Watch: Coutinho scores outrageous hat-trick and provides two assists
Former Liverpool man Philippe Coutinho had an afternoon to remember as Bayern Munich thumped Werder Bremen 6-1 in Bundesliga, scoring a hat-trick and also providing two assists.
The most remarkable thing about the result was the fact the visitors were actually leading until the 45th minute thanks to Milot Rashica’s opener, but the floodgates opened after Coutinho equalised with a tap in just before half-time.
Robert Lewandowski still found time to put Bayern ahead before the break courtesy of a brilliant pass from Coutinho, and the hosts were relentless in the second half.
Coutinho bagged his second by lobbing the goalkeeper before Lewandowski continued his ridiculous goalscoring form to make it 4-1.
Thomas Muller then got in on the action courtesy of another Coutinho assist, and the Brazilian completed the scoring, and his hat-trick, with a trademark stunner after cutting in from the left onto his right foot.
