Bayern Dissect Hamburg In Eight-Goal Thrashing

Bayern Munich were in terrifying form on Saturday as they tore Hamburger SV apart 8-0 at the Allianz Arena in their Bundesliga clash.
 
The Bavarians pulled ahead in the 21st minute when Thomas Muller provided a clinical finish from the spot after the hosts were awarded a penalty following a handball in the area by Ronny Marcos.
 
The lead was doubled two minutes later. Muller's shot from the edge of the box was parried away towards Mario Gotze who pounced on the loose ball and stuck it away.
 
A sensational individual effort from Arjen Robben saw Die Roten surge three goals clear in the 36th minute. The Dutchman got the ball just inside the opposition's half and pierced through the middle of the pitch before curling a shot in off the post.
 
Robben was at it again two minutes into the second half as he marauded into the area before beating Ronny and slotting home with his weaker foot at the near post.
 
The goals just kept on coming as Bayern made it 5-0 in the 55th minute with Muller adding a second to his name. Bastian Schweinsteiger played Muller in and the midfielder placed his shot perfectly from 30 yards out.
 
Robert Lewandowski showed the visitors no mercy as he netted Bayern's sixth goal only a minute after Muller's brace. Muller turned provider as he sent a pass across the face of goal for Lewandowski to poke home from close range.
 
The seventh goal of the game arrived in the 69th minute as Franck Ribéry scored with an opportunistic strike. Lewandowski's initial shot was parried away but only as far as the Frenchman who made no mistake with his strike.
 
The annihilation was complete in the 88th minute as Gotze claimed a second goal with another top-class finish.
