Carlo Ancelotti has lauded Bayern Munich's 8-0 thrashing of Hamburg as "perfect" after the Italian marked his 1,000th game as a head coach in style.

Robert Lewandowski scored his third hat-trick of the season as Bayern remained five points clear at the top of the Bundesliga, with Arturo Vidal, David Alaba, Kingsley Coman (two) and Arjen Robben also getting on the scoresheet.

And Ancelotti, who has now won 591 of his games as a head coach, acknowledged that even he was left astounded by the quality on show at the Allianz Arena.

"It was a perfect day, a perfect game," he told Bayern's official website.
