Goals from Kingsley Coman, Alphonso Davies, and Robert Lewandowski were able to put a comfortable victory for Bayern Munich, who were also able to enjoy the biggest contribution from James Rodriguez through a hat-trick. As a result of this big victory, Bayern Munich were able to go top of the table. There was a lot of disappointment surrounding Bayern Munich after the exit from the Champions League, but this result has raised hope about a positive conclusion to the 2018-19 campaign.

Manager Niko Kovac claimed that this result was a positive way to respond to the Champions League exit at the hands of Liverpool. Bayern have been highly inconsistent this season but they have done extremely well to claw back a 10 point deficit to Borussia Dortmund – with a little bit of a help from the former table leaders. Now, Bayern have a lead on the goal difference front and they take on a disappointing Freiburg outfit just after the Euro 2020 qualifiers – in which most of the Bayern players will be taking part.
