Bayern Munich 3-0 Bayer Leverkusen: Two goals from Thomas Muller and an Arjen Robben penalty seal a comfortable win 

  • Thomas Muller scored twice in a routine win for Bayern Munich 
  • Arjen Robben added the third for Pep Guardiola's side 
  • Bayern made it three wins out of three with a comfortable victory 

Thomas Muller celebrated his 200th Bundesliga match by netting twice as Bayern Munich eased past Bayer Leverkusen 3-0 to go top of the Bundesliga on Saturday.

A dazzling run by Douglas Costa, after a perfect 40-metre pass from Xabi Alonso, saw the Brazilian power past Roberto Hilbert before he cut the ball into the box for Muller to score after 26 minutes.

The hosts doubled their lead on the hour when the Germany forward grabbed his 76th league goal with a penalty. Dutchman Arjen Robben then made it 3-0 from the spot in the 71st.

Despite being without the suspended Jerome Boateng and his fellow central defenders Mehdi Benatia and Holger Badstuber through injury, Bayern were in complete control and could have added more goals with Leverkusen looking tired following their midweek Champions League qualifying victory over Lazio.

Both teams hit the woodwork in an exciting first half but the champions kept Leverkusen at bay in a one-sided affair after the break as the visitors lost in the league for the first time this season.

Bayern are two points ahead of Wolfsburg and Cologne. Borussia Dortmund, on six alongside Leverkusen, Mainz and Ingolstadt, host Hertha Berlin on Sunday.
