Thomas Müller played in the more advanced role in the center attacking midfield against Hamburg with Arturo Vidal behind him. But, with the opponent being the obviously overmatched Hamburg, Müller's objective was to do what he does best: find space and use it.
His first goal on the day was just a typical smashing header. After Douglas Costa showed off his speed on the sideline, Müller charged into the open space in front of Hamburg centerback Johan Djourou and met the cross with his head.
"That was a super team performance," Müller said. "Once again, we've proved we're still hungry despite all our success in recent years, and we don't ease off even when we're 3-0 up. We want to maintain this mentality."
The second goal was a thing of beauty. After Robert Lewandowski abused Djourou again out wide, he split the remaining HSV defense and played the ball into space. (There's that word again.) Der Raumdeuter took a touch to gracefully round the goalkeeper and passed the ball into the back of the net.
