Watch: Philippe Coutinho lobs the goalkeeper to score a stunning goal
Philippe Coutinho scored a brilliant hat-trick as Bayern Munich thrased Werder Bremen – but one goal stood out above the rest.
The visitors had taken an early lead at the Allianz Arena through Milot Rashica before Coutinho tapped in an equaliser in the 45th minute.
Coutinho then showed great vision to set up Robert Lewandowski who put Bayern in front in first half stoppage-time.
However, the pick of the bunch was the Brazilian’s second goal of the game. A superb David Alaba pass found Coutinho in the area and the midfielder chipped the Bremen goalkeeper with an outrageous effort.

Lewandowski added their fourth goal before Coutinho set up Thomas Muller and the German put the result beyond any doubt.
The ex-Liverpool star then struck a trademark curling shot into the far corner to complete his hat-trick and make it 6-1 late on.
