Eintracht Frankfurt 0-4 Bayern Munich

Thomas Muller celebrates with team-mates

Thomas Muller scored a hat-trick as Bayern Munich thrashed Eintracht Frankfurt to go seven points clear at the top of the Bundesliga.

Muller converted Franck Ribery's cross to give the unbeaten champions a half-time lead, then rounded off a counter-attack to make it 2-0.

He raced clear to complete his treble before substitute Xherdan Shaqiri late close-range effort completed the rout.

Bayern have now won six of their past seven league games.

Their closest rivals, Wolfsburg and Borussia Monchengladbach, both play on Sunday.

Elsewhere on Saturday, Schalke suffered a surprise 2-0 defeat at Freiburg, Bayer Leverkusen drew 0-0 with Mainz, Augsburg beat promoted Paderborn 3-0 and Cologne won 4-3 at Hoffenheim.
