Bayern Munich 2 – Vfl Wolfsburg 0


========================================================
Vfl Wolfsburg striker ASHKAN DEJAGAH (24), the former Germany U-21 international who once refused to play a match against Israel citing the fact “everybody knows I am half Iranian”, eyes the ball while Bayern Munich’s Holland World Cup winger ARJEN ROBBEN does the same from the seat of his pants during the Bundesliga match at the sold-out Allianz Arena in Bavaria.

2 – BAYERN MUNICH ————— Gomez 59′, Robben 90+2′
0 – VFL WOLFSBURG

A decisive finish from the German top flight’s Torjaegermeister just before the hour and a fortunate strike in injury time allowed BAYERN MUNICH to dispatch visiting VFL WOLFSBURG 2-0 and remain on top of the Bundesliga table via goal-differential.

Trainer FELIX MAGATH’s Vfl Wolfsburg side arrived in Bavaria determined to defend and did a very nice job until Germany international midfielder TONI KROOS swung a free kick for Bayern Munich into the box. Two more players currently featuring in the German national team program, defender JEROME BOATENG and striker MARIO GOMEZ, rose in front hoping to connect with a header. And then Super Mario, who led the Bundesliga last season with 28 goals, showed why his instincts as a genuine poacher are, despite his detractors, truly top shelf as he swept a loose ball home for his 17th goal of this Bundesliga season in the 59th minute.

Holland World Cup winger ARJEN ROBBEN received credit for his fifth goal of this Bundesliga season after the clearance of Vfl Wolfsburg’s sliding, Switzerland international defender RICARDO RODRIGUEZ rebounded off his mid-section and ricocheted into the net; veteran Croatia international IVICA OLIC, who had come on as a substitute for Gomez with a quarter of an hour to play, made the goal for Bayern Munich, really, with his textbook lob of Switzerland World Cup goalkeeper DIEGO BENAGLIO.

Back on the title track in Bavaria, then.

Germany World Cup goalkeeper MANUEL NEUER, who was criticized publically by trainer Jupp Heynckes after having a disappointing match to start the second half of the Bundesliga season last week in North Rhine-Westphalia and responded by recording his 11th clean sheet in the German top flight this term, punches away a cross to stifle the Vfl Wolfsburg attack at the sold-out Allianz Arena in Bavaria.
