Later, Musiala’s pass resulted in a assist, as Mané made a long shot after stopping the ball to expand the lead. At the end of the second half, Hrádecký made a fatal error in his own penalty area while making a clearance, and Müller easily stole the ball and slotted it into the net to ensure his side will seal the victory with a big score. In the end, Bayern Munich beat Leverkusen 4-0 and earned their first 3 points after 4 winless matchdays.
