Berlin (AFP) – Bayern Munich opened a three-point lead at the top of the Bundesliga table on Friday with a 3-1 win at bottom side Greuther Fuerth despite being a man down for most of the second-half after Benjamin Pavard was sent off.
First-half goals by Thomas Mueller and Joshua Kimmich put Bayern 2-0 up before Pavard was shown a straight red card just three minutes into the second-half.
Fuerth midfielder Sebastian Griesbeck scored an own goal before the hosts pulled one back when replacement striker Cedric Itten scored to delight the sell-out 11,730-strong home crowd.
