Bayern Munich went 23 points clear at the top of the Bundesliga on Saturday with a 6-1 thrashing of Wolfsburg to record a 16th consecutive win and 49th match without defeat.
Naldo gave Wolfsburg a shock 17th-minute lead before Bayern, heading for a 24th national title, turned on the style.
Pep Guardiola’s (picture) side scored five times in 20 second-half minutes on Saturday and they have now hit 30 goals in eight games since the Bundesliga resumed after the winter break.
“We weren’t as dominant as in recent matches,” said Guardiola. “Wolfsburg were very well organised and very aggressive. They caused us a lot of problems in the first half and at the start of the second. But at the end of the day it was us who scored the goals we needed.”AFP
