Bayern Hit Five Past Eintracht Frankfurt

Bayern Munich restored their 13 point lead at the top of the table after easing past Eintracht Frankfurt 5-0 at the Allianz Arena on Sunday in a one sided affair.

Croatian striker Mario Mandzukic had the first chance of the game in the seventh minute after he controlled a Rafinha cross before turning and shooting, forcing a good save out of Eintracht goalkeeper Trapp doing well to save low to his left.

The German champions then did take the lead soon after and broke the deadlock through Mario Gotze, who took a headed-flick on from Mandzukic on his chest before firing his volley home in the 12th minute.

The former Dortmund player then forced a great save out of Trapp in the 23rd minute after he did well to get on the end of a Franck Ribery cross.

Manuel Neuer was then called into action for the first time in the game with just over 30 minutes on the clock; the German international shot-stopper did well to tip over an attempted clearance by Thiago over for a corner.

Bayern did however double their lead on the stroke of half-time when Ribery drilled home a low shot into the bottom corner after Mandzukic’s header was initially blocked.

Pep Guardiola’s men then carried on where they left off in the first-half, and came close to adding a third goal when first Gotze’s effort was tipped against the post by Trapp in the 52nd minute before Ribery’s deft lob was deflected onto the crossbar five minutes later.

The Bavarian giants finally found a third through substitute Arjen Robben; the Dutch winger smashed a left-footed effort into the roof of the net after a pass from Gotze who was at the centre of all of Bayern’s attacking momentum.

Big centre-back Dante all but wrapped up the result for Pep’s men when he rose highest in the box and headed home from a Ribery corner in the 69th minute.

Mandzukic then tucked home Bayern’s fifth in the final minute of play and deserved the goal after the striker looked dangerous all afternoon.

In the Bundesliga's other fixture Hertha Berlin suffered a 3-1 home loss to Nuremberg.
