Bayern Munich's 4-0 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt today at the Commerzbank Arena was a fantastic match to have as the guys head off to the international break. Bayern controlled the contest, and the result was never in much doubt. Hey, even Xherdan Shaqiri got on the scoreboard for FC Bayern.
The victory leaves Bayern seven points clear at the top of the table ahead of Sunday's games, but the club has rolled into the international break unbeaten in all competitions. With all of the injuries facing Pep Guardiola and his team, this is an impressive feat that shouldn't be understated.
Before we get into my suggestions for the man of the match, you must go watch Manuel Neuer do fun things with the ball. He's the best goalkeeper in the world, folks. Enjoy it.
Thomas Müller: Well, of course, he has to be included on this list. He'll also probably be the runaway favorite here. Müller was rested midweek against Roma, and he came out firing on all cylinders today. The goals were all well deserved
Jerome Boateng: The centerback set a Bundesliga record in the match. Boateng became the first player in Bundesliga history to go unbeaten in 50 straight league games. This is an incredible feat and is as much a testament to the team as it is to Boateng's fantastic play over the last several years.
Dante: The Brazilian has taken some grief over the last 18 months as he combined adjusting to Guardiola' style of play with a big dip in form. However, he's been improving week after week, and I thought he was superb today against Frankfurt. Here's hoping he keeps up the hard work.
