Bayern Munich recently managed a 4-0 win over Schalke in a very good team performance. This has earned the praise of manager Guardiola, who has rated this match as the best Bayern Munich have played since his arrival.
Bastian Schweinsteiger opened the scoring for Bayern Munich before striker Mario Mandzukic doubled their advantage. Bayern Munich then increased the advantage with goals from Franck Ribery and Claudio Pizarro to go top of the table. They had recently lost the advantage to Borussia Dortmund, but their main rivals could only draw earlier in the day.
