James Rodriguez fitting in with Bayern Munich better than Real Madrid already

Colombian star James Rodriguez never really settled in at Real Madrid over three seasons, but in just a couple months he looks to be fitting in just well at Bayern Munich. The talented midfielder scored his first Bundesliga goal and recorded an assist as the German giants cruised to a 3-0 victory over Schalke on Tuesday.

James made it 2-0 in the 29th minute with this clever, confident near-post finish.

But that wasn't in. The former Monaco and Porto man set up Arturo Vidal for the last goal of the match with a clever lofted through ball. Check this one out:

Boy, he's looking good so far in Bayern, and a performance like that should mean more opportunities for him moving forward.
