Bayern wins, keeps lead

Tuesday, March 06, 2018

BERLIN - Runaway Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich won 4-0 at Freiburg on Sunday and veteran strikers Claudio Pizarro and Mario Gomez scored to boost their chances of World Cup recalls.

Bayern, chasing a sixth successive title, opened up a 20-point lead over Schalke 04 with nine games to go.

Peruvian forward Pizarro became the fourth oldest player to net in the Bundesliga when he gave Cologne an early lead at home to VfB Stuttgart before Germany's Gomez replied with a brace to lead the visitors to a 3-2 win.

Pizarro, 39, put bottom-of-the-table Cologne ahead after seven minutes and has now scored at least one Bundesliga goal in each of the last 20 years.

Cologne dominated, threatened a second but were floored when Gomez, 32, scored twice in three minutes before halftime.

Andreas Beck added a third for Stuttgart in the second half before a Milos Jojic free kick gave the Billy Goats a glimmer of hope five minutes from time but it was not enough.
