Bayern Munich cruised to 4-1 victory at Hertha Berlin on Sunday, scoring twice in each half, to stay firmly in control of the title race and restore their six point lead at the top.

Corentin Tolisso, who had seen a superb volley ruled as off side in the second minute, did everything right in the 25th, connecting with a Kingsley Coman cross to head the champions into the lead.

Thomas Muller doubled it on the stroke of halftime, stretching to flick in a Joshua Kimmich free kick as Bayern cruised towards their seventh league win from their last eight matches.

A mistake by Hertha keeper Alexander Schwolow allowed Leroy Sane to slip in and bag Bayern’s third goal of the afternoon in the 75th and Serge Gnabry made it 4-0 four minutes later, cutting in from the right to slip the ball through the keeper’s legs.

The hosts, who have won just one of their last five league matches and remained in 13th place, got a late consolation goal through Jurgen Ekkelenkamp 10 minutes from the end.

Bayern, who have now scored at least once in a record 67 consecutive Bundesliga matches, are on 49 points, six ahead of second-placed Borussia Dortmund who beat Hoffenheim 3-2 on Saturday.
