Bayern 4 Eintracht Frankfurt 1

Two for Tymo as champions ease to victory

An Anatoliy Tymoshchuk brace and a second-half double whammy from Thomas Müller and Mario Gomez broke a frustrating deadlock in Munich and set Bayern on their way to a fully merited home victory over a limited Eintracht Frankfurt side on Saturday.

The 69,000 capacity crowd at the Allianz Arena saw the home side dominate the first period and pepper the Eintracht goal with shots, but Theofanis Gekas cancelled out Tymoshchuk’s opener and the game was mysteriously deadlocked at the break. The double winners justly rectified the situation with goals from Müller and Gomez a minute either side of the hour, and it was a cruise to the whistle from then on, with Tymoshchuk adding a fourth at the end for good measure.

The result sees the Bavarians climb to fifth in the Bundesliga standings on 23 points from 14 games, seven off second-placed Mainz and 11 behind leaders Dortmund, who play in the evening. The men from Munich return to league action away to Schalke next Saturday, 4 December.
