Robben at the heart of things again, escaping Bruckner on the right before picking out the run of Muller towards the near post, as the striker turns it in past Kruse to really put this game to bed.
78′Goal Mario Götze
Robben makes an incredible run, beating Bruckner and opening up the defence. He cuts it back for Muller, but Kruse makes a fine diving stop to keep his effort out, only for Gotze to tap in the rebound.
14′Goal Robert Lewandowski
14′Gotze gets the ball and forces a pass in to Lewandowski at the top right of the area. The striker’s first touch is superb, chipping it past the defender creating just enough room for a shot. He hits it splendidly on the half-volley and Kruse can only manage to get a slight touch on it as it cannons into the top corner.
8′Goal Mario Götze
Wonderfully-worked goal by Bayern, showing their class in the build-up. Robben picks out the run of Muller, who draws a defender and does incredibly well to lay it off for Gotze. The midfielder picks up the ball with the goal at his mercy and makes no mistake, slotting home just inside the near post.
