Bayern Munich Vs. Borussia Dortmund: Thomas Müller Doubles Bayern Lead

Mario Mandzukic isn't just scoring goals. He's providing brilliant service that lead to goals, too.

After the early pinpoint cross to Thomas Müller early on in the match, Mandzukic displayed his brilliant passing ability again. A perfectly weighted ball put Arjen Robben through the Borussia Dortmund back line. The Dutch winger beat Roman Weidenfeller, but saw his shot bang off the post. Unfortunately for BVB, Thomas Müller was lurking in the penalty area and put the ball in the top of the net to double Bayern Munich's lead after only 11 minutes.

Bayern are exposing a weak midfield pairing of Moritz Leitner and Ilkay Gundogan and playing some gorgeous football while doing it. Without Sebastian Kehl and Sven Bender, BVB are down to their non-preferred pairing. Jürgen Klopp has his work to do to get his side back into this match. The Allianz Arena is rocking, and the Bayern supporters are looking for payback after five straight losses to this BVB side.
