Thomas Muller delighted at Robert Lewandowski partnership at Bayern
Thomas Muller has praised his understanding with Bayern Munich teammate Robert Lewandowski.
Muller and Lewandowski are currently forming one of the most lethal attacking partnerships in Bundesliga history.
The duo has scored 40 goals between them in only 25 league games, and have nine matches left to break the all-time record of 54 goals, set by former Wolfsburg forwards Edin Dzeko and Grafite in the 2008-09 season.
"Lewy and I are in pretty good shape this term," Muller told Bild. "It's not like we march across the field playing one-twos. But we have a sense for each other and a very good feeling for goal situations."
The Germany international explained that it has been made easy for them by their teammates, who followed the instructions of coach Pep Guardiola to cross in the balls to the attacking duo.
"The coach demands that time and time again," Muller said. "Pep Guardiola knows how dangerous it can be for the opponent when Robert and I are in the box. I just shouldn't line up next to him as a second striker."
Next Wednesday, Bayern host Juventus in the second leg of their Champions League round-of-16 tie, with Guardiola's going into the match after a 2-2 draw in the first meeting in Italy.
"We're in a positive mood after the good first leg result, we play at home. But Juventus is always Juventus. We are not through yet. It will not be a walk in the park, but rather a tough test," Muller said, but added that Bayern are still playing for "the top prize" -- the Treble. "We still play for all titles," Muller added.
When asked about incoming boss Carlo Ancelotti, Muller replied: "The here and now matters. The further we progress, the hotter the season gets. That's the only focus right now."
