Robert Lewandowski and Benjamin Pavard got the goals as Bayern Munich beat Union Berlin 2-0 in their first game since the coronavirus pause.
Bayern Munich recommenced their Bundesliga title defence with a 2-0 win at Union Berlin, with Robert Lewandowski reaching the 40-goal mark for a fifth successive season on his return from a knee injury.
Hansi Flick's men had been put under a little pressure by Borussia Dortmund's 4-0 thrashing of Schalke on Saturday to go within a point of the pacesetters, but Bayern picked up where they left off before the coronavirus pause - Lewandowski and Benjamin Pavard securing the points.
Although Bayern were guilty of a somewhat slow start, once they found their groove the champions played some fine football and were deserving of the lead when Lewandowski - who likely would have missed most of the rest of the season were it not for the lengthy hiatus - rolled home his penalty with 40 minutes played.
