The forward scored the only goal in Sunday's Bundesliga encounter with Hoffenheim, following up on an equally important strike against Borussia Dortmund in their DFB Pokal quarter-final tie on Wednesday.
Otherwise, Bayern were not at their usual scintillating best as a resilient Hoffenheim defence prevented them from making any headway into the game.
It did not matter in the end as the Bavarian side were equally disciplined at the back and ensured that one goal was all that was needed to secure the three points on the night.
"We did not play well but we won. Efficiency is the right word. We have had many games where we had so many chances to score but we didn't today [Sunday]. These games you have to win - and we did," Gomez told the club website.
"Hoffenheim defended aggressively. As a striker you need to be opportunistic in games this tight - and I was. I'm glad I made the difference."
Coach Jupp Heynckes stated that Hoffenheim, who are five points away from a relegation play-off, were fighting for their lives and therefore msde it difficult for his side to score many goals in the match.
"The game today was very difficult," he told the club website. "The opponent is in trouble. They have played incredibly courageously, aggressively. That was a workmanlike victory - it was not brilliant, it was not glamorous, but in return you get three points."
"We cannot win with three or five goals every time," he explained.
"We had to roll up our sleeves. It took us a while until the engine was warm. We have not had so many clear chances.
"In the second half, it was better, since we had the game under control. Overall, we had to work hard."
Bayern next play Fortuna Düsseldorf in the league before taking on Arsenal for the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.
