A huge day in the Bundesliga. Let's see if the boys can come away on top. Viva viva FC Bayern!

Bayern wins comfortably, with 2-0 your final score-line. Both goals should be here:
Gomez looking decidedly non-oafish on that first one, although he can also credit some slack defending from Kaiserslautern. Mueller breaks his cols streak with a precise header as well. For the first time since van Buyten went down, we're consistently generating threats from set pieces.
The score could have been more emphatic, as we missed a few one-on-one chances in the second half, but overall we did everything we had to. BMG is crushing Schalke, and BVB also won, so Bayern will probably be in second place tomorrow.
Four straight big games are on the horizon. We'll be back tomorrow with a look ahead. Sorry for the late video - crazy night for me last night. Thanks for reading.
