BERLIN – Kingsley Coman played his way out of the dog house on Sunday, as his first-half brace helped fire Bayern Munich back to the top of the Bundesliga with a comfortable 4-1 win at Fortuna Duesseldorf.
French winger Coman was involved in a training ground punch-up with team mate Robert Lewandowski earlier in the week, but he made the headlines for the right reasons on Sunday, keeping Bayern on course for a seventh successive league title.
Bayern, needing three points to stay top after rivals Borussia Dortmund edged to a nervy win over Mainz on Saturday, barely broke a sweat as they cruised to victory on the banks of the river Rhine.
Coman’s first goal was unintentional, his inswinging cross just evading Thomas Mueller on its way into the bottom corner with just 14 minutes on the clock.
If the opener was briefly and incorrectly credited to Mueller, there was no doubt about Coman's second, a well-placed finish at the end of a delightful 41st minute move.
