Lewandowski back to scoring ways as Bayern Munich defeat Union Berlin 2-0

Robert Lewandowski of Bayern Munich scores their first goal from the penalty spot, during the Bundesliga match between 1. FC Union Berlin and FC Bayern Muenchen at Stadion An der Alten Foersterei on May 17, 2020 in Berlin, Germany.

Robert Lewandowski's 26th league goal of the season ensured Bayern Munich made a winning return to Bundesliga action, beating Union Berlin 2-0 to re-establish a four-point lead at the top.

In the oddly sterile setting that will be the norm for the foreseeable future, Benjamin Pavard's second-half header with 10 minutes remaining added to Lewandowski's opener from the penalty spot as Union were beaten at the Stadion An der Alten Forsterei.

Union took a cautious approach, leaving their top goalscorer Sebastian Andersson on the bench until the final 15 minutes, and Bayern were largely untroubled.

Hansi Flick's side were efficient as they responded to Borussia Dortmund's 4-0 hammering of Schalke ahead of the meeting between the two title protagonists at Signal Iduna Park in nine days' time. 

Union stay in 12th place in their first Bundesliga season, seven points clear of the relegation play-off spot.
