Freiburg 0 - 4 Bayern Munich: Thomas Mueller seals big win - FCNaija

Bayern Munich secured a morale-boosting three points on Sunday, with Corentin Tolisso scoring the pick of the bunch as the dominant Bavarians thumped SC Freiburg 4-0.

Jupp Heynckes demanded a response from his side after sharing the points against Hertha BSC last week and Bayern didn't disappoint their legendary manager.

After a shaky start, Bayern edged ahead in a bizarre manner a little over a quarter of the way through after Thomas Muller's cross hit Alexander Schwolow and ended up in the back of the net.

The second followed moments later, this time through a superb individual strike from Corentin Tolisso, who was able to pick out the top corner from all of 35 yards out.

Thiago Alcantara wasted a good chance as the league leaders closed in on a third of the afternoon, while Sandro Wagner was wayward with his headed attempt early in the second half.

Bayern wrapped up the points less than 10 minutes after the restart, however, with Wagner this time tucking home a loose ball following some neat interplay between Muller and Juan Bernat.

Muller was involved in the Bavarians' next attacking move, keeping the ball in play and picking out Bernat to head the ball wide at the back post.

The Germany international rounded off the scoring with a smart near-post finish once picked out by Joshua Kimmich from the corner, ensuring that Bayern returned to winning ways in style.

The Bavarians have now restored their 20 point lead at the top of the table and could, results permitting, secure their sixth consecutive Bundesliga title later this month.
