SV Darmstadt 98 0-3 Bayern Munich

Arturo Vidal and Kingsley Coman both scored their first goals in the Bundesliga to help take Bayern Munich to the top of the table with a comfortable win over SV Darmstadt.

Bayern started without Thomas Muller but did not miss him as Sebastian Rode added to Coman's second-half goal.

Vidal fired Bayern ahead after 20 minutes before Coman and Rode slotted home in the space of 90 seconds.

Previous leaders Borussia Dortmund take on Bayer Leverkusen on Sunday.

Darmstadt, playing in the top flight for the first time in 33 years, had never beaten Bayern in four previous attempts.

And even though the visitors made a number of changes from the side that beat Olympiakos 3-0 in the Champions League in midweek, a shock never looked on the cards once midfielder Vidal had superbly located the top corner from 25 yards out.

Coman, a team-mate of Vidal at Juventus last season before joining Bayern on loan, then steered a low shot into the bottom corner on the forward's first Bundesliga start 17 minutes into the second half.

And less than two minutes later Rode completed the scoring when he also marked his first league start of the campaign with his opening goal as he shot home from close range after first hitting a post.

Elsewhere, Wolfsburg moved back up to third place as Netherlands international Bas Dost came off the bench to score twice, including a penalty, in a 2-0 win over Hertha Berlin.

Ingolstadt climbed to fifth with a 1-0 victory at Werder Bremen thanks to an injury-time goal from Moritz Hartmann.

Bottom club Borussia Monchengladbach are still without a point following a 1-0 defeat at fourth-placed Cologne, where a second-half header from former Blackburn loanee Anthony Modeste settled the Rhine derby.
