Bayern cruise past Dortmund

Mario Goetze came back to haunt his former club Borussia Dortmund by setting Bayern Munich on their way to a 3-0 win and a four-point lead at the top of the Bundesliga.

Initially on the bench, Goetze came on early in the second half and, 10 minutes later, he had the ball in the back of the net, raising his hands apologetically as he refused to celebrate.

Two goals in two minutes from Arjen Robben and Thomas Muller wrapped up victory, although Dortmund could feel hard done by after doing most of the attacking and creating the better chances before Goetze's opener.

Goetze, 21, joined Dortmund when he just eight years old, and scored 31 goals in 116 appearances before switching to rivals Bayern this summer after they triggered his €37 million release clause. He missed the Champions League final between the two sides in May with a hamstring injury.
