Lewandowski scores FOUR as Bayern beat Hertha in thriller

Robert Lewandowski of Bayern Munich celebrates with Corentin Tolisso after scoring his team's fourth goal from the penalty spot to complete his hat-trick during the Bundesliga match between FC Bayern Muenchen and Hertha BSC at Allianz Arena on October 04, 2020 in Munich, Germany.

Bayern Munich somehow managed to secure a 4-3 victory over Hertha Berlin after incredible late drama at the Allianz Arena.

After letting a two-goal lead slip in the second half, they scored a late penalty to hold off the visitors, who themselves netted a late equaliser after a third goal for the hosts.

Bayern struggled to find their typical intensity, despite carving out the better opportunities. Robert Lewandowski saw a shot saved by Hertha goalkeeper Alexander Schwolow.

Lewandowski broke the deadlock five minutes before half time, finishing well after seeing a header initially saved by Schwolow. 

He added a second after the break to seemingly take the game away from Hertha. Debutant Chris Richards supplied him with a brilliant cross.

Jhon Cordoba managed to hit back with a powerful header just before the hour, giving Manuel Neuer no chance. Not long after that, his strike partner Matheus Cunha levelled the scores with a superb finish into the corner.

Lewandowski thought he had won the game for Bayern, before substitute Jessic Ngankam struck. When the drama seemed over, the Bavarians' talisman scored a stoppage time penalty to clinch victory.
