Bayern Munich have increased their advantage at the summit of the Bundesliga table to 11 points as they romped to a 2-0 win over Wolfsburg on Saturday.
The Bavarians were quick to put behind the disappointment of their midweek capitulation against Juventus to pick another vital three points that could help wrap up the German title earlier than usual.
Pep Guardiola’s side blew a two-goal lead in Turin to draw 2-2 in the Champions League on Tuesday, but second-half strikes from Kingsley Coman and Robert Lewandowski kept them well on course on the domestic front.
Though Bayern were not so commanding at the Volkswagen Arena, the Champions were good enough to make it 20 victories from 23 top-flight games this term against a Wolfsburg side they thrashed 5-1 in September, when Lewandowski scored all five of the hosts’ goals in nine second-half minutes.
Coman’s close-range volley finally broke the deadlock after 66 minutes, while Lewandowski’s 33rd goal of the campaign in all competitions settled matters 16 minutes from time, leaving Wolfsburg with just one win in their last 10 league games.
Borussia Dortmund have the chance of cutting Bayern’s lead when they file out against Hoffenheim on Sunday.
