Bayern came in to the game knowing they needed nothing less than a victory. After a poor show last time out against FC Team, managers Holder and Pinhas made it clear to the boys that they needed to be up for it.
After a cautious but solid first half, with left-back Sam Kanter spurning a number of long-range efforts and Ellis not doing his usual bits, the half-time teamtalk from Daniel Holder was nothing short of a masterclass. Holder took matters into his own hands, coming off the bench as the second half proved a very different affair.
Spraying the ball all over the show, Holder found Ellis wide on the left, the striker cutting in and drilling the ball inside to Leader to tap in the first of what could only be described as a Bayern goal fest.
Catford lost steam, and Ellis took full advantage, scoring three on the trot after top quality long balls from Manuel Nyman, Fink and some neat play down the left from Pinhas and Kanter.
Kanter could smell goals, however, and after swapping with Pinhas to left wing, he took little time in capitalising on a defensive error, scoring a somewhat open goal from 25 yards.
Eli Davila was solid as a rock once again, and Terespolsky pulled through with a powerful performance as per. Returning captain Jake Dayan looks well on the way to recovery for the final title push.
Bayern joint-manager Daniel Holder told JC Sport: "Well done to Catford - a solid battle and we wish them luck."
