Choupo-Moting: A good game and a deserved win
What a great day for FC Bayern! On the club's 121st birthday, the record champions celebrated an emphatic 5-1 home win against 1. FC Köln on Saturday. "It's important to be satisfied with the 5-1 win. We deserved the victory even by that margin," said coach Hansi Flick after the game. In addition to the win, there was another pleasing piece of news: Serge Gnabry, who scored a brace, and Thomas Müller, who set up the important goal to make it 3-1 with his first touch of the game, celebrated extremely successful comebacks. "They were very important to us today as substitutes," said Flick. Reaction from fcbayern.com here.
