3 – Bayern Munich ———— Gomez 10′, 75′, Lahm pen 57′
0 – 1.FC Nuremberg

A goal right out of the gate gave the defending champions the confident start which was parlayed into a complete game as BAYERN MUNICH rolled to a 3-0 defeat of intra-state Bavarian rival 1.FC NUREMBERG in the 181st installment of the Bayrisches Derby.

Bayern Munich added a second goal a dozen minutes into the second half after 1.FC Nuremberg goalkeeper RAPHAEL SCHAEFER felled Germany international striker MARIO GOMEZ with an unwise, feet-first challenge.

Someone should take the time to explain to Schaefer that the goalkeeper is not only allowed, but encouraged to use his hands inside the big box known as the penalty area.

France World Cup midfielder FRANCK RIBERY returned from a lengthy injury absence to appear as a second half substitute for Bayern Munich and took the corner kick that Gomez stooped down low to head past the hapless Schaefer for his second goal of the Bayrisches Derby.

With the brace in the Bavarian duel, the 25-year-old former Vfb Stuttgart striker pushed his Bundesliga total to seven goals and now boasts 12 goals in all competitions to lead Bayern Munich this season.

Following the victory over 1.FC Nuremberg, Bayern Munich jumped four spots in the standings to stand sixth on 19 points from a dozen Bundesliga matches.
