Bayern Coast To Victory

Goals from Jerome Boateng, Franck Ribery and Thomas Muller saw Bayern Munich coast to a comfortable 3-0 win in their German Bundesliga match against FC Augsburg at the Allianz-Arena on Saturday.

The win sees Bayern maintain their place at the top of the table with 32 points from 12 league games.

The opening 45 minutes saw Bayern in full control as they dictated terms from the outset and took a two goal lead into the half time break.

Bayern started like a house on fire and opened the scoring as early as the fifth minute when Jerome Boateng swivelled at the back post and smashed a shot high into the net, 1-0.

In the 14th minute Franck Ribery come within inches of doubling his side’s lead when he saw his 18-yard volley sail narrowly wide of the post.

Toni Kroos also tried his luck from 22-yards out in the 28th minute, but his powerful shot went centimetres wide of the target.

Bayern made their pressure tell for the second time three minutes before the break as Ribery expertly powered home a free-kick from the edge of the box, 2-0.

The second half was more of the same and Ribery should really have found his second of the night in the 52nd minute as he dribbled his way into the box before flashing a shot inches wide of the goal.

In the 72nd minute Mandzukic and Robben somehow contrived to miss a chance from a matter of yards after a great square ball by Alaba. The two seemed to get in each other's way as the chance withered out.

Bayern did find their third goal in the dying seconds of the game as Thomas Muller converted from the spot after the referee awarded a penalty for handball inside the box, 3-0.
