Bundesliga
Spieltag # 15

4 – BAYERN MUNICH ———— Ribery 22′, 77′, Robben pen 69′, pen 83′
1 – WERDER BREMEN ———— Rosenberg 52′

Three unanswered goals in the second half featuring a second of the contest from each of the dynamic “Robbery” duo sparked the record German champion as BAYERN MUNICH routed visiting northern rival WERDER BREMEN 4-1 in the end to reclaim the top spot in the Bundesliga.

Bayern Munich had not defeated Werder Bremen at home since 2005 but this did not prevent Austria international midfielder DAVID ALABA from winning a 50/50 ball in his own defensive third of the field immediately following a corner. The nicely developing 19-year-old then had a look and distributed a lovely diagonal pass into the path of France World Cup winger FRANCK RIBERY over on the left. The in-form Frenchman dribbled inside the semi-circle at the top of the box before blasting a right-footed, precision rocket in off the post to put the Bavarians in front after twenty-two minutes.

Werder Bremen entered the contest trailing Bayern Munich by just two points in the standings and were apt to make the most of the opportnity in this latest installment of the so-called Nord-Sued Derby at the once again sold-out Allianz Arena. Austria international striker MARKO ARNAUTOVIC, who has gone more than two months without a goal for die Werderaner, was withdrawn at halftime in favor of Sweden international striker MARKUS ROSENBERG, the 29-year-old veteran who spent all of last season out on loan to Racing Santander in Spain and had not scored in the Bundesliga since late August. Only seven minutes into the second half, Rosenberg rewarded trainer THOMAS SCHAAF’s faith and brought the visitors level after taking a short pass from former Bayern Munich attacker and Peru international CLAUDIO PIZARRO and lashing a left-footer, also from inside the semi-circle, past the outstretched Germany World Cup goalkeeper MANUEL NEUER in between the Bavarian sticks.

Bayern Munich trainer JUPP HEYNCKES looked down his bench and introduced Holland World Cup winger ARJEN ROBBEN for Alaba on the hour. It took a mere nine minutes for the Bavarians’ substitute to re-establish Bayern Munich’s lead after Werder Bremen defender ANDREAS WOLF clearly fouled Germany World Cup winger THOMAS MUELLER in the box and the Dangerous Dutchman dutifully dispatched the ensuing spot kick. A symbolic strike, then, as for the first time in thirteen matches in all competitions, Robben had tallied once again for the record German champions.

The one-time FC Chelsea and Real Madrid winger continued to exert his influence and issued a wonderful through ball for Germany World Cup striker MARIO GOMEZ in the 77th minute. The Bundesliga’s leading scorer accepted Robben’s pass and easily rounded Werder Bremen reserve goalkeeper SEBASTIAN MIELITZ, standing in for the absent Germany international TIM WEISE. Perhaps with a slightly better angle, Ribery arrived to finish for his second goal of the game and 10th for Bayern Munich in all competitions this term.

Shortly after Germany international midfielder AARON HUNT of Werder Bremen was shown a straight red card for a nasty, two-footed, studs-up challenge of Bayern Munich’s Germany international midfielder TONI KROOS in the 81st minute, Ribery was given a push in the box by die Werderaner’s SOKRATIS PAPASTATHOPOULOS, the Greece World Cup defender on loan in Germany for the season from Italian Serie A side CFC Genoa; Robben sent Mielitz the wrong way to score his fourth Bundesliga goal of this term and wrap up a very important as well as satisfying victory for Bayern Munich.
