Bayern to toast Zagreb mauling at Oktoberfest

Munich - Pep Guardiola said Bayern Munich will toast their 5-0 rout of Dinamo Zagreb during Wednesday's annual visit to Oktoberfest after Robert Lewandowski's phenomenal goal-scoring run continued with a hat-trick.

Bayern romped to the top of Group F in the Champions League as Dinamo's 45-match unbeaten run was halted in emphatic fashion.

Lewandowski again ran riot at the Allianz Arena as Mario Goetze and Douglas Costa also netted to put Bayern top of their group following their 3-0 win at Olympiakos a fortnight ago before they face Arsenal away in three weeks.

Poland hot-shot Lewandowski has now scored 10 goals in his last three games after netting five in just nine spectacular minutes of Bayern's 5-1 hammering of Wolfsburg last Tuesday before claiming two more in Saturday's 3-0 win at Mainz.

Bayern host Borussia Dortmund on Sunday in a top-of-the table clash in the Bundesliga, but their Spanish head coach said they can enjoy a few beers at Munich's annual bumper beer festival before focusing on their next match.

The Spaniard put Lewandowski's success down to the width on Bayern's game from fleet-footed wingers Costa and Kingsley Coman.

"That was a good team performance over the whole 90 minutes," said Guardiola.

"Six points means we're on the right path. Tomorrow we're off to Oktoberfest, after that we'll have time to think about Dortmund.

"With Douglas Costa and Kingsley Coman our playing style is much better, we can play out wide more and the strikers have more chances.

"Even our counter-attack game was very good."
