Things are still going well for FC Bayern München in the Bundesliga. On Sunday evening the champions registered a 5-0 home win against Eintracht Frankfurt and restored their 13-point lead. Thiago Alcántara set a new Bundesliga record by touching the ball 177 times, breaking the previous best of 155 set by team-mate Bastian Schweinsteiger. "It was our best home game so far," said coach Josep Guardiola. "It was a good step forward. We had good control, lots of possession and supplied our special attacking players again and again."

Winger Arjen Robben, who scored Bayern's third just minutes after being brought on, was very pleased with his return following a spell on the sidelines. "It is getting better and better from game to game," he said. "Sometimes you need patience. My injury is seven to eight weeks in the past now. I was not able to train a lot with the team. I am still having some difficulties adapting. I still need a little time." Bayern meet Arsenal FC in the last 16 with the opener in London on 19 Feburary.

Club Atlético de Madrid striker David Villa seems certain to miss his team's Copa del Rey semi-final first leg at Real Madrid CF on Wednesday after the 32-year-old suffered a hamstring strain during the 4-0 weekend win at home to Real Sociedad de Fútbol. 'El Guaje' opened the scoring in the 38th minute of Sunday’s victory for Los Rojiblancos but he limped out of the game shortly afterwards and will reportedly be out of action for around ten days. Yesterday's triumph for Diego Simeone's side saw the team from the banks of the River Manzanares take the outright Liga lead for the first time in 18 years.
