What We Learned from Stuttgart vs. Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich made it two straight wins to start the second half of the Bundesliga campaign on Sunday as they beat Stuttgart 2-0 at the Mercedes-Benz Arena. The league leaders defeated fellow Bavarian side Greuther Fuerth by the same margin last week, and in a more traditional derby match against the Baden-Wuerttemberg-based VfB, again came out winners.

It wasn't an easy match for Bayern, who were frustrated by the hosts' high offside trap and referee Florian Meyer's occasionally questionable decisions. But Mario Mandzukic put the visitors ahead after 50 minutes after a rather opportunistic interception, and Thomas Mueller sealed the result 18 minutes from full time.

In the end, it was a very comfortable result, and Bayern moved 11 points clear of Leverkusen atop the Bundesliga table. There were many interesting takeaways from the match, which saw Manuel Neuer keep his 13th clean sheet of the Bundesliga season.
