A solid performance by the German squad, avenging their disgraceful 1-5 debacle from a couple of years ago. Lukas Podolski may rot on the bench at Bayern, but gave an impressive performance, crowning it with a goal in front of his "home" crowd. The dummkopf should have gone just about anywhere but Bayern to get playing time.

Also making a return to the squad was David Odonkor, who had an immediate impact, scoring shortly after coming on.
