Bayern Munich hammer Werder Bremen 7-0 away from home in the Bundesliga.
Bayern Munich have defeated Werder Bremen 7-0 away from home in the Bundesliga to extend their lead at the top of the table.
It was a bright start from the hosts, with Eljero Elia forcing Manuel Neuer into action before Aaron Hunt had an effort from close range blocked.
Into the game came Bayern and ahead they went after 21 minutes. Franck Ribery caused havoc down the left and his cross-shot was turned into his own net by Assani Lukimya.
Just six minutes later it was 2-0 to the champions, as a Toni Kroos free kick from the byline was headed hard and low into the net by Daniel van Buyten.
Ribery then got the goal his performance deserved. Thomas Muller was set away down the right and his low cross was controlled and then turned in by the Frenchman, who was unmarked in the box.
It was soon 4-0 after Mario Mandzukic was provided with a simple tap-in following good work on the right between Muller and Ribery.
Gotze was the next provider as he put it on a plate for Muller with a cut-back, before Ribery added his second on 82 minutes with a simple finish from close range.
There was time for Gotze to add one of his own late on to complete a rout for Pep Guardiola's men.
