Ribery brace breaks records

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 965

Franck Ribery made history with two goals as Bayern Munich beat Niko Kovac's former club Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday.

Franck Ribery became the oldest Bayern Munich player to score more than one goal in a Bundesliga game after he netted twice in a 3-0 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt.

Aged 35 years and 259 days, the former France international slotted in Bayern's opener midway through the first half before adding a second with a scuffed finish late on.

Saturday's performance could have been even more memorable for Ribery, had Robert Lewandowski not failed to control the veteran's pass at the culmination of a superb run.

Bayern's win was capped off in style in the 89th minute with Rafinha's fortuitous effort making it 3-0, which also brought up a record for coach Niko Kovac.

The Bundesliga champions have now won their last five league fixtures, and it is the first time Kovac – in his either his playing or managerial career – has claimed five successive wins in Germany's top division.

The victory means Bayern end 2018 six points behind leaders Borussia Dortmund, and three above third-place Borussia Monchengladbach.
