Julian Green scored his first competitive goal for Bayern Munich as the German giants advanced in the DFB Pokal with a 3-1 defeat of FC Augsburg.
Philipp Lahm pushed Bayern in front shortly after the whistle. Receiving the ball on the right, the legendary right-back nutmegged an oncoming defender in the box before firing low into the far corner.
The United States international added Bayern’s second just before the break — redirecting his cushioned header of a Thomas Muller cross past goalkeeper Marwin Hitz on 41 minutes.
Augsburg would not go away easily. And Ji Dong-Won halved the deficit with a strike of his own in the 68th minute. But David Alaba added the capper as the defending Bundesliga champions rolled into the third round of the competition.
