Half-Time Report: Thomas Muller and David Alaba give Bayern Munich healthy lead

Goals from Thomas Muller and David Alaba give Bayern Munich a 2-0 half-time lead over hosts Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga.

Thomas Muller's 12th goal of the Bundesliga season has helped to give Bayern Munich a 2-0 half-time lead over hosting Werder Bremen this afternoon.

After a slightly timid start, Munich almost found the lead through Robert Lewandowski, who met a cross from Rafinha with his head, only to be denied by Raphael Wolf.

Munich's David Alaba was presented with another decent chance to put the visitors in front soon after, but he produced a comical air-shot with just the keeper to beat.

The league leaders went ahead in the 24th minute thanks to Muller, who opened the scoring with a curled effort with his left foot.

In a rather lifeless first-half display from Bremen, stand-in Bayern stopper Pepe Reina had to be on his guard to thwart a dangerous run from Clemens Fritz just before the close.

Alaba managed to atone for his earlier miss right on the stroke of the interval, when he stepped up to curl a standout free kick past Wolf and give Munich a 2-0 lead at the break.
