Bayern Munich 4-3 Hertha Berlin: Robert Lewandowski scores four to seal thriller at the Allianz Arena

Bayern Munich had to rely on a Robert Lewandowski last-minute penalty to beat Hertha Berlin 4-3 in a thrilling Bundesliga clash on Sunday evening. 

The Polish striker, who topped all scoring charts during the 2019/20 season was the star of the show, scoring all the four as the defending champions bounced back to winning ways. 

Lewandowski opened the scoring on the 40th minute, a minute after Thomas Muller's header had been correctly ruled out for offside. 

They had to wait for the second half for their second goal, which came five minutes after the whistle, and it was the former Borussia Dortmund man.

The visitors however hit back with two quick goals, with Jhon Cordoba scoring the firsts, a beautiful strike, after winning the ball inside the box from a free-kick to plant a header inside the left post. 

Matheus Cunha then found himself one-on-one with the goalkeeper on the 71st minute, and he drilled the ball into the bottom right corner for the equalizer. 

Lewandowski returned once again to Bayern's rescue, getting to the end of a simple square pass from Muller to lash the ball inside the left post for a 3-2 lead. 

Hertha were not giving it up though and equalized five minutes later as Jessic Ngankam won himself enough space inside the box to meet a free-kick and produced a low header into the bottom left corner.

Lewandowski then scored his last and Bayern's winner from the spot in injury time to give the hosts the three points, which moved them to fourth on the standings.
