Bayern Munich has taken team of the week honors in The Associated Press global football poll for the fifth time this season after following up its 2-0 win at Arsenal in the Champions League with a 4-0 rout at Hannover.
Second-half goals from Toni Kroos and Thomas Mueller gave holder Bayern Munich a 2-0 victory over 10-man Arsenal and a firm grip of their last 16 Champions League tie on Wednesday.
"We downshifted a little bit in the Bundesliga, but it's important to win big games," Kroos said.
"We still want to take each game seriously so we don't get into any rut with a view to the Champions League. Indeed it's difficult to flip the switch again," Kroos said.
