MUNICH (AP) — Robert Lewandowski scored a late winner to give Bayern Munich a 1-0 victory over Real Madrid in the final of the preseason Audi Cup on Wednesday.
Douglas Costa sent in a free kick and Lewandowski steered the ball home from close range in the 88th minute. Both teams played without some top stars — Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo did not even come to Munich, while teammate Gareth Bale sat out the match.
A deflected shot from Thomas Mueller hit Madrid's post in the first half and goalkeeper Keylor Navas made some key saves to deny Bayern a bigger margin of victory.
