Mighty Bayern March On

Bayern Munich restored their 11-point advantage at the top of the Bundesliga with a 2-0 victory over VfB Stuttgart on Sunday night.

The sides were deadlocked at the break but Mario Mandzukic and Thomas Muller netted to secure all three points for the visitors.

Bayern took control of proceedings from the start but needed 10 minutes to create their first decent opportunity as Dante headed Toni Kroos' corner over the bar.

The hosts were under pressure as the half wore on as Kroos and David Alba threatened with set-pieces, but they managed to come close to scoring when a cross from Ibrahima Traore found Martin Harnik at the far post, only to see Manuel Neuer make the save.

The opener arrived five minutes into the second half. A poor back pass from Christian Molinaro gave Mandzukic the chance to pounce and he capitalised with the first goal.

The result was then secured in the 72nd minute. Mandzukic provided the assist on this occasion as he picked out Muller in the area with a cross. The Germany international then beat Serdar Tasci and Ulreich from close range.

Hamburger 3-2 Werder Bremen: In the only other Bundesliga game on Sunday Hamburger SV beat Werder Bremen at Imtech Arena.

Assani Lukimya opened the scoring for the visitors in the ninth minute before Heung-Min Son (23) equalised. Dennis Aogo (46) put the hosts in front for the first time and Artjoms Rudnevs (52) doubled the lead. Sokratis Papastathopoulos closed the gap two minutes later but the home side held on for the win.
