Watch: Kane: "Scoring a hat-trick is a special feeling"
Full time! Bayern 7-0 Bochum
What a performance! Kane will take the plaudits for his hat-trick of goals and brace of assists, but this was a brilliant team display from Bayern. Tuchel's men go top for the first time this season. Bochum remain winless. How will Leverkusen respond against Heidenheim on Sunday?
The goal stands, and Kane has his first Bundesliga hat-trick. Deft finish to Sane's near-post drive. Pure class.
Bochum effort on goal
Ulreich has his first meaningful save to make from Stöger. It's all academic...
Tel makes it 6-0!
Bochum concede possession in their own half. Kane advances and feeds Tel, who cuts inside and thumps a fine finish past Riemann.
Müller takes the armband from Kimmich, with Bochum youth product Goretzka also on. Coman makes way after leading the Bochum defence on a merry dance.
They're just been superior in all areas.
He scored a fine goal against Liverpool in pre-season, and that's a pretty decent attempt at a first Bundesliga goal from Krätzig. He connects first time with Mazraoui's pull-back, stinging the palms of Riemann.
The kids are alright!
Tel, who's already scored a handful of goals from the bench this season, is on for Choupo-Moting. There's also a Bundesliga debut for 20-year-old Krätzig. Davies makes way.
Riemann parries a Kane strike. The Bayern man is on a hat-trick, remember...
Coman tests Riemann one minute, and clips the upright from 18 yards the next. This could be a cricket score...
Riemann goes the wrong way from the spot as Kane grabs his brace. Six Bundesliga goals and counting for the England captain.
Ordets gifts possession to Choupo-Moting, who runs into the box and goes to shoot. Ordets recovers, but uses his hand to block. Clear penalty...
Laimer finds Sane in the Bochum area. He touches the ball off to Kane, who cuts inside and tries to place a shot in the bottom corner, but it's blocked!
Bochum have shifted to a back five. They're sitting deeper than in the first half, but that's only going to invite the pressure.
Kimmich corner, Upamecano header, Riemann save. Bayern have picked up where they left off...
Up and running again!
De Ligt's gone off, presumably because of a knock, for Upamecano. Losilla, who was on a yellow card, makes way for Gamboa.

Riemann to the rescue
Sane plays Coman through. The Frenchman waltzes goalwards and tries to go round Riemann, who wins out on this occasion.
Kane's thwarted by Riemann after getting in behind the Bochum defence, but he was offside.
FOUR minutes at the end of the first half. Bochum enjoying a welcome spell of possession.
Red-hot in attack
Kane gets away from two Bochum defenders, but Davies' left-wing cross has just too much on it. Bayern are rampant.
The Bayern striker collects Mazraoui's pass and takes aim from a tight angle, but Riemann's equal to it.
Bayern make it look so easy as Kane splits the Bochum defence with a sensational pass into Sane. He slows his run and doesn't even take a touch, before curling a fine finish to the right of Riemann.
Letsch hooks his starting full-backs, with what appears to be a shift to a four-man defence. Damage limitation...
Kane picks up the ball on the edge of the Bochum area. He slips a cute pass into the feet of Choupo-Moting, who's denied his second of the contest by the on-rushing Riemann.
Bochum keep the pressure on Bayern following a corner. Losilla tries to cut a ball into the six-yard box, but Kim sticks out a boot to clear with the blue shirts lying in wait.
De Ligt makes it 3-0!
No stopping that from de Ligt, who powers in Kimmich's corner with his head. Bayern are flying.
Coman wins the header as Bayern break. He gets the ball back from Choupo-Moting, shows his man a couple of step-overs and sees a shot deflected behind for a corner...
Losilla's booked after following through on de Ligt in his attempt to get on the end of another teasing Antwi-Adjei cross. Brave defending by the Bayern man!
Antwi-Adjei fires in a dangerous cross that forces Ulreich into a diving save at his near post. Asano was lurking.
Bayern with a deserved lead
Bayern keep coming
Choupo-Moting shows a great bit of skill to bring Davies into play. Coman takes it on, twisting and turning, before winning a corner. Kimmich sends it in, but Ordets clears. Bayern pick it up, with Mazraoui's long-range shot charged down.
And Riemann is OK.
The Bochum No.1 is down receiving treatment after a collision with teammate Bernardo.
Bayern are purring as Sané slides a low ball into the box for Kane. The expectant crowd are on their feet, but the England striker balloons over.
Bayern in the mood
Kane thumps in his fifth Bundesliga goal in as many games. Davies does the hard work with a fine turn and run. He overdoes it a bit in the box, but it breaks kindly to Bayern's No.9, who fires past Riemann with a superb first-time finish.
Bayern were heavy favourites even before that Choupo-Moting goal. It could be a long afternoon for Bochum...
De Ligt rises above his marker to meet a Kimmich free-kick, but doesn't make the desired connection. Choupo-Moting tries to send it back into the danger zone, with his cross winning a corner. It's swung over to the back post, where Laimer heads over.
Cat and mouse
Bayern are teasing Bochum now. They're really up for this.
Bayern in front!
Nightmare start for Bochum. Bayern turn defence into attack, with Sane leading the charge. He threads a pass through for Coman, who could shoot, but insteads slides the ball towards the back post for the unmarked Choupo-Moting to tap home.
Bayern immediately on the attack as the ball is played out to the left for Coman. His cross finds Choupo-Moting, whose downward header hits Riemann in the face before being cleared. Either side of the Bochum keeper, and that's a goal.
Bayern are in their white and red home kit. Bochum are all in navy blue. Great atmosphere in Munich. These two sets of fans hold a close bond that dates back to the 1970s, when the 'Bochumer Jungen’, VfL’s oldest fan group, came to the aid of a group of Bayern supporters during an altercation.
Leverkusen started the weekend top of the Bundesliga, ahead of Bayern on goal difference, with 10 points from a possible 12. Stuttgart moved into first with victory over Darmstadt in the Friday game, but Bayern will go top for the first time this season with a win. Leverkusen host Heidenheim on Sunday. Winless Bochum are down in 13th, on three points.
Bochum have fired in a league-high 65 goal attempts across the last three matches. However, that hasn't stopped VfL from having the lowest number of different goalscorers in this season’s Bundesliga (two – Asano and Kevin Stöger). In terms of goals scored, they're on four after as many games. Only Cologne have produced fewer (three). Bayern have scored 11, whilst conceding four.

Lestch wary of Kane - and the others
The Bochum boss said: "Harry Kane is not Bayern's biggest transfer and one of the best centre-forwards in the world for nothing. He is difficult to defend against, but we have very tough-tackling players in our defence. We have to be careful not to reduce Bayern to just Kane too."
Tuchel on Sane
Letsch looks on positive side
Tuchel considers tinkering
The Bayern boss said at his pre-match press conference: "We always think about rotating. We'll have to see who is available. The feedback yesterday was very positive, everyone came out of the match in one piece. I think that we'll have everyone available. We have to respect the opponents. Bochum are on a good run, going three matches unbeaten, and they deserve that success. They have a very intensive way of playing. We need to be prepared and to match them physically."

One for the history books
Most teams have it tough against Bayern, but Bochum haven't won in Munich since August 1991. It's their only victory on Bayern's patch in 36 attempts in the Bundesliga.
