Robert Lewandowski scored his 100th Bundesliga goal for league leaders Bayern Munich, as the Reds condemned Hamburg to another heavy defeat on Saturday, running out 6-0 winners at the Allianz Arena.
Goals: 1-0 Ribery (8'), 2-0 Lewandowski (12'), 3-0 Lewandowski (19'), 4-0 Robben (55'), 5-0 Ribery (81'), Lewandowski missed pen. (86'), 6-0 Lewandowski (pen. 90')
HSV had painful memories of recent visits to Bavaria, losing 8-0 (twice) and 9-2 among other hefty losses, and coach Bernd Hollerbach must have feared a similar scoreline when his team fell 3-0 down inside 19 minutes. The recalled Franck Ribery netted the Bundesliga’s 51,000th goal to open the floodgates and Lewandowski added two more with well-taken finishes.
Corentin Tolisso set up Arjen Robben to slam home a fourth early in the second half, before the French midfielder was withdrawn due to injury. Ribery rolled back the years with a mazy run and stylish finish to make it five, and after Lewandowski skied a penalty on 99 goals, he made amends in the dying moments to complete his treble and add another record to his growing collection in the colours of the champions.
- Robben scored his first Bundesliga goal since he netted away at Borussia Dortmund on 4 November.
- For the first time in the league this season, Bayern scored three goals before half-time.
- Ribery's opening goal was the 51,000th scored in Bundesliga history.
- Lewandowski's first goal was his 140th in his 182nd appearance for Bayern, making him the club's leading non-German goalscorer in official competitions, overtaking Giovane Elber.
- Lewandowski has scored more Bundesliga goals this season (23) than the entire Hamburg team put together (18).
- Bayern have won their last seven Bundesliga meetings in a row with Hamburg, including a pair of 8-0 routs and a 5-0 drubbing. They also beat the northerners 9-2 in 2013.
- In their last eight home games against Hamburg, Bayern have scored 50 goals.
- Hamburg are on the longest winless run of any Bundesliga club (13 matches).
- HSV are this season's lowest Bundesliga goalscorers (18); Bayern the highest (65).
