Muller Ends 999-Minute Goal Drought As Bayern Regain Top Spot

Thomas Muller ended a 999-minute goal drought as Bayern Munich returned to the top of the Bundesliga with a comfortable win against struggling Wolfsburg.

Arjen Robben put the home side ahead when he cut inside from the right channel to curl into the far corner.

Robert Lewandowski tapped in when Arturo Vidal’s deflected shot fell to his feet inside the six-yard box, adding the third when he diverted Muller’s long-range shot past away keeper Diego Benaglio.

The victory was sealed when Germany forward Muller scored his first Bundesliga goal of the season before substitute Douglas Costa rifled in a cutback for the fifth.

“Of course I’m delighted for Thomas. But he does a good job on the pitch even when he doesn’t score,” said Bayern manager Carlo Ancelotti.

Bayern, aiming for a fifth successive Bundesliga title, started the weekend three points adrift of surprise leaders RB Leipzig.

But Ancelotti’s team moved back to the summit after the leaders, who lost 1-0 at bottom club Ingolstadt, suffered their first top-flight defeat.
