Rampant Bayern thrill Ancelotti

The 30-year-old was in goal for Bayern's 8-0 thrashing of Hamburg at the Allianz Arena, a result which saw him hit a century of clean sheets in 183 matches.

That mark easily bested the previous record of 232 matches, held by Werder Bremen's Oliver Reck.

It was a milestone-filled afternoon for Bayern, who rolled to victory in Carlo Ancelotti's 1,000th match as a manager.

Robert Lewandowski notched a hat trick for the hosts, who also got a brace from Kingsley Coman and goals from Arturo Vidal, David Alaba and Arjen Robben.

Bayern sit at the top the Bundesliga table, five points clear of second-placed RB Leipzig.
