0 – SV HAMBURG
3 – BAYERN MUNICH ——— Schweinsteiger 40′, Mueller 49′, Kroos 53′

Three goals inside of a deadly quarter hour span on both sides of the halftime whistle were more than enough to easily decide the most recent installment of this particular Bundesliga-Klassiker as top of the table BAYERN MUNICH blanked host SV HAMBURG 3-0 and returned to its winning ways in the German top flight.

Trainer JUPP HEYNCKES, after resting most of the regular first team for the midweek D.F.B. Pokal clash with second division 1.FC Kaiserslautern, needed to wait almost until the halftime whistle for the visitors to take the lead. Germany international midfielder TONI KROOS went around SV Hamburg goalkeeper RENE ADLER on an angle too wide for a shot. But the emerging central attacking midfielder was able to pick out veteran Germany international BASTIAN SCHWEINSTEIGER at the far post.

A diving header from the 28-year-old with 97 caps for Deutschland left the scrambling Adler no hope and allowed Schweinsteiger to net his fourth goal of this Bundesliga season for Bayern Munich. The experienced defensive midfielder, to review, posted just three goals from 22 top flight appearances in an injury-filled campaign last term. Schweinsteiger’s personal best in the Bundesliga would be the five goals registered on 31 appearances for the Bavarians during the 2008/09 season.

======================================================

======================================================
Hamburg SV goalkeeper RENE ADLER, the 27-year-old who has earned 10 caps for Germany in his career, is in his first season with the Bundesliga’s Dinosaur after transferring in the summer from Bayer Leverkusen; Adler immediately relegated last season’s first choice for HSV, the 33-year-old Czech Republic international Jaroslav Drobny, to the role of reserve and has easily been the best player for trainer Thorsten Fink’s squad thus far this season.
======================================================

Just after the second half got underway, red-hot Germany international winger THOMAS MUELLER doubled Bayern Munich’s lead with a genuine world-class goal. Apparently forced wide by both the goalkeeper Adler and HSV’s veteran Germany international defender MARCEL JANSEN, the 23-year-old winger neatly curled to score his seventh goal of this 2012/13 Bundesliga season. Mueller stands second for the Bavarians, just a solitary strike behind only Croatia international striker MARIO MANDZUKIC.

Kroos compounded problems for SV Hamburg by playing a slick one-two with France World Cup winger FRANCK RIBERY and shooting past Adler to score his fourth goal in the German top flight this term just five minutes later.

A satisfying win for visiting Bayern Munich, who had seen their record-setting streak of eight consecutive triumphs to begin the Bundesliga season snapped by Bayer Leverkusen only a week earlier; a fine tune-up for the Bavarians in advance of the vital match with French side OSC Lille in the UEFA Champions League, as well.

Austria international DAVID ALABA, the versatile, 20-year-old making his first start of the season at left back for record German champions Bayern Munich, and HEUNG-MIN SON of Hamburg SV, the 20-year-old South Korea international winger who has totaled 13 goals in 51 Bundesliga matches since graduating from the youth team of die Rothosen, engage in an aerial duel during the latest Bundesliga-Klassiker at the Imtech Arena in the Hanseatic port city.
========================================================

SV HAMBURG : Adler – Diekmeier, Mancienne, Westermann, Jansen – Rincon (Rudnevs 46′) – Badelj, Arslan – Son, Beister (Aogo 59′) – van der Vaart

BAYERN MUNICH : Neuer – Lahm, Boateng, Dante, Alaba – Luiz Gustavo (Martinez 56′), Schweinsteiger – Mueller, Kroos (Tymoshchuk 75′), Ribery (Rafinha 83′) – Mandzukic
