Saturday's effortless 4-0 victory over Schalke sees Bayern move 15 points clear in the Bundesliga standings, as the Reds kept their fourth consecutive clean sheet since the winter break. David Alaba's penalty and Bastian Schweinsteiger's free-kick set FCB on their way, before Alaba and Mario Gomez wrapped it up after half-time. “We all really enjoyed it," said the two-goal Austrian, speaking for the team.
Reaction to Bayern v Schalke 04:
Jupp Heynckes: “Obviously we were aware of results elsewhere today. It wasn't easy for us in the first 20 minutes against a defensively good Schalke team, but once we'd scored the first goal, I knew our opponents would have to take risks. From then on, we were authoritative and composed. The players I sent out today proved they have desire and enthusiasm for their football. It's a real pleasure for me to be working with this team at the moment. The players have one major target this season, and it's the German championship. But we still have to keep working on our game, because there are always things you can make even more perfect.”
