3/10/12
Bundesliga
Spieltag # 25

7 – BAYERN MUNICH ——————– Gomez 5′, 35′, 48′, Robben pen 12′, 29′, Kroos 18′, Ribery 58′
1 – TSG 1899 HOFFENHEIM ———– own goal 85′

An eye-opening five goals within the first thirty-five minutes of the match enabled an obviously fired-up BAYERN MUNICH to thoroughly obliterate visiting TSG 1899 HOFFENHEIM 7-1 in the Bundesliga and move within five points of the leaders at the top of the German table as the 2011/12 campaign winds down.

It took Germany international striker MARIO GOMEZ of Bayern Munich only five minutes to end his four-game goal-scoring slump after TSG 1899 Hoffenheim goalkeeper TOM STARKE, who had shutout the explosive Bavarians earlier this past fall in Baden-Wuerttemberg, could not hold a drive cross from Germany World Cup winger THOMAS MUELLER. Once Holland World Cup winger ARJEN ROBBEN had ended his seven-match goalless streak from the penalty spot and Germany international midfielder TONI KROOS had netted his second goal of the Bundesliga season (fifth in all competitions), the rout was officially on less than twenty minutes in. Robben made it 4-0 shortly before the half hour mark after delightfully skipping around Starke and slotting the ball into an empty net for his seventh goal in the top flight this term while Gomez made it five-nil with his second strike in the 35th minute following a third consecutive helper from France World Cup winger FRANCK RIBERY.

The heretofore out-of-form Gomez claimed his hat trick with a second headed goal to leave hapless TSG Hoffenheim down half a doze just three minutes after the re-start. Super Mario, who was taken off shortly before the hour in favor of veteran Croatia international attacker IVICA OLIC, also re-established himself at the sole leader of the Bundesliga with 21 goals for Bayern Munich this season. A boost of confidence for Gomez, then, as the Bavarians prepare to host visiting Swiss side FC Basel in the return leg of the UEFA Champions League, Round of 16 tie later this week.

Ribery stretched the scoreline to 7-0 Bayern Munich after a wonderful thru-ball from Robben before the hour. After rounding Starke and finishing well from a tight angle, the 28-year-old Frenchman equaled his career best with an eleventh goal in the German top flight this season. Ribery, following a 25.0 million Euro move from French Ligue One club Olympique Marseille, fired 11 goals in 28 matches for Bayern Munich during the 2007-008 Bundesliga campaign previously.

Germany World Cup midfielder BASTIAN SCHWEINSTEIGER, out of action since the beginning of February, was sent on by Bayern Munich trainer JUPP HEYNCKES in the second half to work on some match fitness and was greeting with a rousing reception upon substitution by the Bavarian faithful at the Allianz Arena.

TSG Hoffenheim, who did not manage a first shot in the match until already trailing by a five-goal margin, finally caught a break with but a scant five minutes to play. Bayern Munich midfielder LUIZ GUSTAVO, the Brazilian international bought by the Bavarian club from TSG Hoffenheim in exchange for a transfer fee of 15.0 million Euros in January of 2011, fell down on the ball all alone at the back and, in doing so, allowed Holland World Cup winger RYAN BABEL a breakaway from midfield. And then, in a commendable bid to redeem himself by hustling back, Luiz Gustavo actually hacked the ball away from Babel but could only manage the spoil the shutout in spectacular fashion.
