In an end-to-end start to the second half, Maximilian Arnold curled a well-struck free-kick into Neuer’s arms before Serge Gnabry sliced wide from close range at the other end. Gnabry spurned another opportunity to extend the visitors’ lead soon afterwards, shooting straight at Casteels with Lewandowski well-positioned inside the area.
Oliver Glasner’s troops refused to let their heads drop and continued to create chances, Ginczek sidestepping David Alaba before sending another low effort into the grateful hands of Neuer. Moments later, however, Guilavogui was shown a second yellow card for a foul on Cuisance inside the penalty area, allowing Lewandowski to slot home Bayern’s third from the penalty spot. Müller completed the scoring with 11 minutes remaining, drilling home the visitors’ 100th league goal of the campaign from the corner of the area.
