Bayern Munich won 5-2 in Darmstadt, with a double from Jamal Musiala, Saturday afternoon, during the 26th day of the German championship, a week after having scored eight goals in Mainz.

This victory allows Thomas Tuchel’s players to temporarily return to seven points behind the undefeated leader, Bayer Leverkusen, who will play Sunday in Fribourg.

Darmstadt opened the scoring with Tim Skarke (28th), but the bottom team couldn’t believe it for long. Musiala equalized eight minutes later then Harry Kane, who had provided the assist for the opening goal, gave the Bavarians the lead just before the break.

With eight games remaining, the Englishman, top scorer in the Bundesliga (31 goals), must still score ten times to equal the record of his predecessor at Bayern Robert Lewandowski (41 goals in 2020/21).

Musiala achieved his double shortly after the hour mark by eliminating three defenders (63rd). The young German, 21, has ten goals this season.

Munich was definitively sheltered by Serge Gnabry (73rd) and by the young Mathys Tel (90 3). Darmstadt scored the last goal through Oscar Vilhelmsson in the last seconds. Mainz (16th) achieved a significant success in maintaining against Bochum (2-0).
