WOLFSBURG, Germany, April 17, 2021, SPA -- Bayern Munich teenager Jamal Musiala scored twice in the first half to steer them to a nervous 3-2 victory at third-placed VfL Wolfsburg on Saturday as they moved seven points clear at the top of the Bundesliga with five matches left to play.
Three days after their Champions League quarter-final elimination by Paris St Germain, the Bavarians made almost certain of their first silverware of the season after RB Leipzig stumbled to a 0-0 draw against Hoffenheim on Friday, Reuters reported.
Minutes after the end of Saturday's game Bayern coach Hansi Flick, who has led the club to six titles in the past 10 months, announced he had decided to leave at the end of the season.
Musiala put Bayern in front after 15 minutes when he weaved his way through three defenders in the box and fired home.
The 18-year-old Germany midfielder netted another with a looping header in the 37th to make it 3-1 and become the youngest player in Bundesliga history to score six league goals.
Musiala came close to a hat-trick a little later but his effort was cleared off the line.
