MUNICH - Arjen Robben continued his spectacular form by setting up two goals and scoring another to guide champions Bayern Munich to a 4-1 home win over Cologne on Friday and crown celebrations for their 115-year anniversary.

The Bavarians, who have now scored 18 goals in their last three Bundesliga games, extended their lead at the top of the table to 11 points over second-placed VfL Wolfsburg who travel to in-form Werder Bremen on Sunday.

Bayern, who also had keeper Manuel Neuer to thank for a string of superb saves, started the party with a third-minute goal from Bastian Schweinsteiger who rose high to head in a Robben corner.

Franck Ribery doubled the lead seven minutes later with a crisp, low drive through the legs of a defender as Bayern ripped through the Cologne defence at will.

The visitors pulled one back when Anthony Ujah nodded the ball in on the stroke of halftime.

Bayern struggled in the second half as the hard-working Cologne defence closed down the spaces and contained them better.
