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.

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Corentin Tolisso set up Arjen Robben to slam home a fourth early in the second half, before the French midfielder was withdrawn due to injury.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.
