Schweinsteiger is confident that Bayern will sustain its good run. REUTERS photoGoal-scorer Bastian Schweinsteiger insisted Bayern Munich had answered any doubts in the wake of its shock defeat by Leverkusen as the Bundesliga leader ran riot in its 3-0 win at Hamburg.
Bayern set a new German league record having won all five of its opening away league games with a 15-0 goal record as it opened a seven-point lead at the top of the table.
“It was important to provide some answers after the Bayer match, and we’ve not won that often in Hamburg recently. We were determined to do it today,” said Schweinsteiger who scored Bayern’s first.
With second-placed Schalke 04 suffering a shock 3-2 defeat at Hoffenheim, results this weekend helped Bayern as both third-placed Eintracht Frankfurt and Borussia Dortmund drew.
“It’s been a very good round of matches for us,” added the German superstar.
Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes was delighted with his team.
“The way we chalked up the victory was first class, it was outstanding,” he said.
