Bayern Regains Bundesliga Lead with 6-0 Rout of Wolfsburg

MUNICH, Germany – Bayern Munich trounced visiting Wolfsburg 6-0 on Saturday to wrest back the top spot in the Bundesliga standings from Borussia Dortmund, who earned a hard-fought 3-1 win over Stuttgart.

With the matchday-25 victory at Allianz Arena, Bayern (57 points) has a slight edge based on goal differential and finally ended Dortmund’s long stranglehold on first place dating back to the sixth round of the German-league season.

German winger Serge Gnabry opened the scoring for Bayern four minutes after the half-hour mark when he connected on a cross from teammate Thomas Müller inside the six-yard-box.

Just three minutes later, Gnabry took on the role of playmaker and set up Robert Lewandowski for a tap-in that gave Bayern a 2-0 lead.

That goal was the 196th in the Bundesliga for the Polish superstar, who now is the highest-scoring foreign player in league history.

After the break, Colombian winger James Rodriguez gave Bayern a 3-0 lead in the 52nd minute with a remarkable finish off a pass from midfielder Thiago Alcantara.

Super-sub Franck Ribery then assisted on three goals after taking the field in the 55th minute as a replacement for Gnabry.

Ribery set Müller up for Bayern’s fourth goal in the 76th minute before assisting on a score by German right-back Joshua Kimmich six minutes later.

Lewandowski then benefited from yet another assist from the Frenchman to complete his brace in the 85th minute and cap off a ruthless performance by the six-time defending Bundesliga champions.

In other action Saturday, Borussia Dortmund defeated visiting VfB Stuttgart 3-1 at Signal Iduna Park to claim just their second triumph in their last six Bundesliga matches.

After a scoreless first half, German playmaker Marco Reus got his team on the board by converting from the 12-yard mark in the 62nd minute.

Although the home side completely dominated ball possession, Stuttgart managed to draw level on a goal by German defender Marc-Oliver Kempf nine minutes later.

But Spanish striker Paco Alcacer gave Dortmund the lead for good with a goal in the 84th minute, while substitute forward Christian Pulisic of the United States notched an insurance goal in second-half stoppage time.

In other Bundesliga action Saturday, RB Leipzig and Augsburg played to a scoreless draw at Red Bull Arena, while 12th-placed Freiburg topped ninth-placed Hertha Berlin 2-1 at Schwarzwald-Stadion.
