Bayern Munich beat Bayer Leverkusen 4-0 on Friday to end a four-game Bundesliga losing streak and move into second place.
Jamal Musiala performed a confidence-boosting display ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League game against Viktoria Plzen and next weekend’s Bundesliga showdown against Borussia Dortmund.
Musiala set up Leroy Sane for their first goal in the third minute to soothe anxieties at the Allianz Arena. The Bavarians were anxious to bounce back after their recent downturn in form and worst winless streak in 20 years.
The 19-year-old offensive midfielder terrorised Leverkusen’s defence and scored in the 17th minute following a one-two with Thomas Mueller.
He assisted Sadio Mane to break his five-game goal drought by picking him out in the box for his first home goal.
Musiala has five league goals and three assists.
Hradecky’s mistake in the area set up Mueller for Bayern’s fourth goal in the 84th minute.
Bayern now has 15 points in the Bundesliga, two behind leaders Union Berlin, who play Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday.
Bayer Leverkusen, which plays Porto on Tuesday, fell to 16th in the Bundesliga.
After finishing third last season, Gerardo Seoane’s club has won only one of eight Bundesliga games.
