Football: Bayern Munich Start Title Defense With A Win
Bayern Munich began the Bundesliga title defense with a sensational win over Hoffenheim in Niko Kovac’s first match in charge of the German club.
Thomas Muller put Bayern Munich in the lead before Adam Szalai leveled the scoreboard. Robert Lewandowski reestablished the lead with a retaken penalty; he missed the first yet was reprieved by the VAR’s intervention, before Arjen Robben fixed the points.
Robben had been vigorously associated with the VAR show encompassing Lewandowski’s penalties, having jumped on the bounce, when the Polish striker missed with his first exertion.

However, VAR detected the former Chelsea player had entered the penalty territory too soon, and Lewandowski was requested to venture up once more, this time committing no error.
The VAR incident was not a one time thing. As, at 2-1, debutante Leon Goretzka took a shot which redirected off Muller into the net, however the goal was ruled out after a successful review.

It was then Muller who setup Robben’s goal to make it 3-1, the previous Real Madrid forward finding the upper left corner with a ground-breaking wrap up.
While it was a positive outcome for Bayern against the side which completed third last season, there was terrible news as France winger Kingsley Coman was injured.
