Thiago: Beating RB Leipzig worth more than three points

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 232

The midfield maestro, inspirational on the evening, felt Bayern Munich showed how much they wanted to retain their Bundesliga crown in Wednesday's dominant showing

The champions cruised to a 3-0 win at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday, Thiago scoring the first before setting up Xabi Alonso when the hosts doubled their lead.

Robert Lewandowski got Bayern's other goal from the penalty spot after Leipzig's Emil Forsberg had been sent off for a foul on Philipp Lahm.

Bayern's fifth straight Bundesliga win puts them three points clear of Leipzig and ensured they will sit top of the table at Christmas.

"It always means something when you win, but this is not just three points - we are getting a bit of distance with the second place," Thiago told reporters after the match.

"We want this first place and want to win the Bundesliga another time - that is what we are looking for.

"We are prepared for everything. We don't have any doubts about our team, we had a great attitude and got the win for all the people who came to see us.

"We are very happy with that and I was happy to [get a goal and an assist]. We wanted to win from the first minute and showed that." 

The Bundesliga now goes on a one-month mid-season break, with Bayern resuming their bid for a fifth consecutive title on January 20 away to Freiburg.
