The 27-year-old then got himself on score-sheet as he scored Bayern's second goal in the 55th minute. Paderborn pulled one back before Robert Lewandowski restored his side's two-goal advantage.
Paderborn scored another to make it 3-2 to Bayern.
Coutinho endured a miserable spell at Barcelona following his mega-money switch from Liverpool, but he's discovering his form in Germany.
