Muller lauds ‘flawless’ Bayern

Bayern München striker Thomas Muller has described his side's performance as "flawless" after they cruised to a 3-1 over VfL Wolfsburg in the second round of the DFB-Pokal on Tuesday. 

Muller himself played an instrumental role in eliminating the reigning champions as he scored in the 20th minute before netting his second goal of the match 14 minutes later. But, it was Douglas Costa who got things started for Bayern after he opened the scoring in the 15th minute. 

Wolfsburg forward Andre Schurrle claimed a consolation goal in stoppage time, but it was Muller who was left to praise his side for a job well done. 

"You always intend to do this and that, but then you have to go out and do it on the pitch. In the first half we were flawless," Muller told reporters. "We made very, very few technical mistakes and we controlled the ball well, with sustained attacking moves.

"We just played superbly and defended with discipline. It was just like we wanted it."

Bayern will find out who their round of 16 opponents will be following the draw on Sunday.
