Spieltag # 3

5 – BAYERN MUNICH ———— van Buyten 13′, Ribery 17′, Robben 34′, Gomez 56′, Olic 80′
0 – SV HAMBURG

A pair of strikes inside the first seventeen minutes and a world-class goal arriving in the 34th minute guaranteed that there would be no way back for the visitors as Rekordmeister BAYERN MUNICH blasted the Bundesliga Dinosaur SV HAMBURG 5-0 in the third round of competition in the German top flight.

Holland World Cup winger ARJEN ROBBEN, once again, exercised his influence with a free kick for veteran Belgium international DANIEL VAN BUYTEN — the one-time SV Hamburg center back making his first start in this, Bayern Munich’s fifth competitive match of the new season — to meet unmolested in the box and head home to send the Bavarian club ahead before the quarter hour; just four minutes later, France World Cup winger FRANCK RIBERY settled a cross from Germany World Cup attacker THOMAS MUELLER on the left and, with a bit of fancy footwork, left two defenders standing still and doubled the advantage with his first tally for Bayern Munich this term.

Robben, who, like Ribery, was acquired by Bayern Munich at a cost of 25.0 million Euros, put the result beyond doubt before the halftime whistle had even been blown with an individual effort that only served to endorse his world-class stature. The Dangerous Dutchman took a routine ball from the Beligan van Buyten in midfield near the right touchline and embarked on a knifing run straight into the area. Stepping around SV Hamburg’s current Germany international defender DENNIS AOGO, Robben made his delightful lob of Czech Republic international goalkeeper JAROSLAV DROBNY look all too easy in registering his 29th goal from 40 career Bundesliga matches for Bayern Munich.

On the heels of a spectacular goal against FC Zurich in the UEFA Champions League this past Wednesday, Holland World Cup winger ARJEN ROBBEN of Bayern Munich dribbles past SV Hamburg captain and Germany international HEIKO WESTERMANN on his way to what will surely stand out as one of the most skillful goals scored this entire 2011/12 Bundesliga season during the Bavarian club’s heavy 5-0 defeat of their long-time rivals from the north at the Allianz Arena in Sued Deutschland.
================================================================

Germany international striker MARIO GOMEZ, last season’s Bundesliga Torjaegermeister who arrived at Bayern Munich with the price tag of 30.0 million Euros, has struggled to get the ball on target this summer thus far. But the 26-year-old, after being denied his first Bundesliga goal of this new campaign by a good reflex save from Drobny in the first half, was able to take a ball from Mueller in the box on the right and squeeze the ball into the net from a very tight angle near the goalline shortly before the hour. The beleagured SV Hamburg keeper might have been better served to stay on his feet given the situation but Gomez still celebrated his first strike since the opening match against Eintracht Braunschweig in the D.F.B. Pokal.

Croatia international attacker IVICA OLIC, who spent two and a half terms with SV Hamburg before a free transfer to Bayern Munich in the summer of 2009, closed out the scoring with a diving header in the 80th minute. The 31-year-old veteran, who came on as a second half substitute for Mueller, appeared in just nine matches on account of injury last season after scoring 11 goals in the Bundesliga and seven more in the UEFA Champions League his first season in Bavaria. The strike marked Olic’s first since scoring Bayern Munich’s second goal in the 4-0 win over Werder Bremen in the German Cup Final on May 15, 2010.

Germany international defender HOLGER BADSTUBER rose in the box to head the free kick of Germany World Cup midfielder BASTIAN SCHWEINSTEIGER into the path of the opportunistic Olic.

With the injury time victory against Vfl Wolfsburg, a comfortable triumph over FC Zurich in the UEFA Champions Leauge and, now, a decisive defeat of SV Hamburg now successfully strung together for trainer JUPP HEYNCKES, it does appear the Bayern Munich are making strides towards performing at an acceptable level which is more condusive towards achieving excellence in both the Bundesliga and Europe.
