That makes playing football fun,” Thomas Müller said (as captured by “There could have been more goals in it for both sides. We’re very satisfied with the 4-0 win.”

Müller had two assist and was one of the primary providers to Robert Lewandowski, who had a hat trick.

“We showed from the first minute that we’d come to score goals and win. We wanted to attack early, create chances and score. Today, everything we planned worked out. Nevertheless, Köln continued to play good football,” Lewandowski. “It was certainly a good game for the fans watching on TV. That’s why we’re just happy. Today we played well as a team.”
