German giants Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund clashed for the first time this season at the Allianz Arena.
Pep Guardiola and his men have won all their games so far this season and top the table. Dortmund have enjoyed an extremely successful season as well, closely following Bayern in second place.
Dortmund beat Bayern in their last game in the DFB Semi Final on penalties so Bayern were fired up, looking to redeem themselves after that loss and boy did they do it.

Fans and casual observers expected this clash to be very close and intense, however, the game proved to be just the opposite of that. Bayern Munich steamrolled Dortmund and literally outplayed, out skilled, and manhandled Dortmund.
Thomas Muller opened the scoring after 26 minutes following a great pass from fellow German Jerome Boateng and bagged his second with a penalty nine minutes later. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang responded immediately in a rare lapse of concentration for the home side to give Dortmund a glimmer of hope, sadly they were mistaken.
Former Dortmund stars Robert Lewandowski and Mario Gotze haunted their old club and put the game to bed in the second period.
Lewandowski who seems unstoppable at the moment scored two great goals after converting another great pass from the very impressive Boateng. Gotze ended his night with a superbly placed goal after 66 minutes.
Bayern thoroughly deserved their win and played a great overall game. Dortmund on the other hand, worryingly lacked ambition, and played most of the game half-heartedly, which cost them dearly when Muller, Lewandowski and Gotze scored.
The two teams will play each other again on March 4 at the Westfalenstadion.
