Leaders Bayern Munich maintained their unbeaten start to their Bundesliga campaign as they thrashed bottom club Werder Bremen.

Philipp Lahm scored Bayern's first, converting Thomas Muller's pass.

A Xabi Alonso free-kick and a Muller penalty, after Sebastian Prodl had fouled him, put the champions 3-0 up.

Mario Gotze added a fourth, Lahm then scored from close range before Gotze's 25-yard strike completed the rout. Bremen did not have a shot or corner.

The victory means Bayern remain four points clear of Borussia Monchengladbach, who recorded a 3-0 win at Hannover.

OptaFranz on Twitter:
"Werder Bremen are the first team without a single shot in a Bundesliga game since detailed data analysis by Opta in 2004/05."

Pep Guardiola's side have now won six and drawn two of their opening eight league matches as they look to win the Bundesliga title for a third successive season.

This win was also a perfect warm-up before their trip to Italian side Roma for their Champions League Group E tie on Tuesday.

Lahm and Gotze netted twice, ex-Liverpool midfielder Alonso scored his first goal for Bayern since joining from Real Madrid in August and Muller scored a spot-kick in the emphatic victory.
