4 – BAYERN MUNICH ———— Gomez 2′, 68′, Schweinsteiger 19′, Ribery 39′
0 – 1.FC NUREMBERG

Yet another Blitztor followed up by two more first half strikes essentially settled the affair rather early as Bundesliga leaders BAYERN MUNICH cruised to a thorough 4-0 triumph over traditional intra-state rival 1.FC NUREMBERG in the latest installment of the Bayrisches Derby and remained at the top of the German first division.

Bayern Munich needed just 88 seconds to open the scoring after Germany international defender HOLGER BADSTUBER lifted a precise long ball to BASTIAN SCHWEINSTEIGER out on the right wing. The Germany World Cup midfielder skillfully settled with a delicate touch and immediately issued a precise cross for Germany international striker MARIO GOMEZ to run onto and head past 1.FC Nuremberg goalkeeper ALEXANDER STEPHAN. The goal, an eleventh of the season in the Bundesliga for the 26-year-old striker, was, in fact, the first Kopfballtor for Gomez this term.

Bayern Munich, who have not lost at home to 1.FC Nuremberg since the 1991-92 season and have now won eleven matches with two draws since, doubled its advantage in the 19th minute after some of the most eye-pleasing build-up of this entire campaign thus far. Germany World Cup left back PHILIPP LAHM worked the one-two with France World Cup winger FRANCK RIBERY and galloped into the penalty area before pulling the ball back for Gomez at the top of the box. The regining Bundesliga Torjaegermeister unselfishly laid the ball of for the approaching Schweinsteiger, who uncorked a firece blast just inside the post to leave Stephan absolutely no prayer.

Six minutes before the halftime break, Ribery turned on the left wing with a ball from the Bayern Munich club captain Lahm and cut back into the center before rifling a low, right-footer to beat the shell-shocked Stephan. The in-form Frenchman has been a dominant force for the Bayern attack with five goals and seven assists to his credit already in the first eleven matches of this 2011-12 Bundesliga season. This all the more important considering the contined absence of superstar Holland World Cup winger ARJEN ROBBEN.

Germany World Cup goalkeeper MANUEL NEUER had his eight-game shutout streak in the Bundesliga snapped by Hannover 96 on his last outing for Bayern Munich but came off his line extremely well to smother a ball at the feet of 1.FC Nuremberg’s 22-year-old Czech Republic international striker TOMAS PEKHART roughly ten minutes into the second half. Later the 25-year-old backstop preserved his clean sheet with a sharp reflex save off a close range header from Pekhart. Neuer has now ‘spielte zu Null’ (played to zero, i.e., picked up the shutout) in nine of his first eleven Bundesliga matches for Bayern since signing his highly-controversial move from Schalke 04 Gelsenkirchen this summer.

In the meantime, the 22-year-old Badstuber had already been unlucky to rattle the proverbial woodwork but then released Germany international midfielder TONI KROOS down the left wing with another standout pass. The 21-year-old midfielder made a threatening run to the goal line before squaring to give Gomez a simple tap in. With a second score of the match, the current scoring leader in the German top flight this season, as well, took his career tally for Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga to an even 50 goals in only 71 matches.

To review, Gomez was bought by Bayern Munich from Vfb Stuttgart in the summer of 2009 for the then-record German transfer fee of 30.0 million Euros.
