Bayern Munich once again produced an impeccable performance

Bayern Munich once again produced an impeccable performance in the Champions League group stages to secure a 2-0 win overDinamo Zagreb.

This ensured that the club returned to winning ways once again after they had suffered a shock 3-1 loss against Borussia Mönchengladbach during the weekend. Bayern Munich had no requirement to chase a victory against Dinamo Zagreb since they had already qualified for the last 16 of the competition as group winners. The real competition was just below Bayern Munich with Arsenal and Olympiakos fighting for the second spot.

Bayern were expected to field a number of youngsters for this game, but Guardiola was keen on putting the defeat against Mönchengladbach behind the team. Hence, the German outfit came up with a strong line-up and managed to win the game quite convincingly with a 2-0 score. There were numerous opportunities for the Bavarians to extend this advantage. Bayern finished the placed Arsenal and are likely to face teams like Paris St Germain or PSV Eindhoven in the last 16. Robert Lewandowski scored both the goals in this victory. He is on course to breaking the Champions League record after having scored seven goals in six games so far.

"A huge compliment to my team for this incredible group stage. The second half was better than the first. Now our focus is on the last three matches [before the winter break]. Sven Ulreich turned in a very, very good display today,” said Guardiola. "We had to be patient. It was crucial to take the lead. We're very pleased. It wasn't easy. The main thing was to win here," said the goalscorer Robert Lewandowski. "It's nice that we've won and that I've kept a clean sheet. I made two or three very good saves and was able to show my qualities," said goalkeeper Ulreich.
