Late stunner seals win

Afp
Friday, January 31, 2014

BERLIN - Two late goals preserved champions Bayern Munich's record unbeaten league run yesterday as they came from behind to beat Stuttgart 2-1 and extend the streak to 43 matches.

Thiago Alcantara's stunning winner, which also marked his first goal for Bayern, was a superb volley in the third minute of injury time giving the champions their 16th win in 18 matches.

Bayern were 14 minutes from seeing their record run — dating back to October 2012 — come to an end before Claudio Pizarro's equaliser cancelled out Vedad Ibisevic's first-half goal.

This was a re-arranged fixture from December when Bayern were in Morocco winning the Club World Cup, but the Bavarians did not have things their own way for a change.

Bayern are on a host of league records — this was their 28th away match without defeat.

And with 50 points from 18 games, coach Pep Guardiola has made the best start of any coach in Bundesliga history.
