Thomas Mueller scored the first goal while Arjen Robben netted the last for the night as Bayern Munich finally returned to winning ways Wednesday night in the UEFA Champions League.
The Bavarians hit PSV 4-1 at the Allianz Arena to banish away their poor form which had seen them go three games without any win.
The hosts were firing on all cylinders from the blast of the whistle and it was only a mater of time before they got in front; scoring in the 13th minute through Muller, who forced Jeroen Zoet into a save from a corner but stabbed home on the rebound.
Eight minutes later Bayern doubled their lead through Joshua Kimmich, who latched on to David Alaba’s pinpoint cross and, with the PSV defence in disarray, nodded the ball into an empty net.
Towards the end of the first half, however, Phillip Cocu’s charges enjoyed a bright spell as they saw a goal chalked off for offside before getting onto the scoresheet four minutes before the break through Luciano Narsingh’s powerful shot off the post.
Both sides weight in with dangerous chances early in the second half but Carlo Ancelotti’s side went on to extend their lead just before the hour, Robert Lewandowski getting onto a goalmouth rebound and heading home.
Bayern finished off by adding icing on the cake, as Thiago Alcantara’s lofted cross into the box fell to Arjen Robben, who nodded the ball into the middle of the goal and beyond the goalkeeper.
