0 – VFL WOLFSBURG
2 – BAYERN MUNICH ——— Mandzukic 36′, Robben 90+2′

A sensational overhead bicycle kick combined with another suffocating performance on the defensive side of the ball permitted visiting record German champions BAYERN MUNICH to whitewash host VLF WOLFSBURG 2-0 and continue barreling down the road towards yet another title in this historic 50th Bundesliga season.

Bayern Munich continued with the sort of stuff that saw the Bavarians contest nearly four hours worth of football before the stingy side of trainer JUPP HEYNCKES finally conceded a shot on target by Vfl Wolfsburg’s Brazil international midfielder DIEGO, who finally tested Germany first choice MANUEL NEUER with roughly a quarter of an hour to play at the Volkswagen Arena.

Returning for the first time to the old stomping grounds where he scored 20 goals in 54 Bundesliga games for Vfl Wolfsburg, in-form Croatia international MARIO MANDZUKIC marked the occasion by netting a spectacular overhead bicycle kick in the 36th minute. The 26-year-old striker, for whom Bayern Munich paid a transfer fee of 13.0 million Euros this past summer, struck after TONI KROOS floated a set piece to the back post that fellow Germany international midfielder BASTIAN SCHWEINSTEIGER was able to nod backwards. With 15 goals in 19 Bundesliga games for the Bavarians this term, Mandzukic is tied with Bayer Leverkusen’s 2010 World Cup striker Stefan Kiessling for top spot in the German first division.

Holland World Cup winger ARJEN ROBBEN closed out Bayern Munich’s fifth consecutive Bundesliga victory on the trot by scoring his first goal in the German top flight in almost ten whole months. After coming on as a substitute in the second half, the Dangerous Dutchman latched onto a lovely cross from influential Germany World Cup winger THOMAS MUELLER and lashed a vicious left-footer past Vfl Wolfsburg’s Switzerland international number one DIEGO BENAGLIO two minutes into injury time. Robben, who scored 12 goals in 24 Bundesliga games for the Bavarians last season, had not tallied in the German league since the 4-1 triumph over 1.FC Koeln early last May on the final day of the 2011/12 domestic campaign.
