A brace each for Robben and Lewandowski, and one apiece for Ribéry and Weiser - FC Bayern ran up half-a-dozen goals on their first-ever Bundesliga visit to Paderborn, making the dressing room a "very satisfied" place, as Robert Lewandowski said after the final whistle: "After the Champions League in midweek, we knew we'd have to play very well today." Pep Guardiola praised his team for "taking it very seriously." And Robben personally thanked Thomas Müller: "The penalty was a gift from him."

Reaction to Paderborn v Bayern

Pep Guardiola: "We took it very seriously indeed and let them have very few chances. It was hard work against a back five. I said beforehand that I thought Paderborn would stay in the Bundesliga, and now I'm sure of it."

Robert Lewandowski: "After the Champions League in midweek, we knew we'd have to play very well today. We're very satisfied. It's obviously great when you score a goal or two, but I'd have liked another in the second half."

Arjen Robben: "The penalty was a gift from Thomas. We talked about it over lunch before the game. Basti said: You're among the leaders in the scoring charts, so if we get a penalty you should take it. I reminded Thomas about that and he let me have the penalty, so I want to say thank-you to Thomas."

André Breitenreiter (Paderborn coach): "The penalty was the decisive situation. After that there's no defending against a team that moves the ball so well. We've played the best team in the world with the best coach in the world."
