Arjen Robben on song as Joshua Kimmich continues his hot streak

Carlo Ancelotti says the 70 good minutes Bayern Munich played against PSV are still not good enough.

Bayern Munich sealed their 14th Champions League home win in a row with a comfortable 4-1 triumph over 23-time Dutch champions, PSV Eindhoven on Wednesday.

Thomas Muller's opener plus a header apiece from Joshua Kimmich, Robert Lewandowski and Arjen Robben gave the hosts all three points, while Luciano Narsingh's goal just before half-time proved nothing more than a consolation for the visitors.

Jerome Boateng's journey to greatness with Bayern Munich was not easy

Craig Burley applauds Jerome Boateng for succeeding at Bayern after a tough time at Manchester City.
Bayern Munich are now winless in three matches, FC's Gab Marcotti addresses what is at the root of their lethargy.

Bayern Munich's 4-1 win over BATE Borisov in the Champions League group stage in December 2012 didn't exactly leave a lasting impression in Munich. The result was somewhat overshadowed by subsequent events, culminating in a historic Treble a year later.

Bayern are not in crisis but do seem to lack intensity under Ancelotti

Bayern Munich are now winless in three matches, FC's Gab Marcotti addresses what is at the root of their lethargy.
Carlo Ancelotti criticises Bayern Munich's attitude after the Bundesliga leaders were held by 10-man Eintracht.

Carlo Ancelotti began his Bavarian adventure with eight successive wins in all competitions -- the best start by a Bayern Munich coach in the club's illustrious history.

The media waxed lyrical, glorifying the Italian maestro's efforts in his early days. Finally released from shackles of three seasons of Pep Guardiola's perfectionist, possession-based football, Bayern were enjoying a newfound freedom, expressing themselves with style and panache. The general narrative was: "Pep who?"
