Sluggish Bayern struggle to beat Ingolstadt

Bayern Munich continued their 100 per cent winning start under Carlo Ancelotti by coming from behind to beat Ingolstadt in the Bundesliga's Bavarian derby.

Dario Lezcano became the first player to score against Bayern in competitive football this season, slotting Mathew Leckie's pass under Manuel Neuer.

But Robert Lewandowski equalised quickly with a chip, and Xabi Alonso drilled a second after half-time.

Rafinha sealed the win when he drove in his first goal since 2013.

Ancelotti is the first Bayern coach to start his reign with six straight wins since Otto Rehhagel in 1995.

His team have won their first three Bundesliga matches, in addition to one game each in the German Cup and the Champions League - and they beat Borussia Dortmund to secure the German Super Cup.

But this was arguably the most difficult of the matches that Ancelotti has faced at Bayern, with Neuer making two vital saves from Leckie and substitute Lukas Hinterseer missing a great second-half chance for the visitors before the win was finally ensured, according to BBC report.
