0 – SC HERTHA BERLIN
6 – BAYERN MUNICH ————— Robben 12′, pen 19′, pen 67′, Mueller 9′, Gomez pen 50′, Kroos 51′

Another assault of Blitztore allowed the record German champions to race to an early three-goal advantage and another flurry just after the re-start transformed the rest of the match into a mere formality as visiting BAYERN MUNICH blasted struggling SC HERTHA BERLIN 6-0 in a Bundesliga contest played under the bright lights of the Olympic stadium in the proud nation’s capital.

France World Cup winger FRANCK RIBERY made yet another incendiary run into the box and pulled the ball back for Germany World Cup winger THOMAS MUELLER, deployed by trainer JUPP HEYNCKES in the role of central attacking midfielder as of late, to bank in off the far post with a partially-flubbed volley from about eight yards out in only the ninth minute. Shortly thereafter, Mueller released Holland World Cup winger ARJEN ROBBEN clear in midfield on the right with a precision pass for the Dangerous Dutchman to fully exploit. Shifting into another gear, Robben pulled away from his defender before drilling an absolute rocket that former Bayern Munich goalkeeper THOMAS KRAFT could only wave at while standing in between the sticks for SC Hertha Berlin.

The heavily-involved Mueller was also soon hacked down in the penalty area by one-time Bayern Munich defender CHRISTIAN LELL and Robben raised the scoreline to 3-0 in favor of the Bavarians from the spot with less than twenty minutes expired; there would be no way back for SC Hertha Berlin trainer OTTO REHHAGEL’s relegation-threatened side.

Germany World Cup winger THOMAS MUELLER of Bayern Munich, who netted in midweek against Swiss side FC Basel during the club record-setting UEFA Champions League rout, looks to squeeze between the SC Hertha Berlin defensive pair of CHRISTOPH JANKER (6) and CHRISTIAN LELL in the box and will draw a penalty kick — one of three awarded on the evening by match referee Tobias Welz of Wiesbaden — for his efforts early into the sold-out Bundesliga contest in front of 74,244 Zuschauer at the Olympiastadion.
======================================================

Kraft went to the changing room limping and so Rehhagel sent on 22-year-old SASCHA BURCHERT, making just his second Bundesliga appearance of the season (both as a substitute) and only the fifth of his career, to start the second half. The unfortunate Burchert had a penalty kick to contend with almost immediately after SC Hertha Berlin substitute defender ALREDO MORALES felled Ribery in the area. Germany international striker MARIO GOMEZ, however, had no trouble from the spot to welcome the new netminder and lift his total for the Bavarians to 22 goals in the Bundesliga this term.

Less than a minute later, the unlucky Burchert produced an admirable save to temporarily deny Robben his hat trick after a terrible error by SC Hertha Berlin defender CHRISTOPH JANKER but the rebound fell straight to Germany international midfielder TONI KROOS lurking at the penalty spot; an efficient side-volley found the back of an empty net and gave Kroos his second strike in as many Bundesliga matches while stretching the Bayern Munich’s margin to five in the 51st minute.

In the end, though, the Dangerous Dutchman would have a third goal after Morales, once again, dropped the unmanageable Ribery inside the penalty area. Robben gave the beleaguered Burchert absolutely no chance whatsoever with a powerful and precise laser to the upper left hand corner that no world-class goalkeeper could have halted. In the meantime, Bayern Munich had completed yet another Torschuetzenfest having scored 20 times in its last three matches.

Robben, in particlar, has been in blistering form since scoring two magnificent goals for Holland in the friendly with England at the famed Wembley Stadium in London. The final strike against SC Hertha Berlin at the Olympiastadion marked a 50th career goal for the Dangerous Dutchman in all competitions for Bayern Munich since arriving from Spanish giant Real Madrid in exchange for a transfer fee of 25.0 million Euros in the summer of 2009. A remarkable string of seven goals in Bayern Munich’s last four matches would certainly seem to indicate that the oft-injured winger is returning to peak form at just the right time of year for the proud Bavarian club …
