Bayern Munich's Thomas Muller breaks seemingly infinite goal drought

Other than the three points, perhaps the best piece of news to come out of Bayern Munich's 1-0 win at Borussia Moenchengladbach is the fact that Thomas Muller got on the scoresheet. It's his second league goal of the season, his sixth overall. By comparison, last year he notched his sixth in September, the year before it came in October and the one before that in September again. And now we're in March.

Muller's game isn't defined by goals and Ancelotti himself told me that even during the slump, the striker's positivity was astounding. But it's pretty obvious that having him chip in regularly takes pressure off the likes of Robert Lewandowski and Arjen Robben, which could be critical down the stretch.
