Philippe Coutinho scored his first Bundesliga goal and Robert Lewandowski kept his scoring run going in Bayern Munich’s 4-0 win over 10-man Cologne on Saturday.

Lewandowski grabbed the first two goals to take his league-leading tally to nine in five games.

The visitors played the last half-hour with 10 men after Kingsley Ehizibue was sent off for bringing down Coutinho just as the Brazilian was about to score in the 59th.

Coutinho dusted himself off to score from the penalty spot, but had to do it again as too many players had encroached in the area while he was taking it.
