Bavarian club now have one hand on the Bundesliga title.
Runaway Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich continued their unstoppable march towards the German title on the weekend by annihilating Hamburg 9-2 at the Allianz Arena.
The Bavarians took all of five minutes to break the deadlock through Swiss playmaker Xherdan Shaquiri, who set up for Bastian Schweinsteiger to make it 2-0 moments later.
It was then striker Claudio Pizarro’s turn to get his name on the score sheet after half an hour, before the Peruvian created a goal for winger Arjen Robben.
And, when Pizarro struck again just before the break, Munich could start turning their attentions towards Juventus in the Champions League on Tuesday, although the scoring was not finished for the day.
First, that man Pizarro grabbed his hat-trick after only 53 minutes, before Robben also netted his second of the match and as if not to be out done, the attacker scored his fourth goal with still more than 20 minutes left to play.
The visitor did grab a consolation thanks to Jeffrey Bruma’s 75th-minute header, only for substitute Franck Ribery to make it nine for the home side and the final goal was scored by Hamburg’s Heiko Westermann.
