Wolfsburg Win, Bayern Blast Eight

Bayern Munich crushed Hamburg SV 8-0 on Saturday while Bas Dost scored four goals, including a stoppage-time winner, to give VfL Wolfsburg a 5-4 victory at Bayer Leverkusen on an unforgettable day in the Bundesliga.
.
The leaders handed Hamburg the heaviest defeat in their 52-year Bundesliga history to stay eight points clear of second-placed Wolfsburg at the top of the table and respond in style to recent criticism of their performances by coach Pep Guardiola.
.
Thomas Mueller, Arjen Robben and Mario Goetze each scored twice for Bayern to sink sorry Hamburg who were beaten 9-2 in the same fixture two seasons ago when they offered their supporters a barbecue by way of apology.
.
Striker Dost became the first Dutchman to score four times in a Bundesliga game as Wolfsburg led 3-0 and 4-2 before Leverkusen, for whom Son Heung-min bagged a hat-trick, pegged them back to 4-4.
.
The drama continued elsewhere as Granit Xhaka’s last-gasp goal gave Borussia Moenchengladbach a 1-0 win over local rivals Cologne and Sebastian Rudy scored in stoppage time as Hoffenheim triumphed 2-1 against VfB Stuttgart who are now bottom.
.
Werder Bremen continued their revival with a 3-2 victory over Augsburg and Eintracht Frankfurt beat Schalke 04 1-0 with a second-half goal by Lucas Piazon.
.
The thriller in Leverkusen was as much down to dreadful defending as anything else.
.
Dost was left unmarked to head the opener, Naldo made it 2-0 when his low free kick was misjudged by Bernd Leno and Dost again escaped the attentions of the home defence to score with a deft flick, all in less then 30 minutes.
.
Wolfsburg then helped Leverkusen back into the game with some blunders of their own.
