Bayern Munich was on top of their game on Tuesday night, as they put four past Olympiakos, the Victory was a Milestone for the Germany international.
Thomas Muller was on target as Bayern Munich cruised to their fourth Champions League win this season as Thomas Muller toppled Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gonzales Raul to reach a new record.
Thomas Muller netted Bayern Munich’s third goal in their huge 4-0 victory against Olympiakos on Tuesday night and the win turned out to be Thomas Muller’s 50th Champions League win and he is the youngest player ever to chive this landmark.
Douglas Costa, Robert Lewandowski and Kingsley Coman also found the back of the net for the Bundesliga side.
Thomas Muller made his Champions League debut in March 2009, and his one goal contribution in tuesday’s win against Olympiakos at Allianz Arena brought the goal tally to 4-0.
“It means that I’ve played with a very good team in the past five years,” Thomas Muller said on fcb.tv.
Bayern Munich Captain Philipp Lahm said jokingly:”He owes us a round of drinks, because we played our part in it.”
Thomas Muller said in reply: “If we were to buy a round of drinks every time a Bayern player breaks a record, we’d rarely be sober.”
The win guaranteed a the Bundesliga side a spot in the knockout stage and Group F winners with one game at hand, however there was one bad string for Bayern as Badsturber was sent off for a professional foul on Nigerian Born Brown Ideye in the begining of the second half.
The sporting executive of Bayern Munich Matthias Sammer blamed the referee Jonas Eriksson on the poor decision.
“I did not see a clear foul,” Sammer said. “He’s a bit too late, and then [Ideye] falls to the floor. I can’t understand it. I wouldn’t have awarded a foul. He milked it, and you should not fall into trap.”
While Guardiola refused to criticise the referee Erikson, but he said the decision to send Badsturber off would be costly for Bayern, considering that he just returned from injury as he was making his first start since April.
