Bayern Munich were too strong for Hoffenhiem- and if they keep playing like this, they won't be in second place for long.

Mario Gomez opened the scoring after just five minutes. Arjen Robben didn't panic at the spot, before Toni Kroos increased their lead.

Franck Ribery and Robben combined to make it four, before Gomez put the game beyond doubt in the 35th minute.

The German international completed his hat trick in early in the second half - that's his eighteenth goal season.

Ribery got in on the act, making it 7-0. Even a late own goal couldn't take the gloss off of this performance.

7-1 it finished then, Bayern now just 5 points off the top of the Bundesliga.
