was saved.

Full time! Bayern Munich 5 — 2 Augsburg


90’ — ROBERT LEWANDOWSKI MAKES HISTORY! He scored in the last moments of the match!


73’ — Thomas Muller and David Alaba out, Choupo-Moting and Corentin Tolisso in!


72’ — Augsburg score again and make it 4:2


67’ — Augsburg scores from a set-piece!


60’ — Triple substitution for Bayern — Jamal Musiala, Javi Martinez, and Leroy Sane in for Kingsley Coman, Jerome Boateng, and Serge Gnabry


45’ — Second half is underway!


Halftime observations and analysis:

  • A strong performance from Bayern Munich! The team is playing cohesively and deserves the lead. Bayern Munich dominated Augsburg throughout the first half.
  • We’re still waiting for Lewandowski’s goal, although he did have some good chances and almost got his foot in Gnabry’s header, in the end, Serge scored the goal.
  • Neuer on his way to breaking Oliver Kahn’s record for the number of clean sheets, as he managed to save a penalty.

Half-time!


43’ — Kingsley Coman scores a long-distance shot!


33’ — Joshua Kimmich scores a wondergoal! 3:0 for Bayern


23’ — Another goal for Bayern, as Serge Gnabry smashed in a deflected shot


9’ — Goal for Bayern, own goal from Augsburg’s defender


Kickoff! We are underway — the final matchday of the season starts


One hour until kickoff: Lineups are out! This will be the last time you ever see David Alaba or Jerome Boateng in a Bayern shirt. Get ready. Mia San Mia.


Well, Bayern Munich fans, today is time to say your goodbyes.

Goodbye to David Alaba, who came here as a little kid and leaves as a double-treble winner.

Goodbye to Javi Martinez, who came arrived as the record transfer and sparked our most dominant period in history.

Goodbye to Jerome Boateng, who has been a rock our the defense for a decade now.

Goodbye to Hansi Flick, who brought us back to the dizzying heights of European glory, and went one step further by winning the sextuple.

And maybe even goodbye to a 50-year long record, which had stood the test of time through generations of football. What will the team give us today?

It’s Bayern time.
