Lewandowski scores off the bench for Bayern

Robert Lewandowski gives Bayern the game-winning goal in stoppage time

August 22, 2015 By Oscar Rojas
Die Roten overcame an early goal by Hoffenheim to keep their lead in the Bundesliga, even after Jerome Boateng's red card.

Bayern Munich proved once more they are focused on winning their fourth consecutive Bundesliga title. Without holding anything back, the Bavarians overcame a first-minute goal by Kevin Volland in order to keep the first place of the Bundesliga.

This game had every argument to be called epic. Volland's goal after just nine seconds became the second fastest goal ever scored in the German top flight, and forced Bayern to fight back from the very beginning. Before the first half ended, Thomas Müller equalized after Douglas Costa showed once more his fine dribbling skills.

The next 45 minutes were as excruciating as the first, and things got pretty uphill for Bayern when Jerome Boateng was red carded for a handball inside his team's box. Nevertheless, Manuel Neuer (with a little help from the post) kept it 1-1.

Finally, Robert Lewandowski came into the game, and he made quite a difference for the away side. Just before stoppage time started, the Polish striker sent the ball into the back of the net following a cross by Douglas Costa. With this win, Bayern is two-for-two in the Bundesliga, while Hoffenheim will have to sit and wait for a better chance to defeat Die Roten for the first time ever.

Lewandowski's late goal earned all the praise from fans, while Costa's display did not go unnoticed.
