Bayern Munich defeated Wolfsburg 2-0 on Sunday, to make it two wins in a row to begin the new Bundesliga campaign.
The serial German football champions defeated their tenacious opponents at the Allianz Arena in the first half with two goals from Thomas Muller and Jamal Musiala, laying a marker for how they intend to challenge again for the top flight title this season.
Just two games into the season and the only teams with a maximum six-point total are League rivals Borussia Dortmund and Julian Nagelsmann’s team. Yet, former Bayern Munich manager and current Wolfsburg coach Niko Kovac will be quietly relieved that his team did not lose by a greater margin.
Sadio Mane scored twice in each half, a tap-in from a Serge Gnabry pass in the first half and a header in the second, but both goals were ruled offside by video assistant review. However, in the end, it made no difference since Bayern managed to hold onto their lead until the final whistle to earn yet another victory.
While Wolfsburg returns home to host Schalke on Saturday, Bayern Munich will travel to play Bochum the following day.
