Berlin, Sept 24, 2021 (AFP) - Bayern Munich opened a three-point lead at the top of the Bundesliga table on Friday with a 3-1 win at bottom side Greuther Furth despite being a man down for most of the second half after Benjamin Pavard was sent off.

First-half goals by Thomas Muller and Joshua Kimmich put Bayern 2-0 up before Pavard was shown a straight red card just three minutes into the second half.

Furth midfielder Sebastian Griesbeck scored an own goal before the hosts pulled one back when replacement striker Cedric Itten scored to delight the sellout 11,730-strong home crowd.
