Jerome Boateng was sent off after nine minutes before Filip Kostic gave the hosts the lead. Djibril Sow's first Bundesliga strike doubled the Eagles' advantage before a brilliant solo effort from Robert Lewandowski got Bayern within a goal at the break.
Defenders David Abraham and Martin Hinteregger rubbed salt in the wounds. Julian Nagelsmann's side dished out their second hiding of the week after a cup win. Marcel Sabitzer started the rout early before Timo Werner slid home the second. Christopher Nkunku, Marcel Halstenberg and Yussuf Poulsen got in on the act before the break before Werner grabbed his second and Nordi Mukiele pictured grabbed his first of the season.
Werner wrapped up his hat-trick late on. BVB lost captain Marco Reus early on to injury but stepped up the pressure in the second half before the first two goals came in six minutes. There were spectacular choreos, flares that caused the players to leave the field and a brief pitch invasion at the end but the first meeting of these two clubs in the top flight was less eventful on the pitch. Sebastian Polter slammed home a controversial late penalty that settled a tepid affair and secured capital city bragging rights for Union.
Gladbach's rapid start under Marco Rose continued as the Foals extended their lead at the top of the table. Oscar Wendt converted Marcus Thuram's cross at the back post to give his side an early lead before Kevin Volland latched on to a stunning Lucas Alario through ball to level things up.
But the in-form Thuram got his fifth goal in six matches just before the break to seal the win. An excellent display from Milot Rashica wasn't enough for Bremen to pick up their first win since mid September thanks to Nils Petersen's injury time equalizer. Rashica lashed in the opener only to see goalkeeper Jiri Pavlenka hand Petersen his first leveller.
Rashica then turned provider for Theodor Gebre Selassie but poor defending allowed Petersen to head in a heartbreaker at the back post. Hoffenheim scored three goals in the opening 25 minutes to go fifth in the table. The in-form hosts got off to the perfect start when Robert Skov banged in a beautiful free-kick. Hoffenheim have now won four league games in a row.
The newly-promoted side are now just a point off their more established counterparts. Borussia Dortmund made things comfortable for their fans for a change. But Marco Reus' departure in the first half with an injury is a significant cloud on the horizon and the club say he will be assessed ahead of the crucial visit of Inter Milan on Tuesday. Werder Bremen are becoming the league's draw specialists. While Bremen goalkeeper Jiri Pavlenka could possibly have done better with Petersen's second, he made a right mess of the striker's first, dwelling on the ball in his box for an age before being dispossesed.
It's sort of been coming. The next few days could be quite turbulent. The results and way we have been playing recently have brought me to this conclusion.
If you do that you suffer a shower of goals, like we did today. Bayern Munich haven't kept a clean sheet in their last eight games but at least they have a genuine threat up top. Timo Werner's hat-trick of goals and assists was the joint most goal involvements in a game since Opta began collecting such data in The first meeting of Union and Hertha Berlin in the top flight wasn't much of a game but there were plenty of talking points on the terraces, as Matt Ford explains here.
Niko Kovac oversaw Bayern Munich's heaviest league defeat in a decade and the champions are four points off the pace. It's not all his fault but he's under pressure and doing himself no favors, thinks DW's Matt Pearson.
Manutan, a company on the move…
With more than a quarter of the season gone, the top 10 sides in the Bundesliga are separated by just five points. Some unlikely clubs are enjoying their time at the top, but is such a tight table a plus for the league? The football might have been underwhelming in the Berlin derby, but this was German fan culture at its best — until rockets were fired onto the pitch. At that point, a line has been crossed, writes DW's Matt Ford.

After his preseason performances earned him praise from Bayern Munich players and staff, the World Cup winner was in the starting lineup against Dortmund. Elsewhere, Borussia Dortmund went second after beating Wolfsburg. But the year-old striker tells DW that he's still hungry for more as he chases a Bundesliga milestone. The coach has paid the price for a disappointing start to Bayern's Bundesliga campaign despite winning the double last year.
The year-old played just four times during the season due to a foot injury and suffered with a calf issue last term. But Neuer, who will win his 90th international cap against Northern Ireland on Monday night, remains defiant in the face of questions about his potential retirement - insisting he still has an important role to play.

It's clear that I have to show it in my performance. Neuer remains No.

It excites me a lot when I'm on the pitch training or playing. It's a great fulfilment for me. I'm 33 years old but when I'm on the pitch I always feel that I can improve on my goalkeeping. Namely, how ambitious I am still. By Irishmirror. Please see our Privacy Notice for details of your data protection rights.
