Dutch forward Arjen Robben returned to action in style on Saturday as he scored the opening goal in Bayern Munich’s 4-0 demolition of FC Koln.
The big win is incidentally Bayern’s 1000th win in the Bundesliga as the Bavarians maintained their perfect run in the League this season.
Interestingly, it was the visitors that registered the first attempt at goal in the opening minutes when Simon Zoller took a shot from range, only to see his effort safely held by Munich stopper Manuel Neuer.
Robben gave his first go at goal in the seventh minute, but there was no smile for him following the heroics of Timo Horn in the Koln goal.
From then, the German champions did not relent as they continued to mount sustained pressure on the away side, and their efforts finally paid off when Robben took hold of a loose ball in the area to round Horn and make it 1-0 to the hosts.
Just before half time, Bayern’s lead was doubled, this time it was Arturo Vidal who drilled home the shot in the 40th minute.
Munich continued their dominance in the second half and they need not wait for too long as Lewandowski increased the tally.
The hosts capped the victory off with a fourth goal 13 minutes from time, thanks to a calm Muller who slotted away a penalty following a double-push inside the area from Dominic Maroh and Marcel Risse.
