On another historic day for Jamal Musiala, the kid put Bayern Munich one step closer to a fresh Bundesliga title against Wolfsburg. 

Bayern Munich may not have Robert Lewandowski to score their goals, but they do have Jamal Musiala to take his place. At least for the time being, the youngster keeps producing amazing performances that keep breaking records. Today, he became the youngest player in Bundesliga history to reach six goals in the competition. It all happened during a five-goal thriller between Wolfsburg and Bayern Munich at Volkswagen Arena. RB Leipzig’s draw yesterday meant they could move seven points clear at the top of they defeated Wolfsburg today.

Hansi Flick wasn’t playing around today, especially after getting eliminated in the Champions League. His most recent goal against Union Berlin gave us a glimpse of his dribbling skills inside the box. But Musiala wasn’t done showcasing this talent. At around the 15-minute mark, he created a similar piece of skill that left Union Berlin defenders speechless. Another dribbling extravaganza keeps showing us how promising this lad truly is. 

Musiala is involved in all Bayern goals. 

Most goals in this match happened in the first half, Musiala was the man who created the chance for Choupo-Moting to score the second of the evening. Weghorst responded with a beautiful goal only minutes after that. However, Bayern Munich wanted more and Jamal Musiala was there to deliver. He scored an unusual header after getting a slightly elevated cross from Thomas Muller.

In the second half, Phillip scored another for Wolfsburg early on but those were all the goals we saw. Flick doesn’t want to risk ending his wild run at Bayern Munich with no titles this season. He wanted to protect the result at all cost and decided to park the bus a little bit. With this win, Bayern Munich moves seven points past RB Leipzig at the top of the Bundesliga table. Musiala is quite the discovery from Bayern Munich. This kid is going places, mark our words.
