BERLIN (AP) – Philippe Coutinho scored his first Bundesliga goal and Robert Lewandowski kept his points in Bayern Munich's 4-0 win over the Cologne side on Saturday.
Lewandowski scored the first two goals in the third and 48th minute, bringing the score to nine in five games.
The visitors played the last half hour with 10 men after Kingsley Ehizibue was sent off for overthrowing Coutinho just as the Brazilian was about to score at 59.
Coutinho dusted off the ball to score a penalty, but had to do it again as many players stormed the area while he held it.
He was not slow in his second question and scored for the first time since joining Barcelona on loan.
Coutinho rode Ivan Perisic in 73rd position, with Bayern rising at the top, a point ahead of Leipzig, who were due to visit Werder Bremen at the end of the match.
Hertha Berlin defeated teammate Paderborn 2-1 in their first win of the season, Bayer Leverkusen bounced back from their Champions League disappointment with a 2-0 win over Union Berlin, and Augsburg regained a draw at 1 x 1 in Freiburg.
