A powerful shot by Douglas Costa that got in the corner of the goalmouth of Darmstadt’s goal was enough for Bayern to take the three points in a match that had some complications. Bayern’s visit to the bottom team’s stadium wasn’t easy at all but in spite of everything they will confront Leipzig as leaders of the Bundesliga. It will be then when the Bavarian team will have their chance to distance themselves from their direct rival. All this before Christmas break.
“The score is clear: It hasn’t been an easy match for us. Darmstadt have been awesome. The most important thing in any case is that the leadership is ours again.”, stressed Carlo Ancelotti minutes after ending the match. Now, with the three points with them, Bayern will fight to beat Leipzig and close the first stage of the season in conditions of being able to fight for all possible titles on their way back to the second stage.
