Nine-goal Bayern close in on title

A relentless FC Bayern München overwhelmed Hamburger SV 9-2, through must wait to clinch the Bundesliga title as Borussia Dortmund, 20 pointsa behind, beat ten-man VfB Stuttgart 2-1.
FC Bayern München are edging nearer to a 23rd Bundesliga title following a devastating 9-2 victory over Hamburger SV.

Bayern's win was much more straightforward, once Xherdan Shaquiri's low rocket had put them into a fifth-minute lead. Bastian Schweinsteiger headed another before Bayern surged. An Arjen Robben double and four for Claudio Pizarro blew the visitors away, and Franck Ribéry also claimed his 50th league goal in Bayern colours.Indeed, had two-time defending champions Borussia Dortmund not won 2-1 away against ten-man VfB Stuttgart, Bayern would  have sealed the crown with seven fixtures remaining. Twenty points adrift of Bayern at the summit, Dortmund were not ready to surrender the title just yet, and took the lead in Stuttgart through Łukasz Piszczek's header. Alexandru Maxim equalised, shortly before Stuttgart lost Georg Niedermaier to a second yellow card, and Robert Lewandowski struck for his ninth game running late on.

In the pick of games elsewhere, Stefan Kiessling and André Schürrle each hit two as Bayer 04 Leverkusen beat Fortuna Düsseldorf to consolidate third, while FC Schalke 04 rose to third after three goals in the last 18 minutes sank TSG 1899 Hoffenheim.
