In Saturday’s match against Hoffenheim, Bayern finally treated their viewers to 90 minutes of football of the highest class. With the Champions League round of 16 just 11 days away, the reigning vice-champions of Europe put on a display that was dominant at both ends of the pitch for the entire match. Two goals in the opening 14 minutes and two more from Arjen Robben after the break confirmed the hosts’ attacking quality, but to be fair, Bayern were also excellent at the back; Hoffenheim were starved of chances in the attacking third, and Thomas Kraft had very little to do en route to his first-ever clean sheet in the Bundesliga.
