In a battle between first place and last place, there was never any chance of an upset at Allianz Arena.

Bayern tallied six goals and held Werder Bremen without a shot for the full 90 minutes, a first in Bundesliga history.

Pep Guardiola’s side enjoyed nearly 80% of possession in a match that was 4-0 at halftime. Werder Bremen had trouble even getting a touch on the ball as Xabi Alonso continued his possession dominance for Munich.

After setting the record for most touches in a Bundesliga match earlier this season, Alonso netted his first goal for Bayern, cleverly slotting a free-kick under the Bremen wall.

With the win, Bayern are four points clear at the top of the table, as they are yet to lose while scoring 21 goals in eight matches. For Werder Bremen, their woes continue as they sit winless at the bottom of the Bundesliga.

It’s tough to win games when you don’t shoot the ball.
