Thanks to a supremely comfortable 3-0 Bavarian derby victory over FC Augsburg, Bayern stretched their lead at the top of the Bundesliga standings and also set a new league record: Munich are now undefeated in their last 37 fixtures. “I’m totally delighted about my goal and the fact we’ve cracked the record. Congratulations to everyone at Bayern,” declared Jérôme Boateng after setting his side on the road to victory with the early opening goal. “We controlled the game and created a number of big chances,” a satisfied Pep Guardiola summarised.
Reaction to Bayern v Augsburg
Pep Guardiola: “We started well, and the early goal made it easier. But we didn’t play so well after that. It was better in the second half, we controlled the game and created a number of big chances. I hope my players come back fit after the international break.”
Franck Ribéry: “The goal was good for the team and for me. We did well, we were aggressive and played better than we have done recently. The game in Dortmund is a very important one. It's a massive chance. We have to keep it up now. We need to keep working and winning, and extending the record.”
Jérôme Boateng: “I’m totally delighted about my goal and the fact we’ve cracked the record. Congratulations to everyone at Bayern, including Jupp Heynckes for last season. It was a fantastic performance from the whole team. We can rightly be happy.”
Markus Weinzierl (FC Augsburg coach): “FC Bayern are unbelievably strong. We’ve seen for ourselves today just how they impose themselves on the play and are so composed on the ball. It’s unbelievable. Letting in the early goal drove a coach and horses through our plan. Overall we could have given a better account of ourselves. I felt we lacked a little courage at times.”
Daniel Baier (FC Augsburg captain): “We did well enough after going behind but then we conceded the second from a free-kick. We should have made more of our chances on the break in the second half, but otherwise we were well beaten today.”
