Bayern Munich 2-0 AEK Athens: Robert Lewandowski on target for Niko Kovac

Full Time: Bayern Munich 2-0 AEK Athens

Robert Lewandowski was at his clinical best as Bayern Munich brushed aside AEK Athens at the Allianz Arena.

Bayern Munich are within touching distance of the Champions League knockout stages after a Robert Lewandowski double secured a routine 2-0 Group E win over AEK Athens on Wednesday.

Benfica’s draw with Ajax in the group’s other game means that Niko Kovac’s side have opened up a two-point lead at the summit and know that a point against the Portuguese side in three weeks’ time will cement their place in the last 16.

Kovac has been under pressure this week after a disappointing 1-1 Bundesliga draw with Freiburg on Saturday, but he will be relieved that his side came through this clash unscathed.

They were far from their best against Marinos Ouzounidis’ side – who now have no chance of progressing – and were indebted to Lewandoswki’s 31st-minute penalty and smart finish in the second half to claim all three points.
