Bayern Munich warm up for Arsenal with Wolfsburg win

Against his former club, Mario Mandzukic again proved why Germany's Mario Gomez must be content with a place on Bayern's bench. The Croat gave Munich a first-half lead to claim his sixth goal in four Bundesliga games, taking his tally in all matches to 17 for the season.

Berlin: Bayern Munich went 18 points clear at the top of the Bundesliga on Friday with a 2-0 victory at VfL Wolfsburg as they move ever closer to the German title.

With Tuesday's trip to Arsenal looming in the Champions League last-16, first-leg tie, Bayern did enough to see off 12th-placed Wolfsburg without picking up injuries.

It was Munich's 18th win from 22 matches and with second-placed Borussia Dortmund hosting Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday, Bayern took the chance to further extend their massive lead.
