Bayern Munich finished its season off with a bang as the Bavarians bashed Augsburg 5-2. The highlight of the day was obviously Robert Lewandowski’s record-breaking goal, but there was plenty for Bayern Munich to celebrate and appreciate. Here are some quick hitters on the match:
- Give it to Robert Lewandowski, he knows how to create some drama. Watching the Polish Hitman break Gerd Müller’s record was something special that all fans should really soak in.

- It was good to see Kingsley Coman get himself back on track. In fact, it was a strong showing from all of the wings.
- I know it was the last match of the year, but I did like the way the wings attacked overall. For the season, it was a rollercoaster ride as Coman, Serge Gnabry, and Leroy Sane all never really were “hot” at the same time. Jamal Musiala has given a huge boost that position of late, but it would be a lot of fun to see them all operating at an optimal level at some point next season (assuming they are all back).
- Joshua Kimmich’s goal was an absolute stunner.
- He might have given up five goals, but FC Augsburg goalkeeper Rafal Gikiewicz was nothing short of spectacular on the day.
- Lucas Hernandez turned in a very solid effort. It appears as if the Frenchman is really starting to settle into his role on the squad and things are looking good for his future as a backline stalwart.
- Manuel Neuer’s penalty kick save once again shows he is the best.
- I still do not get the seemingly pressing need by some folks to get rid of Benjamin Pavard.
- Overall, it was a thoroughly dominate effort from Bayern Munich and it was capped off in the best way possible with Lewandowski’s record-breaking goal.
- The amount of players and staff that leaving is shocking and sad — and now that the time is here and it is actually happening, it is leaving some fans feeling “off.” Losing that amount of experience, talent, and leadership is not going to be easy to replace.
- The emotion on the pitch — before, during, and the game — was off the charts. You could see how much the time spent together meant to these players and the coaching staff. There was absolutely a strong sense of family within that unit.
- This was a season that filled with ups-and-downs (far more ups than downs) and presented so many unique challenges. The fact that Bayern Munich only won the Bundesliga is by no means an indication that this season was a failure.
Robert Lewandowski’s shot chart for the Bundesliga shows just ruthlessly effective he is:
AS Roma manager Jose Mourinho reportedly wants to bring in Wolfsburg striker Wout Weghorst:
According to a report by “Gazzetta dello Sport”, José Mourinho, who will take over AS Roma in the coming season, has targeted goal scorer Wout Weghorst from VfL Wolfsburg as a reinforcement. According to the Italian sports newspaper, the 28-year-old Dutchman is one of the Portuguese’s dream players.
Lost in yesterday’s excitement with the senior team was the sad news that Bayern Munich II has been relegated.
Simply put, things just never got on track this season. From injuries to poor form to general instability, Bayern Munich II just could not find any consistency.

I will always be grateful to this club for trusting in me”. ⚪️ #Atleti @dermotmcorrigan pic.twitter.com/npYjJ7DT1t— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) May 22, 2021
