Bayern Munich open seven-point lead with win at Cologne

Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich moved seven points clear at the top as they extended their unbeaten league run to 12 games with a 3-0 victory at Cologne on Saturday.

Javi Martinez got the visitors underway with his first goal of the season, before Thomas Muller set up Juan Bernat to make it 2-0 with a deflected shot.

Franck Ribery claimed his first goal since returning from a thigh injury in the last minute, set up by Bernat.

Carlo Ancelotti's side were guaranteed to extend their advantage with a win at RheinEnergieStadion after second-placed RB Leipzig could only manage a 2-2 draw at Augsburg on Friday night

Bayern next take a 5-1 advantage against Arsenal into their Champions League round-of-16 second leg on Tuesday.
