Lewandowski: We knew we had to hit the gas

FC Bayern München striker Robert Lewandowski believes that the club played with real intensity and purpose throughout the entirety of Saturday’s 3-1 away win over FC Augsburg.

Lewandowski’s brace and a strike from Arjen Robben gave the Bavarians a comfortable 3-0 lead, before Koo Ja-Cheol scored a consolation for the home side at WWK Arena.

The result sees Carlo Ancelotti’s side record their fourth victory in a row in all competitions, and maintains Bayern’s two-point advantage at the top of the table over the Bundesliga’s surprise package, RB Leipzig.

Nonetheless, Lewandowski, whose brace came from two assists from Robben, expressed his delight at the comprehensive nature of the performance against Fuggerstadter.

He told the club’s official website: “We played very well from the off. We knew we had to hit the gas and take three points. We controlled the entire match well.

“I’ve always known there might be moments when I don’t score but it worked out for me again today.”

The German champions next travel to face PSV Eindhoven in a UEFA Champions League Group D tie on Tuesday.
