In their last match, Bayern Munich flirted with their their first loss of the season. There was no such drama on Sunday.
The defending champions absolutely destroyed Eintracht Frankfurt, 5-0, at the Allianz Arena to keep their run at a perfect Bundesliga season alive. They were ahead just 12 minutes into the match and never looked back, pounding hapless Eintracht.
Mario Gotze scored first, hitting a knocked down long diagonal on the half-volley from 18 yards to leave Kevin Trapp no chance. It was a great shot, hard and low to the bottom corner and Bayern were off and running.
It took until the 44th minute before Bayern scored again, but it wasn't for lack of chances. They dominated the ball and got looks at the goal only to see Eintracht block a slew of shots and many more go wide. But finally, Mario Mandukic's headed shot was blocked and fell right to Franck Ribery, who slotted the ball home and Bayern were 2-0 up at halftime.
Arjen Robben got in on the action in the 67th minute when Gotze ran at the defense before hitting it square for the Dutchman to hit into a gaping net and Dante added a goal of his own two minutes later. Mandukic finished the scoring a minute from time when he got down the right before cutting back and curling a shot to the back post.
Eintracht had no chance on Sunday and the scoreboard showed it. The Bayern machine continued to roll.
